Time for a big-un. Off we go to the Blue Egg.
Leaving early, returning late. Its a long ride of over 100miles from LMNH (ish), and I think we'll probably nick Tao Geoghegan Hart's route* making it even longer:
Need a decent sized group for this, and lots of people with the route for when my Garmin fails.
About the same pace as the last Essex ride, probably a little slower.
Should be fun!
Dang!!! Looks good!
Probably won't be coming this one due to the clash with this:
Have fun guys!
probably a little slower
probably a little slower
Whats with detour around Blackmore? No point taking any other route back in London apart from Epping new rd .. its less evil of the alternatives.
^ I've heard this before every ride. Never seen it happen yet...
I didn't create the route. Just nicked it from Rapha.
@branwen- I'm at a conference all week. Will be super fat.
Can't even take bike. :(
Tom 6pt and Henry 'brows will never be fat nor slow, don't believe their lies.
(ps, love you guys)
Totally into this if I can convince my riding buddies to come too. Might add 3 or 4 onto the peloton.
Me and @Joeboat might be keen for this. What kinda pace are you thinking (knowing how fast TTM is...!) ?
@TTM @eyebrows x 0.85
Of threshold?? K yeh no problem.
We did the last Essex ride at 18.9 average for the Essex part.... Probably looking at 17ish average for this. I wont be putting the hammer down at any point, except for the return down Epping shithouse road. (When I get round to fixing the route).
Also- to be confirmed but @6pt is on holiday I think.
Also if @dbr you can make it that'd be sweet!
I'm gonna make some rice cakes/energy bars for this... Will try bringing a musette full for handing out, but only if I g t some time to do so (will confirm Friday).
& in further response to@amey earlier I'll be editing it to straight through Blackmore for ease of return and ditto with Epping shithouse road. (If anyone wants to do that- I'd be grateful!)
Count me in then
I'll do it
Could just reverse it, tbh...
Would really like to make this ride but am busy...though I would say that for me personally, doing virtually all my riding out in Essex from East London, I don't get the preference for Epping New Road...busy with traffic, which is generally speeding, and a shitty surface to boot. I often prefer to go out and back through Lambourne...
care to show on google maps? Every other alternative that I've taken so far has turned out to be worse than ENR .. esp via Chigwell
I really want to ride this but I'm doing 120 miles solo :*( the day before and will be staying at my parents afterwards which is on the wrong side of London. Will make a last minute in if I up for it but for now consider me out.
I do virtually the same route as the return bit shown above between Woodford and Bournebridge, except I tend to use on Bournebridge lane rather than Hook lane. It still has plenty of duff surface, but I find it more pleasant traffic wise.
Me plus at least two others are in for this.
In Sardinia until Sunday evening. 35º! Enjoy your pedalling, I'll be getting fat and trying to lose my glove tanlines.
This looks like it's going to be a good turn out, wish I wasn't stuck up north now! =(
Haven't had time to make energy bars. Will see you all Sunday.
Do we have a new gpx? Or just the one above.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
