    Dear LFGSS crew,

    After the sell out event last summer we thought we'd put together another graveltastic event for 2019 -
    AND raise more money for the St Mary's Community Centre N16.

    Here's details and tickets: northlondondirt.eventbrite.co.uk
    Do message me, or email me: northlondondirt@gmail.com with any questions.

    Blurb here!
    NLD II features a brand new seventy (ish) mile route running out of North East London and taking in as many back roads, dirt tracks and gravel paths as we’ve been able to fit in.

    It is not a hand-holding sportive, there are no signs telling you which way to go, tables full of battered banana halves and an oversized t-shirt to collect at the end...

    ...You will enjoy mighty fine coffee (courtesy of Rapha's Spitalfields Clubhouse), a new and unique route AND a quality locally brewed beer waiting for you at the end.

    NORTH LONDON DIRT is again raising funds for the New St Mary's Centre in Stoke Newington (that houses amongst other things, the Hackney Night Shelter, the Hackney Migrant Centre and the local foodbank). Since the last event, funding is ALMOST there, and building has started, a real local success story!

    Some details here: stmaryscentren16.org

    ALL of the proceeds from the event will go to this local charity.

    You'll be riding a bike with tyres suitable for road AND off-road - bearing in mind you'd be pushing it a bit with slick narrow tyres on some of the dirt tracks. (We were happiest on over 32mm gravel or 'cross tyres).

    You will be totally self-supported, riding with everything you will need to finish a ride of this length - and we'd suggest carrying two spare tubes. We'll send out a gpx and tcx file a few days before the event to ticket holders, so you'll have time to load-up a gps (there will be no signage so some kind of GPS / phone for navigation is essential)

    (This is the bit where we say: We, the organisers have no responsibility for riders or bikes in any way on this event).

    Good riding, good coffee, good beer...
    AND you're doing your bit for charity. WIN WIN WIN!

    Hope to see you at 8am for an 8.30am depart on SUNDAY 8th September 2019.

    Indeed, apologies... It is short notice!
    MW were so busy on the shop set up, the promo of this event had to follow the promo for the pop up store!

    It's a nice route for folks that like mixed surface riding!
