There was some interest on here about starting a rag tag 'cycling club', and as i've just bought a new bicycle i'm going to attempt to make it happen.
I'm proposing the first ride for this Sunday (time TBC, but probably mid morning start). It'll be a fairly easy 30 mile round trip from Dalston to Richmond Park and back. Most likely with a stop off/cycle round the park itself to look at the deer.
It's open to anyone that wants to come along, so do invite others you know who might be interested. The idea is that it's not a super serious cycling club full of middle age men in lycra, but instead a fairly relaxed group of keen enthusiast cyclists who like to ride longer distances without any of the pressure.
At the same time however, it would be helpful if you're not going to cycle for 10 minutes and complain about being bored or tired. A basic level of commitment will make it better for everyone.
If we start off with this relatively easy one to see how it goes, we can then look at other/longer routes in future.
I'm awaiting a formal reply from my co-host Smee, but thought i'd start a thread to see who's available and interested.
