London Phoenix has a regular weekend training ride that departs at 7.00am every Sunday from
the Bald Faced Stag in East Finchley (map to meeting point below). The route varies from week to week, but usually loops through Potters Bar, Cuffley, Hertford and Little Berkhmstead.
The ride is open to everyone but please ensure you have read the following
BEFORE you decide to come along.
- Distance. 80 to 100km
- Average speed. 26 – 29km/h
- Duration. 3 – 4 hrs
- Profile. The route includes some hills
Please ensure you bring 2 inner tubes, along with enough food and water for the duration of the ride as there are no tea & cake stops along the way!
We will wait for anyone who punctures or who needs to “water the verge”, and we will wait a few seconds at the top of hills to regroup, but please be aware we are a race-orientated club and this is our training ride so we won’t always wait for you if you are finding the pace too high. Please be prepared to find your own way back in such a situation.
If you’re not sure you can manage the distance or pace yet, but still want to meet us on a training ride, or if you have any questions, please contact the membership secretary.
