Social Rides

We have fixed the dates for a series of training/social rides in the run up to the halow250 #magnificentseven in 2018. 250 miles over 3 days is going to be tough – particularly when the weather could be slightly challenging! Getting the miles in the saddle will make the event far more enjoyable and getting out on as many of these rides as you can will be a useful part of your training.

As with last year we will again be running the Magnificent Seven Test. This is essential for ALL riders who have not been on the trip before as it will give you an idea of how your training is progressing and enable us to suggest what you need to do to get to the required standard.

The rides will be ‘no-drop’ groups and we will adjust the routes to suit the riders who turn up on the day. We plan to run two sessions on each date – one normally from Richmond Park (Roehampton Gate Café) and the other from the Merry Harriers, Hambledon, Surrey. All details will be notified 2 weeks beforehand with the actual start location and route maps. These are great opportunities to meet some of the team and the other riders. Routes will be send out the week before to those who have expressed an interest in joining us.
