CANCELLED due to weather ~ Sat Morning Coffee @ Giro Cycle Cafe in Esher

  • to
  • Cafe Stop (Roehampton Gate)

    Priory Lane, Richmond Park, SW15 5JR (map)

    51.450901 -0.255371

  • This ride is for members ranked Easy, Easy+ and Intermediate level, and who would like an opportunity for some group-cycling practise. It will also give newer members an opportunity for their first ride and to meet some of the organisers and other members. 

    This will be a leisurely-paced cycle to Giro coffee shop in Esher and will be suitable for slower riders and those with road, hybrid and folding bikes. Please note: this ride will utilise main roads, so experience of cycling on roads will be necessary. 

    The round trip is approx 20 miles, from Roehampton Gate coffee shop in Richmond Park to Giro cycling cafe in Esher and back again to the coffee shop.  The ride should take approximately three hours, depending on how much time we spend at the coffee shop. 

    Please ensure that you bring everything you need with you: spare inner tubes, pumps, levers, waterproof jacket, water bottle, snacks and money etc. 

    We look forward to seeing you. :-)

    I'm kind of glad for me that that happened, only just found out my waitlist changed to confirmed.
    Don't want no shows before my first ride with you. I'll keep an eye out and sign up for when this is re-confirmed.

    I'm new to Road fiding around London. Have done it elsewhere, but probably best if my London road debut takes place on a less windy day. My apologies for the late notice. Ride safely everyone. I hope this ride can be repeated. How does Saturday 15 March sound for another attempt.

    • Melanie

      Great idea Jane I would second that as that's the earliest date I can do now

    Shame about the weather, but sensible to cancel. After a short cycle home in the wind and rain last night I realise I'm definitely a fair weather cyclist. Forecasts of 48 mph gusts don't sound great when you only have two wheels to keep you on the straight and narrow.

    Hey safety first! I have already waded through floods on three occasions but winds do slow me down. hope to join you all when re-scheduled.

    Is this ride still going ahead if so what time do you anticipate reaching the cafe as would be easier to make my own way there can't see myself cycling 'fast' in such strong winds.

    February 15, 2014

  • Linda H.

    Sorry folks but a rain check for me as forecast not good and need to stay cool/dry for big ride next week!

    Weather is looking bogus for Sat AM (tho' this might change). Will this ride proceed if it's wet, windy?

    If I could tag onto the waiting list for this one would be good to see you all for a laid-back ride just down the road from my home territory...

  • Sean O.

    Hi Claudia. You've set the time for 10pm. I'm going to assume it's 10am and sign up anyway :)

    • Susan de S.

      Well done Linda! Out of interest how did you find out? Was it by post and if so, was it a big, bulky envelope?

      February 5, 2014

  • Holly

    Sounds like the event I've been waiting for! I'm not officially ranked sorry but I'd say probably easy level.
