• Charity Ride: Cobble Monster

    Brixton Cycles

    For several years this has been a favourite fun ride in London that is similar in landscape to the Paris-Roubaix and Tour of Flanders such as lung bursting steep hills and bone-shaking cobble stones plus great camaraderie with the participants. This ride can be done on any bike at your own pace, but the limited event registration places go fast... http://cobblemonster.com Where the money you raise goes A word from the Evelina Children’s Hospital:- Chances are you know a little girl or boy who is at the Evelina Children’s Hospital right now so you know how much our hospital means to children and parents alike. The Evelina was designed by children for children and we make sure every little patient feels as good as possible. Creatively themed floors, multi-sensory experiences, art workshops and music, and definitely no ‘hospital smell’ are among the special ingredients at the Evelina. Treating over 100,000 children a year, the Evelina has 140 in-patient beds, including 20 intensive care beds; over 50 neonatal/special care baby cot spaces of varying degrees of dependency; 5 dedicated operating theatres; one of only 3 hospital radio stations in the UK; a hospital school and a comprehensive imaging service for diagnosis and treatment, so this is no ordinary children’s hospital. By raising money for the Evelina Children’s Hospital at Guy’s and St Thomas’ you can make an incredible difference to the lives of hundreds of young patients every year. £1000 could purchase special gifts for children staying in hospital over Christmas £2000 could help pay for baby ‘nests’ to keep 20 premature babies comfortable in their cots £3000 could support our performing arts programme to give young patients the chance to relax and be entertained £4000 could provide a mobile sensory unit to stimulate, develop and provide re-adjustment for children who have come from surgery, who have special needs or who are bed bound. £5000 could help pay for a team of kidney transplant patients to compete for the Evelina in the national transplant games £6000 could go towards the cost of a special care incubator. There’s no arguing that The Evelina Children’s Hospital is a vital resource - all proceeds from The Cobble Monster (formerly the London Classic) contribute towards providing these services to help young patients. https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/Team/CobbleMonster2019 http://cobblemonster.com https://youtu.be/Ca6iOXJNZKw http://www.kcl.ac.uk/newsevents/news/newsrecords/2015/January/3D-copy-of-patients-heart-.aspx http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02hrgs5 https://youtu.be/tn8OGPC65gk http://www.kcl.ac.uk/newsevents/news/newsrecords/2015/February/Eating-peanut-at-an-early-age-prevents-peanut-allergy-in-high-risk-infants.aspx #cobblemonster

  • Christmas Lights Tour

    Location visible to members

    £1.00

    This great ride may be a seasonal reminder of the wonders of cycling. A fun chance to marvel at the Christmas lights of perhaps the best city in the world whilst cruising on a bike passing recognisable London landmarks in the company of others. This ride may burn up around 600 kcal in calories, so an interesting yet relaxed workout covering 15 miles of magical scenery. This event will probably be completed within 3 hours. Meet around 7:30 pm for a pre ride introduction to others for chats and coffees. We will set off at 8:00 pm. There may be the option of a social pub stop at the end in a central London location near Trafalgar Square. For those cyclists who do not wish to do the whole route there will be a few train and underground stations along the route, so if you wish to join us for part of the ride and then take the train/tube back en route you are welcome to. No one will be left behind, however if you are struggling to keep up then we will point you in the direction of the nearest station. Line of sight or electronic means of contact will be intended to be maintained throughout the ride. Nevertheless, in case you have to bail or get dropped for some reason, it may be advisable to carry a smart phone/satellite navigation device and make yourself familiar with software and websites that are capable guiding you back home via GPS and train journey planning such as Transport for London and National Rail. As we'll be in Central London rather than Antarctica, just keep calm and carry on. This ride is suitable for most bikes; geared, single speed and fixed. It can be done with between 23mm road bike and 36mm mountain bike tyres without too much fuss! Having the right clothing such as breathable water/wind proofs means the weather such as rain may be incidental to another bike event going ahead. This meetup may be weather dependent so 12 hours before the event begins if blizzards, earthquakes, tsunamis or plagues of locust are forecast then the event may be cancelled, please check this website and your emails the evening before the event begins. Helmets, lights and a spare inner tube will be compulsory. Every week someone has a puncture. For peace of mind, if your bike is relatively expensive and/or insured it may be advisable to bring a lock for the optional pub stop near Trafalgar Square. We aim to keep bikes close and secure, although depending on seating availability on the night we may not have direct line of sight of bikes during the pub stop. https://youtu.be/z1rYmzQ8C9Q
