Ride London Video

Pete Ganderton put together a really nice video of the first few km through London early in the morning. He says:

"I think what I love most about RideLondon is the chance to fly through the city, not having to worry about cars...it's a very unique experience!

I had a GoPro mounted under my handlebars today...just done a quick and dirty edit of the footage showing the fun of ploughing along in a fast pack.

(right at the end, laugh at me getting a roundabout wrong...)"

Sportive and Audax for week ending 19th July 2015

RIDE IT Essex Sportive 19th July

Brian Perry had a warm and breezy day in the Ride It Essex Medium Sportive on Sunday 19th. Starting south of Chipping Ongar and reaching almost as far as Stansted, the route covered 110km along quiet rolling country lanes through some of the prettiest Essex villages. I covered much of the ride in single file groups, sheltering from the breeze. The final 20km introduced more demanding gradients which broke up the mini-pelotons. I achieved a respectable average speed nearly 18 mph.
