Richmond Park Ride
A threatening weather forecast mellowed into a sunny spring day for our ride around Richmond Park. We met over coffee first thing at the Roehampton Gate cafe, Colicci and formed into two groups of cyclists.
Group one aimed to develop group riding skills, focussing on smooth, efficient and co-operative cycling - and after a lap they settled into a good rhythm, practicing chain gang techniques, lead-outs and sprinting. Group two focussed on developing their confidence on the bike while working on their fitness and enjoying the sights of the park.
Between laps we stopped off back at the cafe to chat bikes and business over coffee and cake. It was great to welcome some new faces, and catch up with returning riders. Thank you to everyone who turned up. We look forward to welcoming you to our upcoming events at the Oval and in West Sussex.
