Join Us for Our London Social Rides
November 17, 2017
London-area ElliptiGO riders are invited for a Winter season of rides led by Philippa Robb. Rides are social and will aim to stretch rather than exhaust the commuting London ElliptiGO rider! All interested riders are welcome and encouraged to join the fun.
Rides will leave on the first Saturday of January, February and March from the Chelsea Theatre located on the Kings Road (post code SW10 0DR). Rides leave promptly at 10.00am and will return to the Kings Road for 2.00pm. Please arrive by 9.45am! Mark the following dates on your calendar: 6th January, 3rd February and 3rd March.
6th January Ride
We will route from Chelsea Theatre to Putney Bridge via Imperial Wharf, then north along the Thames to Hammersmith Bridge, through Barnes via Lonsdale Road and the farmers market into Richmond Park via Roehampton Gate. We’ll then loop around the park and stop either back at Roehampton Gate or Pembroke Lodge for a coffee break. We will return through Barnes and briefly along the south side of the river (the towpath, unless it’s very muddy in which case we will route north) to Putney Bridge, then along the south side of the river and the paved riverfront through Putney and Battersea, over Battersea Bridge and on to Embankment which routes us back to Chelsea Bridge for 2.00pm.
The ride is free – just bring cash for cafe stop and Barnes farmers market if anyone would like to briefly stop off there!
