Lock Down Rides - 2020
Whilst we all grapple with the Coronavirus pandemic The Fridays is unable to run any large group rides. Instead, we have instigated a series of smaller rides compliant with government policy on gatherings and social distancing. There are a variety of rides - daytime (weekends mostly), evening, and night time. The rides vary in type, distance and difficulty. But all will be consistent with The Fridays philosophy of being accessible to all.
We're adding these rides a few at a time until we are able to hold large group rides again. Details of each ride will be posted here so keep checking back for updates and new rides.
Until government policy changes there are a maximum of five spaces on each ride, plus the ride leader. These spaces are allocated strictly on a first come, first served basis. When all spaces have been taken, we will start a reserve/waiting list. Registration is in the usual way. After you have completed the registration form you will be notified by the ride leader whether you have secured a place, or whether you are on the waiting list. Please wait for this confirmation before making any arrangements, such as booking train tickets.
Please contact us if you have any questions about any of the rides.
So far we've ridden overnight to Kings Lynn, Brighton, Ashford, Whitstable, and the Chilterns. We've done tours of London tracking down topiary, talking statues, some of London's best views and iconic locations. And we've had day time and evening rides along the Thames, around Kent, the Fens, Essex, Hertfordshire and the Chilterns. We've even gone off-road!
Upcoming rides are:
13 December, day time - The Tiny Sunday London Ride
Ride leader: Ross
A gentle bimble around London, with regular stops to look at some of London's smallest things. Some you'll be familiar with, others perhaps not. Probably around 20 miles all told. Start from Hyde Park mid-morning, ending up in Clerkenwell for refreshments around 2pm. Definitely not fast. Hopefully interesting.
UPDATE: We're running four groups of six riders for this ride, each with a different start time. However, all groups are now fully subscribed and the waiting list is also full, so no further registrations are possible.
