On Sunday 20th July 2014, thousands of women around the world will ride 100km.
Rapha CCLDN will be leading an official training ride leading up to the event in order to prepare riders for the 100km challenge. Please see below for more details:
This ride involves getting the train from Waterloo to Hampton Court (around £11).
Meeting place: Rapha CCLDN at 10:00, followed by a short ride to the station leaving London Waterloo at 10:57 (please pre purchase tickets but we will leave enough time to buy tickets prior to the train departure)
or directly at Hampton Court at the
Dish Cafe at 11.45 (opposite Hampton Court station, address: 3 Bridge Road, East Molesey, Surrey, KT8 9EU.)
Coffee and a ride bar will be provided for those meeting at the CCLDN.
Please note that there will be no return to CCLDN as we cannot guarantee that we will be able to be back before the Sunday closing time, however, upon return to Hampton Court everyone will be encouraged to take a train back together.
This ride will consits of two groups with varying paces: advanced 28-30 km/hour and intemediate 24-26 km/hour, both of which will be led by 3 Rapha female ride leaders.
The Women's 100 is a global event, you can ride on your own or join an organised ride. Rides will be taking place everywhere, including several led by Rapha. Over 8,000 women took part in 2013 — this year we’re aiming to double that number.
Riders that complete the Women’s 100 will receive a woven badge to commemorate their achievement.
-No fixed gear or tri bikes.
-Helmet use is compulsory .
THIS IS A SOCIAL CLUB RIDE, NOT A RACE.
- Club riding is about working together as a group, do not surge or pass the route leader at any time. The only exception to this rule is when climbing, always wait at the top for the group to catch up.
SIGNALLING AND ROAD HAZARDS.
- Always make the group aware of oncoming traffic or road hazards such as potholes and debris when necessary.
- It is important to hold your line with no sudden movements, always check if there’s room and signal to move out.
- If you’re not sure of the signalling conventions used in group riding, please ask the ride leaders before the ride departs.
- Under no circumstances should you cross wheels with the rider in front of you, this is dangerous and can cause accidents.
BIKE MAINTENANCE AND SAFETY.
key - All riders are responsible for their own well-being during the ride and should be prepared for situations such as adverse weather conditions, mechanical problems and flat tyres.
- Helmet use is compulsory.
- Lights must be fitted onto your bike if needed.
- You should have any basic tools you may require; we recommend inner tubes, pump, tyre levers and relevant allen keys.
- Ensure your bike is well maintained and clean, check brake pads and tyres for signs of wear.
- We recommend fitting mudguards.
