Full Moon Night Ride – 29th / 30th June

This year’s 100 mile, mid-summer, full moon night ride will be from Peterborough to London, leaving Ham Lane at 8pm on Friday (29th) evening and returning by train early on Saturday (30th) morning.
Our route will take on quiet roads to Huntingdon, then through remote areas of rural Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire before following the Lee Valley Navigation to the Olympic Park and the Regents Park Canal to King’s Cross/St Pancras. Total ascent will be just over 3,300 ft (all in the first 70 miles), and the last 22 miles is almost entirely traffic free.
We’ll ride at our normal pace of 12-13 mph, but this ride is only for those who are confident they can go the distance. The group will of course wait and support anyone who has a minor problem but every rider must have their own back-up plan, just in case they have to abandon the ride in the middle of the night and possibly in the middle of nowhere! We’ll stop for a couple of refreshment breaks en route and should have time for a cooked breakfast in London before boarding the train home.
Riding through the night under a full moon and into the sunrise is something you rarely get to experience so this should be a ride to remember.
More details will be posted on Facebook nearer the time. Meanwhile, Chris Cooper can answer any queries either on Facebook or on 07472 788633
