    Friday Night Ride from Reading to Oxford (and back) Ride Report

    It was great to get out on my first FNRttC* for a very long time. Meet up was outside the station in Reading, for a midnight departure as usual. There were 20-odd of us, five of us on Bromptons. Unlike the traditional London starts there was no two hour suburban slog to get out of the...

    FNRttC Friday Night Ride to the Coast (and back again) Fen Bridges 30th April Ride report

    The second night ride of 2021, and slightly different, as we ride to the coast at King's Lynn, then back again. My phone did not like the cold and flaked out after King's Lynn. This was very frustrating as we had a brilliant sunrise. Barry and other riders shared their photos, which I've...

    FNRttC Friday Night Ride to the Coast- Amble to Ashford, 23 April. Ride report

    Yes, we're back, the first night ride of the year. In legally-compliant fashion, two groups of a dozen hardy souls (those Garmins with temperature readings were reporting sub-zero) set out from the South Bank (surrounded by groups of those not exactly keeping their distance, it was very busy...

    FNRttC Friday Night Ride to Whitstable, 21 August. Ride report.

    The Fridays' lock down rides continue to broaden. After starting with loops, some end to ends, like London to Ashford a couple of weeks ago…and now this, the first of the old favourites to return. Brighton on the 14th… New abnormal post-work routine. Changing in the changing room at work, 2208...

    FNRttC Friday Night Ride- Ashford Amble, 7 August. Ride report

    Having written up last night's nocturnal pedalling, the thought occurred I ought to write this one up before the next one (I'm on the list for Whitstable this Friday)… Like the Windsor ride, the slightly amended post-work routine was in effect. No 2138 train, so the 2208 (and changing in an...

    FNRttC Friday Night Ride- A Windsor Wander, 10 July 2020. Ride report.

    …and we're back. This wasn't the first of the rebooted, regulation-compliant rides (they started at the beginning of the month), but the first overnight one. As @rb58 has posted elsewhere, rides are being posted on the Fridays FB page at the moment- these few rides are a trial to see what works...

    FNRttC Friday Night Ride; London to Eastbourne. 19th July 2019

    I am delighted to announce a FNRTTC to a brand new destination! which will be going through some of the finest Sussex countryside. At over 70 miles, it will be one of our longer rides and also one of our hilliest. So may not appeal to everyone. We'll escape London via Dulwich and Crystal...

    England : Isle of Wight Night Ride Around The Coast 2019 (May 3)

    EDIT: Due to Wightlink changing their timetable for no good reason, we will now be taking the 0100 ferry, there's no midnight one. Earlier sailing (2300) is too early for me on a work night, sorry (I did try getting the night off some weeks back, before I heard of the timetable alterations, no...

    England : London An ABH Night Ride to Somewhere

    At this moment, I should have been either making my way home from Whitstable, or dozing after returning. Instead, I'm sitting here due to acts of Land Rover Discovery & mourning a bike (goodbye YBR, you died too young). Hopefully, I'll be able to cycle Monday if not tomorrow because my Honda's...

    England : Isle of Wight Night Ride Around the Coast 2018 (May 4)

    Yes, ladies and gentlemen, the hardest night ride in the south of England is back again, for the fifth time. Previous attempts at finding a refreshment stop were unsuccessful, and the peloton for this one has for some reason remained compact and bijou. Oh, I remember: It's because there are...

    The hilly, Northerly ride is back on 4th August this year. I'll post more info, including sign-up details, in a little while but it's probably a good time to look at train bookings. We start from Central Manchester (Albert Square, in front of the town-hall) so any of the main MCR stations are...

    England : Isle of Wight Night Ride Around the Coast 2017 (May 19)

    Yes, ladies and gentlemen, the hardest night ride in the south of England is returning for its fourth edition. Last year,I came up with a Cunning Plan for both boosting numbers and making a halfway stop possible. Unfortunately, after an initial positive response from contacts over the water...

    First night ride

    just come back from a quick flirt on the bike in the dark, and I like it ^_^. First off though I'd like to say I didn't fall off ^_^. It was exhilarating to say the least. A lot more folk about on their bikes although some were going home from work or whatever. Completely different to the day...

    FNRttC Friday Night Ride to Cambridge - 14th October

    And finally……………..the last official FNRttC of the year. Except the “C” doesn’t mean the coast, as we’re heading inland, for that mecca of cycling, Cambridge. But it’s still a FNRttC! We’ll be leaving Hyde Park Corner at midnight, heading for unknown territory through the badlands of...

    First night ride last night!

    Another first for me last night! Less than a week after my first audax I done a 70 mile ride from Brampton to Sunderland last night. Was amazing and recommend it to anyone who is a keen cyclist :)

    FNRttC Friday Night Ride Manchester-Morecambe 5th August.

    It's on again, the most Northerly of the Friday night rides and the one that reaches the highest elevation even if it doesn't necessarily have the most climbing. As in previous years, we'll start from Albert Square in front of the Town Hall and we'll stop at a 24 hour McDonalds in Blackburn for...
