17 March. A faster ride than the usual Sunday London Ride, so expect a moving average of 13 - 14mph. Leaving HPC at 9.30am and heading to the pretty little fishing village of Old Leigh. Distance is around 40 miles, with a couple of testy hills. We'll aim for The Peterboat pub, which is the largest pub in the village, with views over the fishing boats and a large outdoor seating area. Old Leigh can get busy though, so a decent lock is recommended. Leigh-on-Sea station is just a few hundred metres away for trains back to London. The small print, just as a reminder: This is not a formal ride under the auspices of any club. We will be just a bunch of friends on a ride together and my role will be simply to guide us along a route. As such, you will be riding under your own insurance. If the weather is biblical, there could be postponed. Hands up if you're interested.
