As we hit the colder months, you would think that riding will stop, well were hopeful we can keep going as much as possible and get people out riding regularly from learners to club riders and everywhere in between.
The learn to ride sessions have been really well attended at the Linc Centre with a group regularly turning up even in the rain to learn new skills or refresh long forgotten ones. Great to see a group heading out this week as well even though there was no planned lesson, they just wanted to ride, which is what we are all about. Keep you're eyes on the events page for up coming lessons extending to the Aberfeldy estate after the half term.
A few of us headed over to Bespoke Cycle shop at Canary Wharf last night for the chance to ride on really expensive bikes whilst racing against each other on an interactive trainer called Zwift. With four bikes lined up and a 9km course ahead tension was high as three Peddlers vied to be King of the Mountain and get the fastest time on the night.
It was a really fun event and Zwift is a fun way to exercise through the winter months, but you will need a turbo trainer and an internet connection to make it work. The guys at Bespoke put on a great show and showed great hospitality. They have really encouraged us to develop the club and staff members have joined us on weekend rides.
And finally the new club shirts arrived this week and caps and T-shirts so they will be available on the website soon. The Shirts are really great quality and huge thanks to Blackmore for working with us to design an eye catching Jersey that we hope to see out on the road more and more. All proceeds will be ploughed back in to the club.
