Intro to club riding 9.30 at Kafe 1788 in Chrisp Street

Ever thought about taking up Cycling as a sport or looking to meet new people with a passion for cycling? The Poplar Peddlars are going to be riding from Chrisp Street to High Beech in Epping and Back, about 55km on Saturday 25th March 2017.

You will need your own bike and a basic level of fitness, but we will ride at the pace of the slowest rider. The ride will take place on roads so you will need to be comfortable in traffic, but riding in a group helps!

Whilst the ride is fairly flat there is one substantial climb, but don't worry just go at your own pace and if you have to walk at some point that's totally fine, we want people to enjoy the ride and want to do it again. It will however add to the experience of riding, so challenge yourself!

You don't need a fancy bike, clip in pedals, although some people will have that, and you don't need to fully Lycra clad but comfortable clothing helps.

Bring a few pounds as we will start with a coffee, if you want,  at Kafe 1788 in Chrisp Street and again at High Beech (they only take cash).

We will be out for few hours so do free up the morning!

Most of all come along and enjoy the ride, cycling gives you chance to elevate your heart rate whilst also getting to know other riders, the idea for this ride is that it is fun for everyone. If you're looking to enter the Tour,  we do have some people riding faster at other times! We hope that you might be able to find a group of people that you might like to start cycling with on a more regular basis.

We will be planning more shorter social rides in the future if this isn't for you,
