AIPPI 2019 in London – Come ride with me!

AIPPI 2019 London Tour invitation

 

13 September – Countryside Cruise

Long Wal;k Windsor CastleAll day ride – Friday

(Two days before AIPPI 2019)

This will be a fun day to see the countryside rather than just crank out kilometers.

The route is still to be confirmed and suggestions are welcome.

The current plan is:

  • the Deer Park – Richmond Park loop;
  • meeting at 7.30 am (for 8.00 am start) at On Your Bike (The Vaults, Montague Close, London Bridge, London, SE1 9DA); for a total of
  • about 120 km including the additional distance to and from the bike shop.

I have hired a bike and am told:

  • Deluxe means TREK with aluminium frame, carbon fork and 105 groupset; and
  • Super Deluxe means TREK with full carbon and Ultegra.

Electric bikes are available from the same shop.

Suggested jersey for the day.
