Not an end-to-end but a moderately challenging two-day ride from London to Stratford-upon-Avon - starting close to the Olympic Velodrome and finishing at the new Royal Shakespeare Theatre.

It's on Saturday 30 April - Sunday 1 May 2011 and is an organised, fully-supported two day ride of about 100 miles - an overnight stop, superb scenery ... something a bit different.

A new Forum has been added to the site for discussion and sharing ideas, routes etc.  - you'll need to register to use it.   There are links in the Resource tabs on the left and Quick Links on the right.

Anyone can view the Forum but you'll need to register to post.

There is also a Private Messaging facility for intra-forum messages (Registered users only) - you can set your own preferences to be notified of new PMs by e-mail.

For the techies : it's a new component and there may be a few glitches that will need to be fixed - please be patient if it doesn't do what you think it should/could do, and please do tell me - at  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

The Forum was abandoned - there are other resources - especially at CycleChat.net


 

The Ride Calendar shows those riders that have listed their E2Es ... it's been suggested that sharing transport etc could be useful and perhaps save money ... and there is also the opportunity to be put in touch with other riders to perhaps team up.

For obvious reasons the website can't pass details on a speculative basis BUT if you want to send a message to  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  with the date/name of the rider that we should forward it to that may be useful.

[There was a forum on the site a while ago for exactly this purpose - it wasn't used so I closed it ... perhaps it could be reinstated, and with a PM facility would be useful]


The New Year dawns . . . all those resolutions to keep and cycling miles to get in - and training if you are planning your E2E this year.

If you are looking for a weekend training ride why not join this year's MacRide Tour? - it's a fully supported ride of about 100 miles over a day and half from London to Stratford-upon-Avon .. everything's organised for you, including overnight B&B accommodation ... and we even have an event jersey. 


 

Almost the end of the year and for many cyclists the first thoughts about planning THE BIG RIDE for next year .... if it's going to be an End-to-End don't forget to have a bowse around the site for information and inspiration . . . and then to list your ride dates.

. . . and a plug for the JOGLE/LEJOG map book and guides and our book, Wine-ding Down Through France, the story of Rob  & Jon's French ride in 2008  - from the ONLINE SHOP.

With best wishes for 2011
