Don your finest replica kit and join us for a ride to Brighton and back this July. While we’re out in our club kit most weekends there’s something to be said for heading out for a ride feeling like you’re Tadej Pogačar / Chris Froome / Lance Armstrong / Marco Pantani …. you get the idea.
The more outlandish the kit the better, and extra points for anyone with socks to match their jersey and shorts. Or you could go one better and mix and match your kit. Why not go all out and offend everyone’s eyes with a pair of white and green Credit Agricole shorts matched with the classic colourful squares of the Mapei jersey? Literally anything goes for this ride.
If you don’t have any pro kit feel free to wear whatever you like. But remember, there’s always ebay.
We’ll be leaving Caterham at 8am, passing through Reigate (pick up from Maison du velo around 8.25am) and heading out via Rusper, Hammer ponds, Twineham and up over Devils Dyke before dropping down for elevenses at the Regency Cafe on the seafront.
The return leg is up past the race course and on to Ditchling Beacon, then back through the lanes the reverse route of the London to Brighton ride – Wivelsfield, Ardingley, Turners Hill, South Nutfield.
This (approx) 85 mile ride is open to members and friends of members. A good level of fitness is required, although people have been known to get the train back from Brighton.
