Stow Cyclists is a group of intermediate cyclists who may not be into club runs or competing but, nonetheless, are keen to take on challenging distances. Stow Cyclists love a day in the saddle! Following the recent passing of my father I have elected to establish the David Bellamy Memorial Ride in 2016. On Sunday, 22nd May 2016, departing at 0900 from Walthamstow Town Hall (E17 4JF) we will ride to Southend Pier AND BACK in one day - a ride of around 76 miles. We are raising funds to enable looked after children in care and young carers to enjoy at least one day out at the seaside, fully funded. This year we plan to fund four, 10 minibus trips - so around 150 children per trip or 600 children in total including fish and chips for lunch and access to the seaside facilities. Ensure you bring fluids and food as well as spare tubes and appropriate clothing. Inevitably cyclists have different average speeds so we may end up splitting into three groups: - Speedies - averaging up to 20mph Cruisers - averaging around 15mph Endurance - steadily averaging 12.5 mph Initially it would be helpful to start as a single group but we expect group leaders to emerge for the two faster groups. As Founder, I'll lead the Endurance group. We are raising funds for Community Transport Waltham Forest who will provide the transport for the child beneficiaries and manage the funding raised and I'm currently looking into procuring customized cycling jerseys for the event proper.
