#GreatNorthRide: Community Rides!

A huge reason for undertaking the North Sea Cycle Route in particular, was the opportunity to explore my home turf (the UK) a bit more before heading across to Europe.

A few people have asked if they could join me for sections as I make my way down through the UK — to which my response has been HECK YEAH!

I’m really happy to launch these community ride dates! As a proud #GetOutside champion for Ordnance Survey, I love encouraging you guys to… well, get outside! So, if any are close to you, put the date in your diary — I would absolutely LOVE you to get involved:

A couple of things to bear in mind:

  • The rides are totally free and everyone is welcome! Feel free to join for the entire section or just part of it.
  • I am unsupported throughout my ride and the same goes for these sections so please ensure that you have everything you need to complete the section without mechanical assistance (i.e. spare inner tubes, bike pump, puncture repair kit, etc)
  • Stopping times will be kept to a minimum so please bring plenty of snacks, water, etc!
  • I have a fully loaded bike so the pace will be a little slower than usual ;)

The details/meeting places:

Dundee — Saturday 26th May.

Meeting outside the Dundee Backpackers Hostel: 71 High St, Dundee DD1 1SD at 8:00am. Ready to hit the road at 8:30am

Lincolnshire Wolds — Saturday 2nd June.

Meeting at the Three Horseshoes Pub: Shoe Lane, Goulceby LN11 9WA. Ready to hit the road at 9:30am

Tilbury, Essex — Saturday 9th June.

Meeting at the Tilbury Ferry port: Station Approach, Tilbury RM18 7NJ 8:00am. Ready to get the 8:30am ferry to Gravesend and continue from there!

If you have any questions then drop me a line! However, please note I’ll have limited access to emails on the road so if your question can be answered by Google, please do try that first ;) I’ll keep this page and social media updated with any changes.

I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible there!
