We have a great relationship with the Bigfoot Cycle Club in Bromley, having welcomed various members on tour over the years. They are kind enough to invite us on their annual Hot Cross Buns Ride from Hayes (Bromley) to Brighton and back as their guests. This year is no exception and all TDFers are cordially invited along. Full details below:
This year the ride takes place on Friday 21st April 2017 and is being organised by our friends at our local bike shop, Panagua Bikes, but remains predominantly a Bigfoot cycle club ride. Panagua have worked hard to preserve the organisation and aims of the ride developed by Hugh Webb (TDF Lifer) over the last 10 years so if you have ridden with us in the past, you will instantly recall a ride where camaraderie, fun and achievement are the hallmarks.
The ride of 100 miles is organised into three groups. Here is the link to the details: http://bigfootcc.co.uk/2017/02/hot-x-buns-2017/
- Hot group at 13-14mph.
- Cross group at 14-15mph.
- Buns group at 15-16mph.
