A ride in the Park
Our first BDOVELO Richmond Park Ride was designed as a slightly less strenuous alternative to our usual rides, giving riders of all ages and abilities the chance to enjoy a convivial networking atmosphere. On Friday the quiet roads gave the option of relaxing chat, but also the opportunity for training tips and riding advice.
Amongst the usual suspects, we were delighted to welcome Amanda, Jennifer, Ras, Pauline, Jo, Lucy, Katrin and Helena, and hope this will see more female riders join us at the park rides in future. We also had bike set-up specialist Phil Cavell from Cyclefit on hand, who was able to advise riders looking to find their perfect position.
After a variation on laps and cut-throughs on the park lanes, coffee and cake were enjoyed before our team headed off in all directions having enjoyed a fun and an amazingly dry morning. A special thanks to Richmond Cycles for the loan of a bicycle and to the famous Cowley Road Condors for their support.
