  • Welcome to the first ride of the CS Grupetto festive season.

    We will meet outside the Roehampton Café, Richmond Park at 8:30am for an 8:45am roll-out.

    The route will be around 75km, and after escaping suburbia, will wind its way along country lanes, heading out to take on the north face of the Surrey Hills just a little short of Shere. On summiting one of the legendary climbs, followed by a brief pause to take in the stunning views, a long open descent will flow into quieter back roads leading all the way back to the river at Hampton Court. A calmer stretch alongside Bush Park will then take us to a lively bunch finish back in Richmond Park.

    For this ride we are teaming up with our friends at The Dynamo in Putney who will be selling post-ride food and drinks. Check out their excellent range at the-dynamo.

  • Sounds good @will, I'll create a Facebook event for it too once you have a route.

  • I should be able to add the route tonight.

    Update: @Ricky - I have added a route

  • Regrettably out.

  • Here's the route...

    N.B. Westerners please note that this ride does not go out via Bushy Park but instead runs along the other side of the river (but it does come back via Hampton Court). This is pure disruption.

  • Down Staple Lane! You spoil me.

  • Yes, the route includes quite a few surprising innovations, and even some sections that I'm certain have never been ridden (by CS Grupetto) before.

  • Nice route, and it has an on-trend gravel section too.

  • But of course. (Which bit is that?)

  • River Lane, just by the Mole Valley Predators Football Club - bit of gravel and a river crossing. Pretty short sector though so should be fine.

    If I get a pass I will be rolling on my 40mm rubber so no problems.

  • I've re-routed but we can of course still 'go gravel' and into the river if we want­mPI

    I've also checked that the route avoids any fields of rams­/videos/1177942215605711/

  • The ride description is so wonderful that I feel I simply have no option but to attend... IN

    Have invited my buddy Ben who would be a great addition to the club if thats cool

  • This is good news. Welcome onboard.

  • Yep no problem, Ben is welcome to come along too.

  • Also in

  • Wish I was in. Working instead.

    Fucking Christmas.

  • Boo.

    We need @dommyracer on this.

    In that kit.

  • Come with us. Tell them it's Christmas pre-sales work.

    And then we promise to buy loads of cheese from you.

  • Good to have Tom joining us. Welcome Tom.

  • What a poetic description, a lot to live up to!
    I'm in.

  • Got to be at a friend's for lunch at 1pm so may come for a bit and turn back at some point. Must negotiate pass first though.

  • Will meet you at Bentalls. I'll be there from 8.50.

  • Am coming. Will wear something silly

  • Beautiful morning, have a good ride.
