Hello everybody,

Happens so that I will be spending two weeks during Christmas and New-Year in North London Muswell Hill area and would love to do some miles while there. If the weather is not too bad, maybe try to do the Rapha 500 challenge?

I was wondering if any fellow-weenies are from around that area? Any group rides from there North-London? Anyone else thinking about Rapha 500?

Also all suggestions where to rent a decent or half-decent road bike in North London are very welcome or maybe somebody even has a spare/winter etc bike to rent out for the period?

Cheers,
Lars

Depending on the distance you like to cover, my advice would be to head out to the Chilterns, which is my new stomping ground. Lots of nice countryside, quiet in terms of traffic and good road surface. Top cycling. I found a few routes by searching other Strava users, filtering on 60mi+, 1000m+, etc, and then downloaded them to my Garmin.

Alternatively, the Rapha Café in Soho do a Saturday morning ride, topped and tailed by two seasoned pro riders, that usually covers 70 odd miles out in either Surrey or the North Downs. Usually a nice bunch of guys to join. You need to join their Twitter feed to register for it.
