Ride London – A special event to consider!

From one of our friends from the UK:

Wonder if you know about Ride London?  Dave and I did the Ride London 100 at the weekend- since the 2012 Olympics we have a 3 day cycling festival in London,  including pro World Tour road races and on the Sunday 24,000 people doing a 100 mile ride over closed roads right thru the city centre past all the major landmark buildings and out into the countryside, returning to finish in front of Buckingham Palace. It’s quite special, even if you live here.

If you or any of the Bees fancy it, first step is to enter the ballot which opens next week (August 7). You’ll hear if you have a place (you have about a 1 in 4 chance) in Feb 2018, and the ride date next year is July 29th so plenty of time to prepare. Entering the ballot commits you to nothing, you only make your decision when offered a place.

One more time: Can anyone help this guy out?

Hi Beez! I received the following note from a cyclist from the UK. If you do have a decent road bike that you can lend/rent out for just a day or two, please contact Tim – I know he would be so thankful and appreciative. I hope we can help our friends from the UK!!!

“An unusual request from me here in London, England. My brother Dave has qualified for the GB team (age group 60-65) for the world sprint duathlon championships in Penticton on 19th August. We’re trying to source a road bike locally for him. Mainly so that he does not have to bring his own from the UK and then transport it all around BC on his ensuing holiday. I offered to make contact with local cycling clubs to see if it might be possible to borrow or hire a suitable bike?

Dave needs a 56 or 58 cm road bike, carbon, preferably with carbon wheels. He’d need to pick up (Kelowna, Penticton) on Friday 18th latest, though we are in Kelowna a few days before, the race is about 45 min early on Saturday morning , and deliver it back Saturday afternoon/Sunday.

I know it’s a lot to ask, Dave and I are regular cyclists and take great care of our own road bikes, but just wondered if there is someone out there who’d let their pride and joy go for a short while.  Dave has competed in the world championships several times now- he’s not going to win it, but best placed so far has been 11th, which to be honest most of us would be pretty pleased with.

As it happens, we lived in Kelowna back in centennial year, 1967 and have wonderful childhood memories, so we will be returning for a good  look around after 50 years, and have rented a house for a week with a third brother and partners/family.”
