John Forbes Consulting ride

Join "Flambo" Forbes for "40 or so miles of varying lumpiness", from Bermondsey through Crystal Palace and out to Kent and back.

 
 

John Forbes leads a property ride once a month, starting from Bermondsey in South London and picking up more riders at Cafe Paradou in Crystal Palace (as the Cadence cycle shop has closed its cafe) before heading out to Kent. The routes tend to be organised to include at least one lung-busting climb, during which you can enjoy the merry sound of John's cackling laughter. The finish is back at Crystal Palace for lunchtime refreshments.

"Our next ride will be on 26th April, so hopefully fine weather."

"We meet at Caffe Paradiso on Shad Thames from 8.30am for a coffee and a croissant. 9am prompt departure. We pick up in Crystal Palace at about 9.45 for those from that part of the world. The rides are 40 or so of hilly miles from Crystal Palace into the North Downs getting back to Crystal Palace for some lunch / chatting. Although some of the hills are challenging, we wait for everyone at the top (and bottom)."
