Friends Wanted around Leith Hill / London!
I got a mate of mine into mountain biking just over a year ago, built him a 456 and he’s definately got the bug – just bought a Stumpy FSR (singlespeed next!).
Anyway, he lives in London and generally rides on his own around the Leith Hill area. I keep telling him to hook up with friendly like-minded STWers, but he rarely uses a computer, so I’m sticking a note up for my ‘billy no-mates’ pal.
Does anyone fancy inviting a really good bloke out to join a ride or two?

If he fancies skills training or guided ride (graded to ability, small groups) he is very welcome to book with http://www.allbikedup.com
I’m sure there will be plenty of free offers too. There a quite a number of regular groups, including night rides.
Nirvana in Westcott do regular rides that you can join in on (maybe not for complete novices), as do Cycleworks.Posted 9 years agotwiglet_monsterMember
Forgive the obvious question – does he actually want to ride with others?
Everyone’s different 🙂
If he is up for some company, then one approach is to ask some folks nicely in Peaslake on a sunday if he can join them. I’ve had riders join us in this way and it means that he can do as much or as little as he likes.
If he’s after something more organised then above suggestions are great. Also have a look at Sussex Muddy@rse. Mostly riding out of Sussex with regular forays to the North Downs and beyond. Really friendly rides where no-one gets left behind.

Does he like beer?
If so, maybe he can apply to join the Soft Southern Shandy Drinkers, and maybe come out for a ride and a Swift Half.
We are an elite group; the entry requirements are very stringent…
You must love biking, having a good laugh, and know how to enjoy yourself!
Dunno when our next ride is planned for, though. I dare say it’ll be up here when it does happen, though. Keep yer eyes peeled.Posted 9 years ago
Thanks all. The STW collective are top people as ever. I’ll get him to look at this thread and he can make contact etc.
If any of you are ever ‘oop-North’ and want to be shown some nice routes in the Peaks of N Wales, give me a shout and I’ll be delighted to oblige.
