In the way that Paris – Roubaix doesn’t visit Paris, this route no longer visit Fairoaks, as the cafe doesn’t open on Sundays. However, as we discovered on our winter ride there, the Heather Farm Cafe is an excellent alternative (and proved a blessing as we sheltered from a horrendous storm that appeared from nowhere that day!). We think we are due a bit of sunshine too and everyone who rode that day commented that it should prove to be an ideal summer route. So, make sure you’re there on Sunday 13th August!
Just turn up at 9am at the Polish War Memorial (A40 Ruislip / Northolt) with the route downloaded on your device. To get the route you need to sign up (free – see button above to subscribe) and then you’ll have access to our routes via the members’ zone tab above (choose routes and rides).
We decide on the day as to how many groups we split into, it really depends on who turns up. The faster groups will usually do the longer of the two options with the aim of us all reaching coffee stops at similar times.
OPTION ONE: Fairoaks Flyer 78km
OPTION TWO: Fairoaks Flyer Further 82km
