All Roads lead to the Coy Carp in Harefield on Sunday 31st December, Ride or Rendezvous, but be there for the climax of the Festive 500 Challenge as the finishers get awarded their Roundels…

It’s the grand finale of our Festive 500 series of eight rides over the Festive Season. There are two route options at 64km and 67km and a social gathering and award ceremony 11km from the end at the Coy Carp Harefield.

We are all meeting up at the Coy Carp from about 12.30pm for a little get together to award the Roundels … a bite to eat, coffee and maybe a drink (there is not cafe stop). If you are not riding, then why not pop over for a social gathering? We estimate around 12.30pm onwards, see you there!

Sunday 31st December at 9am from the Polish War Memorial

OPTION ONE: Coy Carp Caper 64km

OPTION TWO: Coy Carp Added Caper 67km

You can choose on the day which route and group you ride in. We generally have several groups on the road, depending on how many people are riding, so it’s flexible and tailored to riders’ needs. The slowest group will generally wait for the slowest rider (or split into sub groups) but you should be able to manage 30kph on flat stretches with an average speed of around 22kph over the distance. Faster groups will be more speedy of course.

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).

As noted above, 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

There are loads of events happening in 2024, be part of the West London Scene
