North London Dirt Ride
The Ride Journal are organising a on/off road self supported ride on Saturday 21st of July. It's a 68 mile loop up through North East London taking in the back roads, dirt tracks and gravel paths.
"It is not a hand-holding sportive, you won’t have signs telling you which way to go, a table full of banana halves and an oversized t-shirt to collect at the end..." - A GPX file will be sent out to follow the route by.
Meeting for a coffee at Rapha Spitalfields and rolling out in groups of 10, you'll also be greeted with a beer from Pressure Drop and Beavertown breweries upon return.
There are is also a prize draw from brands such as Condor Cycles, Brooks England, Brother Cycles and Rapha which you enter by having a card stamped at a hidden brevet control along the route.
The event is being organised to raise money for the New St Mary's Centre in Stoke Newington (that houses amongst other things, the Hackney Night Shelter, the Hackney Migrant Centre and the local foodbank). All profits from the event will go to them.
