CYCLING ENTHUSIAST? JOIN THE CLUB

cycling

 

The remits of most sporting clubs are self-explanatory – even to the layperson. Football clubs tend to enter leagues and compete against other teams; golf clubs also have competitive tournaments but are just as likely to be the scene for a gentle game between friends. And so it goes on for cricket, rugby… But what about a cycling club? Many exist in London, but where are they based and what do they do? If you are interested in joining a London cycle club, read on for examples of some of the huge variety of organizations in the city.

BATH ROAD CLUB – Based in Hayes, the Bath Road Club claims to be one of the oldest cycling clubs in the world. Open to every age group and with all aspects of cycling involved, the club’s events include the Hilly 31 time trial, the National series Junior Road Race and – between April and September – weekly 9.2 mile time trials. There is also a Sunday Club and frequent social rides and functions.

THE HARINGEY CYCLING CLUB – Primarily a youth development club, with a focus on developing potential cycling and triathlon talent from age 11 upwards, Haringey does nonetheless welcome all ages. The club offers opportunities for racing, leisure riding, off-road riding, track racing and time trials, and organized weekly Sunday rides.

HILLINGDON CYCLING CLUB –Hillingdon Cycling Club organises weekly Sunday training rides and also has an active under 23 squad, which trains every Saturday if not racing. The club has two British Cycling coaches on its roster, providing the young squad with bespoke training programs, race selection and guidance on equipment selection and maintenance.

HOUNSLOW AND DISTRICT WHEELERS – This club’s schedule is jam packed with events and activities to suit every taste. There are training rides of varying paces and a full programme of road races, time trials and Audux rides. As well as the annual Club Dinner, the Wheelers’ social calendar also includes tours throughout the year to destinations such as Majorca, Ghent and the Pyrenees.

IMPERIAL RACING TEAM – Describing itself as a cycle racing club, Imperial welcomes membership on the proviso that members race or support its racing program. One of a number of clubs to practice out of Hillingdon Cycle Circuit, Imperial Racing Team’s aim is ‘to race, to promote racing across the sport and promote races for others’.

PEDAL POWER – With its base at Finsbury Park basketball courts, Pedal Power is the cycling club for teenagers and adults with learning disabilities. Set up by Jo Roach in 2004 at Eastway Cycle Track (moving to Finsbury Park to make way for the 2012 Olympic Games), the club lists specialized bikes for a range of disabilities, qualified cycling instructors and games to improve cycling skills among its features.

RAPHA CYCLE CLUB – This is not your traditional cycling club, but it takes the sport just as seriously as the rest. Rapha in fact produces cycling clothing and accessories and there is a network of these branded cycle clubs across the world in San Francisco, New York, Osaka, Sydney and here in London on Clerkenwell Road. Besides housing a fully fitted shop and a trendy café, the club is also the base for regular rides and screens races and other cycling related media.

TWICKENHAM CYCLING CLUB – The club states that when formed in 1893 it was ‘founded with the primary objective of promoting both social and competitive events’. Over 120 years on it seems to be fulfilling that objective – with a series of morning and evening rides throughout every week, regular social catch-ups and a comprehensive program of racing and challenge events.

If you are cycling enthusiast then you can take confidence from the above – with so many London cycling clubs in existence you are clearly in good company.

 

And if you need some fashionable clothes to wear while you are cycling, consider these…

Save The Earth, One Bambooee At A Time!

bambooeeYou can help save the earth by using less paper towels each day! Yeah, that’s pretty obvious, right? Well, you don’t just stop using paper towels, cold turkey. Just switch to Bambooee!

So, what the heck is a Bambooee you ask?

Bambooee is a reusable bamboo towel that replaces generic paper towels that helps reduce the 3,000 tons of paper towel waste people generate each day! They are thicker and more absorbent then even the “luxury” paper towels and Bambooee can be washed and reused over 100 times without losing integrity. Just one roll of Bambooee is equivalent to 286 standard paper towel rolls.

Just clean up your usual messes all day long and at the end of the day, toss it into the washing machine to be ready for the next mess in no time.

Here’s the commercial…

You can purchase Bamooee Towels on Amazon.com and www.bambooee.com

PACT Eco-Friendly, Organic Cotton Line of Clothing Basics

pact baby clothes

Lately, I’ve been obsessed with organic cotton. Especially when purchasing clothes for my new baby, who is expected to make an appearance shortly! So I was really excited to get a few baby clothing pieces from PACT, a super cool, eco-friendly, organic cotton line of basics for gals, guys and baby.

PACT is on a mission to make it easier for you to make a simple change in your life to make the world a better place. As PACT likes to say: You change your underwear, together we change the world.

Not only that, PACT is treating the world a little more kind this Earth Day (and year round!) by bringing eco-friendly socks, undies, and everyday basics to make you look good and feel good.

What is PACT all about?

  • Super soft organic cotton
  • Everyday essentials ethically manufactured to go easy on the environment
  • A design process followed from seed to shelf
  • Environmentally friendly packaging (even vegetable based ink)

With every purchase, you help PACT make a positive change in the world (it’s Earth Day everyday at PACT!).

Each season, PACT partners with a non-profit, all revolving around empowering people to make a lasting positive change in their community. For spring/summer 2014, PACT is going all the way back to the source – their farmers. In India, PACT organic cotton is produced by Chetna Organic, a cooperative of small family farms. PACT will be supporting a variety of social projects in cotton growing villages to build strong, vibrant communities.

I’m really excited to have discovered PACT and I hope you are too. Their products are well-made, eco-friendly and affordably priced from $8 – $40.
