Aussie in the UK looking for the local Coluzzi bunch ride

justinkokejustinkoke Posts: 4
So I have just moved to the UK and my bike will be landing in a few weeks, so by that stage I will be crawling up the walls to go for a ride.

I usually ride the Coluzzi in Sydney. It is a bunch ride (30+ riders) covering about 70km on weekday and 100km on a Saturday, averaging speeds between 35-45kmph.

Is there anything similar in or around London? I am currently living around Northwood (Middlesex).

Any help in finding something like this locally, or suggestions on local clubs would be most helpful.

Cheers,

Justin

    momentarily from the herd and thinks for himself.

    Hillingdon circuit would probably be your best bet. Hillingdon CC is one club that runs there, but I've been away from that area for so long now that I wouldn't know who to recommend getting in touch with. I'm sure someone local will be along soon...
  • Hello mate - welcome to the UK!

    I can't help with Coluzzi-style rides (I'm not sure there's anything in the UK that's quite that up itself :) ) but if you ever find yourself in Bath come and ride some West Country lanes with VC Walcot and/or the Future crew.

    What brings you to Blighty?

    Hey JohnJohn,

    Yeah, not really up for the 'attitude' more just the pace.

    Jen, has secured a fellowship position here for 12 months, so she gets to compare the NHS to NSW Health :)

    Myself? Just taking sometime off at the moment, will probably try and find a job in the next month or so to keep me occupied.

    If we are up Bath way, I will let you know!
