Summer Solstice Ride 2021!

Annual Summer Solstice Ride (2nd Social Distance Edition)
Thursday 24th June Leaving anytime between 15:00 and 17:30
Target return time between 20:00 – 20:30

Hello All –The annual Solstice run down to the top of Ditchling Beacon to celebrate the longest day (it is actually the 21st) is now in its 6th year. After the success of last year’s format of riding in groups of up to 6 riders we are going to repeat it this year.

THIS IS NOT A RACE

Plan in Brief. 

  • Groups of 2 to 6 (6 max) (Chat with your mates and form a group, or sign up and we can help and create groups)
  • Follow the supplied route. Download to GPS here>>
  • Groups must come past the shop to trigger the strava segment which will allow each rider to compete against themselves in a non-competitive non-race manner.
    (Important – RIDE AWAY FROM SHOP BEFORE STARTING GPS, THEN RIDE BACK TOWARDS SHOP, in a non-competitive manner, TO TRIGGER THE STRAVA SEGMENT)
  • If you come up to another group please do not join and merge, let them through and past.
  • Photo evidence of a socially distanced group selfie at the top of Ditchling Beacon must be added to your Strava ride.
  • Please come up with a team name – And post it in your Strava Ride Title when uploading.
  • PLEASE WhatsApp me privately with your team name and riders names
  • If you do not have a team, message me with your average speed and I’ll put you into the mix.
  • Rules and timings etc are loose and it is a ‘Just for fun’ ride.


FOOD AND DRINK AFTER

The difference this year is we’re allowed to use the shop after the ride.

  • Drop off a ruck sack in the shop beforehand with warm jumper/jacket to use to stay warm after the ride.
  • Ice cold beers will be available at the shop.
  • FOOD We suggest each individual team clubs together and orders a Deliveroo specific to their team. There will be staff in the shop to sign for it and keep it (Relatively) warm until your arrival. ENSURE YOUR TEAM NAME IS IN THE DELIVEROO ORDER DETAILS.
