Colliers Wood Station
Join for a Hill Training session drawing a whisk around the lumps of Wimbledon!
We will meet at Colliers Wood Station (it’s a straight shot from Clapham Common, just lots of bad drivers and narrow bike lanes so dangerous to roll in a group) for a prompt 0830 start. Hill training is an excellent way to improve your fitness on the bike. We’ll be cycling 52km round trim from Clapham Common and climbing just over 600m. We will wait for everyone at the top of each hill, regrouping before we tackle the next climb.
These climbs are each shorter in elevation than most of the Crystal Palace hills, but there are more of them. The roads have a moderate amount of traffic and there are some sharp turns, so it’s important we stay together as a group and that everyone with a GPS has the route up.
