All registered riders will be invited to join us for monthly supported group rides from Imber Court, Esher, Surrey. These rides are an excellent opportunity to practice riding in a bunch, meet your fellow riders, the HotChillee Ride Captains and HotChillee crew and ask any questions you may have. Check out the monthly ride calendar here.
The LONDON-PARIS 2018 is a multi stage endurance road cycling event consisting of flagged race sections with tempo riding between. The format allows for ample racing in the “Race” level groups (1 and 2), social tempo riding and interaction between the flagged sections with the “Ride” level groups (3, 4 and 5) more focused on completing the endurance nature of the event. The flagged race sections cover sprinting, climbing and over all time (general classification). Click here for further information about the competition.
The five groups based on both ability and experience. The actual speeds of the groups will be based on rider distribution, but will generally be as listed below:
Group 1: 30+ km/h
Group 2: 29 km/h
Group 3: 28 km/h
Group 4: 26-27 km/h
Group 5: 24-25 km/h
Each group will have approximately 60 cyclists and ride as a peloton. They are each supported by their own lead car, motorbike outriders (which manage the traffic in the UK and close the roads completely in France), mechanics van and medical support. Each group is also looked after by the HotChillee Ride Captains who are in radio contact with the support vehicles.
The flagged race sections cover sprinting, climbing and general classification (GC).
