We have made the decision to move over to a more modern way of communicating using Discord. As a result, all of the forums have now been made read-only. Please click on this link https://discord.gg/XYJgnUs to open Discord in a browser. Mobile and desktop apps are also available which are really easy to use. These can be downloaded from the App stores.

We won't be sending out invites to the new server as it shouldn't be necessary. Just follow the link and create yourself as a user. Please use a name that will help us to recognise you. Nicknames are fine if that is one we all know but just initials are not ideal as that doesn't help.

Any problems let Dave B or Mark G know and we will try and sort it out.

We are now working on a new website which should be ready over the next couple of months.

Hope you enjoy the more collaborative approach. This should mean we need less WhatsApp Groups

Ride London

I get loads of emails via the website, many of which are spam or I just ignore them. This one may be of interest.



Hi there,

My name is Annie and I’m writing you from Village Aid with an exciting opportunity. Village Aid is the beak District’s international development charity and we work to empower communities in West Africa to break the cycle of poverty. We have 14 charity places for this year’s RideLondon-Surrey 100 mile cycling event, and we’re looking for some keen cyclists to fill those spaces!

Since the ballot has now closed, I wondered if there might be anyone in your cycling club still looking for a place in this year’s event.

This year the event is taking place on August 4th, 2019 and we are looking for passionate and enthusiastic cyclists for the Village Aid team. If you know of any cyclists who might be interested I’d love to hear from you!
Cyclists can conquer the mighty miles between London and Surrey knowing that every mile they cycle and every penny they raise means that Village Aid can continue working to support the communities that need us most. The places are absolutely free to those interested in cycling to support Village Aid, we just ask for a minimum sponsorship of £750. We’ll be there to support cyclists every step of the way with tips and tricks, fundraising resources, motivational advice and a friendly smile.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this quick message and please feel free to reach out to me via email, or you can always give me a call at 01629 814434.

Best wishes,
