Sigma Sport Rides

Sigma Sport invite you to join us on our rides. Each ride takes on a different route, making these guided rides great for training, discovering new roads and meeting other riders. Each ride will begin and end at the Sigma Sport store located in Hampton Wick. FREE to join, you can also join our Strava club to find out about new rides, routes and get exclusive offers and content.

Before attending our rides we ask you to familiarise yourself with our hand signals guide, to ensure the safety of both yourself and your fellow riders.

Looking for a weekday group ride? We often have rides leaving our Hampton Wick store at 9.30am on Tuesdays or Friday. Please check our rides calendar, below, for information on our next ride.*

May Challenge Ride - 28th May 2017 - 103.2km

Date: Sunday 28th May 2017
Time: 08:30am
Where: Sigma Sport, Hampton Wick

**Sorry, our Challenge Ride has reached maximum capacity. Please follow us on Twitter and Facebook to find out about future rides.**

For our Challenge Ride for May, we will be joined by none other than the industries leading eyewear manufacturer, Oakley. They will be giving you the opportunity to demo a pair of their latest models of sporting glasses.

The ride heads south of Woking for a rolling 103.2 kilometre (64.5 mile) loop which features 929 metres (3047 feet) of elevation.

A lumpy route, this month's ride heads to Pennypot and in Farnham, where it does a loop, before heading east towards Shackleford. From there the ride features rolling roads north up to Cobham. As with all our rides, we will be finishing at the Foresters Pub next to the store, where you will be able to enjoy a 'recovery' drink.

There will be three different groups covering the same route. These will vary in speed to cater for all fitness abilities. The rides will be lead by store staff and will leave at 8:30AM on Sunday May 28th from outside the Sigma Sport store in Hampton Wick. We aim to be back between 12 and 1:30PM depending on the speed of the group.

Make sure you get yourself down to the store at 8.30 to grab your demo pair and free coffee for what's going to be a great scenic route.

A map and profile of the route can be viewed or uploaded to a compatible GPS device using this link.

Group one will be aiming to average around 19-20mph (31-32kph). 20mph is an average speed so there will be times when the speed is actually higher than this so you will need a decent level of fitness and the ability to ride in a group is essential!


Group two will aim to average between 17-18mph. Again this is an average speed so speeds will be in excess of 18mph in places. You will need to have had good group riding experience again for this group and will need a good level of fitness to complete the distance.


Group three will be aiming to average around 16-17mph. You will still need to have experience of group riding and sitting on another rider’s wheel but this ride will endeavour not to drop anyone in the group, within reason.


 

Group 1 will set off first, followed by group 2 and group 3, so if you find that the first group is too fast for your taste you can always sit up and wait for the next group to come along.

The rides will be organised and lead by our 'Ride Captains', staff and friends of the store who have good group riding experience. The ride will leave at 8:30AM from outside the Sigma Sport store in Hampton Wick and will aim to be back between 12.00PM and 1.30PM, depending on the speed of the group. If you have any questions please contact callum.clarke@sigmasport.co.uk.

June Women's Ride - 4th June 2017 - 53.5km

Date:  4th June 2017 
Time: 08:30am
Where: Sigma Sport, Hampton Wick

We invite women (and their partners) to join us on Sunday 4th June for a ride out to East Horsley.

The route will be 53.5 kilometres (33.4 miles) in length and will total around 336 metres (1250 feet) of elevation. The ride will start outside the Sigma Sport store and head out through Esher, Oxshott and East Horsley, where we will begin a loop round to Ripley. The route then heads towards West Byfleet, where the rolling roads take the riders back towards Weybridge and Walton on Thames, before the riders are greeted with a flat run back through Sunbury on Thames to the store.

There will be two groups covering the same route, varying only in speed to cater for different preference and ability.

A map and profile of the route can be viewed or uploaded to a compatible GPS device using this link.

Group one is ideal for our more experienced riders and will aim to average between 15/18mph. This is an average speed so speeds can be in excess of 18mph in places. You should be able to ride safely in a group and will need a good level of fitness.

Group two will be a more social paced group, aiming to average around 12/15mph. Some experience of riding in a group would be good but it is not essential. This ride will endeavour not to drop anyone.

Group 1 will set off first, followed by group 2, so if you find that the first group is too fast for your taste you can always sit up and wait for second group to come along.

The rides will be organised and lead by our 'Ride Captains', staff and friends of the store who have good group riding experience. The ride will leave at 8:30AM from outside the Sigma Sport store in Hampton Wick and will aim to be back between 10.30AM and 11.30AM, depending on the speed of the group. If you have any questions please contact callum.clarke@sigmasport.co.uk.
