Weekday Rides

Time: Meet at 9:15am for a 9:30am departure
Where: Sigma Sport, Hampton Wick

Looking for a weekday group ride? We're running a series of friendly rides every Tuesday and Friday morning, leaving our Hampton Wick store at 9:30am.

Tuesday Rides: A mixed group covering around 30-35 miles with an average speed of 16/17mph. 

Friday Women's Rides: Male partners and friends are also very welcome, but the women are in charge! This group aim to cover around 30 miles with an average of 15/16mph.

Both rides will be around 2 hours in length and will usually head out from the store into the Surrey lanes or towards Windsor and back, so features flat to rolling terrain. The rides will be lead by one or two ride captains from the store who will help set the pace and try and keep everyone together. 

Weekday rides are FREE to join, there is no registration required for this ride, although you must accept our terms and conditions before taking part on these rides.

We look forward to riding with you.  

April Social Ride - Supported by Njinga Cycling - 2nd April 2017 - 61.6km

Date: Sunday 2nd April 2017 
Time: 08:30am
Where: Sigma Sport, Hampton Wick

 

At the beginning of each month we will be organising a social ride to compliment our Challenge Rides. These rides will cover a shorter distance of around 60km and will be run at a more social pace than our more difficult challenge rides.

This month the ride will be lead and supported by Ride Captains from Njinga Cycling who will help set the pace and try and keep everyone together. Njinga Cycling is a cycle training and performance lab located just round the corner from our shop. They focus on transforming road cyclists of all abilities into stronger, fitter and more efficient riders. So here's your opportunity to ride alongside the experts and gain an insight into how you can ride faster.

The ride will be 61.6 kilometres (38 miles) in length and will total around 755 metres (2477 feet) of elevation. The ride will start outside the Sigma Sport store and head out through Esher before climbing on to the Epsom Downs and past its famous race course. From here it's on to Headley, down through "Little Switzerland" and Westhumble before a short but steep (20%) climb out of the valley up Chappel Lane. We then head back through Fetcham and Oxshott before returning through Esher and finish back to the store.

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 2nd April from outside the Sigma Sport store in Hampton Wick. We aim to be back between 10 and 11:00AM depending on the speed of the group.

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

The ride will be split into two groups:

A slower group, averaging 14-15mph, which is perfect for anyone new to the sport, or even for those who have been riding for a while but haven’t ridden in a group before and would like to gain a bit more experience.

A faster group, averaging 16-17mph. This is ideal for those who are looking for a simple, social ride but still get home in time for an early lunch.

Sigma Sport Demo Day & Challenge Ride - 9th April 2017 - 88.5km

Date:  9th April 2017 
Time: 08:30am
Where: Denbies Wine Estate, Dorking
Price: £10

For the first time, we're taking our popular monthly Challenge Ride to a new location, with the event starting and finishing at Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking.

As part of our Sigma Sport Demo Day we are offering a Challenge Ride on Sunday 9th April. This ride consists of a 2-3 hour loop around some of the best lanes and climbs Surrey has to offer, supported by the fantastic HotChillee Ride Captains.

The route will be 88.5 kilometres (55 miles) in length and will total around 1589 metres (5216 feet) of elevation. The ride will start out at Denbies Wine Estate and head outs into the Surrey lanes, taking in climbs including the formidable Leith Hill.

There will be three different groups covering the same route. These will vary in speed to cater for all fitness abilities. The rides will leave at 8:30AM on both days from Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking. We aim to be back between 12 and 1:30PM depending on the speed of the group.

What's included in your £10 ticket:

  • A place on our guided Challenge Ride in the Surrey Hills
  • Gift bag, valued at £20
  • Food and drink - before and after your ride
  • Screening of Paris - Roubaix

This ticket is for those who would like to ride their own bikes on our Challenge Ride, and don't require one of our demo bikes. If you would like to book a demo bike, please click here for more information.

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 finally group 3. This means that should you find yourself in a group that is too fast for your taste you can always sit up and wait for the next group on the road to come along.
