Easy pace but several hills. Distance: 40km, Elevation Gain: 350m

Join us on this Any One Any Bike urban exploration ride of North London, covering some of the city's best known parks and hills to give great views of the ever changing city skyline, along with a range of architectural styles that give the numerous 'villages' in the area their distinctive styles.

We'll be taking trails, cycleways and quiet urban roads where possible so this event is open to all abilities, though north London has some hills but with great views in return. Climbs will be restricted to trails and quiet streets for safety however and we will wait for everyone to catch up at their own pace at the top of each climb.

The route will finish at the OutdoorLads Picnic & Social at Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens so, although we won't have a lunch break during the ride, there will be plenty of time for refreshments with ODL members from the other events running on the day.

It should be noted that the trail surface in Hampstead Heath and the Parkline Walk is unpaved and quite bumpy (see event pictures) and will be muddy in the damp. This event is therefore not suitable for bikes with slick or narrow tyres. Road hybrids or road bikes with cyclocross tyres should be fine.
