Hub Vélo + Rapha Women’s 100km Ride

To coincide with this year’s Rapha Women’s 100 – an annual celebration of women’s cycling where riders around the world complete 100 km together on the same day – the Hub Vélo women are organising a group ride on Saturday, 15th September from our base in Hackney, London.

We will be meeting at Hub Vélo at 8:00 for coffee (shop opening time tbc) before heading out to the rolling hills and lanes of Essex for a 100km ride. There will be a café stop just at the halfway point, and we will then ride back in to Rapha Spitalfields to join up the other women’s rides finishing there for free drinks, cake and to celebrate. The route will be posted here in advance.

This will be a no-drop ride and is ideal for riders with some group riding experience who would like to complete the Women’s 100 at a social pace. We are initially planning two groups riding at ~25kph, though may be able to add further groups based on interest and experience levels. 

We recommend riders should be using clip-in pedals and be comfortable riding in a group. However, if you are relatively new to cycling, group rides or don’t ride with clip-in pedals, just drop us an note before and we’ll see what we can arrange! This isn’t a beginners ride as such, but would be an excellent and friendly step up if you’ve ridden shorter distances before and are looking to complete a 100km ride.

Please sign up for the ride via the Rapha event platform here (filter for rides in the United Kingdom and then look for ‘Hub Vélo + Rapha London W100 Ride’):

Feel free to get in touch with us with any questions in advance on:

Look forward to seeing lots of women out on the 15th!

As with all rides, we ask that you bring two water bottles, some food, two inner tubes, a road bike in good working order and wear cycling clothing. You should also carry some food, some money (for a taxi or drinks and treats at the stop and the end) and your phone in case of emergencies, and if the weather is looking changeable then a rainproof jacket is always a good idea. If your bike needs a service, you know where to come!
