North London Dirt II
After the sell-out event last summer, North London Dirt II is back for another graveltastic event for 2019 – AND raise more money for the St Mary’s Community Centre N16. The entry price is the same too! Just £22
North London Dirt II features a brand new seventy (ish) mile route running out of North East London and taking in as many back roads, dirt tracks and gravel paths as the team have been able to fit in.
It is not a hand-holding sportive, there are no signs telling you which way to go, tables full of battered banana halves and an oversized t-shirt to collect at the end…
…You will enjoy mighty fine coffee (courtesy of the Rapha Spitalfields Clubhouse), a new and unique route AND a quality locally brewed beer waiting for you at the end.
Grind for charity!
NORTH LONDON DIRT is again raising funds for the New St Mary’s Centre in Stoke Newington (that houses amongst other things, the Hackney Night Shelter, the Hackney Migrant Centre and the local foodbank). Since the last event, funding is ALMOST there, and building has started, a real local success story!
If you’re interested in learning more, there’s some details here: stmaryscentren16.org
ALL of the proceeds from the event will go to this local charity.
We’ve decided on a no-refunds policy for this event. As it’s a fundraiser, we’d hope that people not making it on the day will be happy to sit back a feel good about making a donation either way.
To ride North London Dirt you’ll need a bike with tyres suitable for road AND off-road – bearing in mind you’ll be pushing it a bit with slick, narrow tyres on some of the dirt tracks. 32mm gravel or ‘cross tyres would be a good place to start.
Self Supported – Bring your own bananas
You will be totally self-supported, riding with everything you will need to finish a ride of this length – and we’d suggest carrying two spare tubes. A GPX and TCX file will be sent out a few days before the event to ticket holders, so you’ll have time to load-up your GPS. Don’t leave it at home as there will be no signage on course! So some kind of GPS / phone for navigation is essential.
Good riding, good coffee, good beer…
AND you’re doing your bit for charity. WIN WIN WIN!
Hope to see you at 8am for an 8.30am depart on SUNDAY 8th September 2019.
