WOW WHAT A YEAR. 2020 has been a time of global epidemics, worldwide upheaval, a time to reflect , a time to get fit and thankfully a time to ride bikes. On that note Hackney GT has sprung back into life with new product, new designs and new dreams. As the ends draws near we want to again say thank you to all the supporters. Going forward we are excited for all that we have forthcoming and the for the pleasure of doing something we enjoy everyday.
AS A LITTLE WAY OF SAYING THANKS WE HAVE CREATED A VERY SPECIAL LONDON 'GRAVEL' LOOP RIDE FOR ALL AND IT REALLY IS GOOD. 43 MILES/70KM IT'S A FULL DAY OUT.
Ride it over the holidays at your pleasure and if you care to post an instagram pic tagged with @hackneygt and #londongravelloop we wil give a jersey away early jan for what we deem the best image.
The ride with GPS map is here for all to download and with plenty of cue points
Taking in 5 royal parks, 2 palaces, Windmills and wombles, The Thames Path , a gothic cemetery, The West End , Rein deer (x 2), Central London's highest point, Football stadiums ( x 2) and historic pubs, what's there not to like? Its is about 60% gravel and off road with a little mud. The tarmac is nearly all back streets with a only a small amount of main roads along the iconic Kings Rd and Teddington High Street and because its a loop you can start and finish wherever you like.
