Local Route Library
The quayside lanes and single-track paths of East London offer new and exciting ways of exploring the city that will seem unfamiliar to even the most long-serving of residents. With the help of our official ride leaders, we have collated a series of rides that take you around the city, across the Thames, and out to the home counties, showcasing what the city and its surroundings have to offer.

September 6: Women’s 100
Like our other Clubhouses, the Pop-Up will be gladly welcoming riders taking part in the Women’s 100 on September 6th, with the open plaza offering the perfect meeting and finishing place for a ride. With 100km routes provided and rewards for the finishers, the Pop-Up will be a hub for women’s cycling.
September 19-20: City Island Challenge
Rapha is challenging riders to put their route planning skills to the test and pass through a series of mandated checkpoints across the Docklands, sharing their adventure along the way. You can pass each checkpoint in any order, over one or two days, as long as they start and finish in the same location. There will be a commemorative prize for all finishers.
