The Pearson Inside Out Gravel Series consists of four organised gravel rides in south-west London, one for each season from April through to November. The object of the Pearson Inside Out Gravel Series is to introduce and enjoy the outstanding gravel riding that exists in and around London! We also aim to highlight the benefits of cycling to our mental wellbeing. Riding on gravel helps to immerse riders amongst natural environments, into cleaner air and on to quieter byways, providing great headspace and a wealth of comradery between fellow riders.
** We have taken the decision to postpone the Autumn edition of the Inside Out ride until 8th October in respect of the passing of Queen Elizabeth II. With popular support, we feel it is appropriate to take time to reflect on the days leading up to her funeral, and reschedule to a date more appropriate. We apologise for any inconvenience and will be in contact with current entrants to roll forward to the new date, refund or donate their entry to our charities. Our sincerest thanks for your understanding. Will Pearson. **
Book your spot today, your entry fee goes towards our two excellent charities.
Details:The route promises to introduce even the most experienced navigators to a ride which spans lesser know paths and tracks across SW London. A mixture of passable off-road and gravel tracks, interspersed by quieter roads to link to one another. The NEW 65km route, leaves Pearson Sheen store SW14 8AG where plentiful coffee and watering facilities are available. The route will have staging posts where you will be able to access refreshments and mechanical facilities supplied by our partner company, Sportive Breaks.
There will also be a roving mechanic for those in any difficulty on the route, a contact number will be provided in case of emergency. The ride finishes back at the store where our friends from Signal Brewery will be supplying light refreshments for everyone's well-deserved efforts.
The route is not marked, riders must navigate using GPS/phone mapping devices. Riders who are not equipped with the digital route will be unable to follow the course. The route will be supplied ahead of the event to download to all entrants.
The nearest train station to our Sheen store is Mortlake, two minutes away, and there is also extensive free parking in the surrounding roads for those arriving by car.
