Pearson Inside Out Gravel Series

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 52km route (42km gravel), 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 Wahoo team will also be at the start to help with downloads out on their bikes helping riders where required. The route is not marked and for those who are not digital yet, we will be offering the chance the first 30 riders to borrow a new Wahoo GPS for the ride when entering online. Riders who are not equipped with the digital route will be unable to follow the course. 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. The route will be supplied ahead of the event to download into GPS devices and phones using navigation apps.What is the Gent Wevelgem?Since 1934, Gent Wevelgem is frequently referred to as a ‘sprinters classic’, stemming from the flat terrain at the end of the race allowing for a final push to the finish line. However, wind and rain, along with multiple climbs and cobbled roads, means that this event is not for the faint-hearted.On the sportive there are multiple race routes so that cyclists of all experience levels can take part in the gruelling yet satisfying race. The long route drops into France on an undulating route. All three options include the Kemmelberg as the main climb on a route that features headwinds, cobbles, a couple of climbs & some gravel sections. The main challenge is battling the winds, this is a sportive to use your brain as well as your legs and share the work in groups - getting stick on your own in the wind can be a lonely ordeal.
