The Fright Ride
The third running our our popular Fright Ride (see report and photos from the last fright ride), specially for Halloween.
Join us if you dare on Halloween, Friday 31st October, for the Fourth Wheeler’s Fright Ride. We meet at Indo’s Pub, Whitechapel Road (opposite the Mosque) at 9.30pm for a 10pm departure.
Once again, we avoid the living of London and glide through the eerie alleyways of the City and on to Hyde Park.
After hearing about Death Tree and the sinister tale of the Tyburn Tree, we pause for refreshment on Edgware Road then head North ascending Swain’s Lane to reach Highgate Village after midnight.
Then it’s a quick descent back to Farringdon and visit an all-night diner finishing the ride after 2.00am.
Hopefully the strange incident that took place last year will not re-occur.
Wheeler’s members have guest spots at various locations en-route to describe ‘strange goings on’.
Some construction work in the City may disrupt our smooth progress, but a new incident may be observed, following some information from D.I. Nabb concerning the Curious Case of Chichester Rents.
Please wear hi-viz, have lots of bright lights on your bike to warn off evil, and take extra care cycling in dark alleys and sections across Hampstead Heath at midnight.

Upcoming rides & events
Our rides are highlighted by "RIDE". You don't have to be a member to join in and we're also always looking for new ride ideas. Contact our Rides Co-ordinator for further information.
There is no need to register beforehand for a ride unless this is specifically stated, most rides are "turn up and go".
Please note that for train assisted rides we often cannot publish times until about 2 weeks beforehand because of the need to check engineering works. Also sometimes our ride leaders do have to change dates/times/routes at reasonably short notice. Generally this website will be up to date and also details will be sent out to our email groups, but if in doubt contact the ride leader or our rides co-ordinator to check arrangements.
