Look mum no hands!


Sunday saw Old St. swell with cyclists in the early morn and late afternoon. Over 300 riders took on the Islington CC's Great Escape Audax to travel 200km via Great Bardfield and Great Dunmow. Our favourite #TGEAudax snaps were awarded #lmnh Giro caps. Take a look at our selection...

"Early on a May morning, more than 300 cyclists from across London (and beyond!), set out on Islington Cycling Club’s Great Escape audax, east and north into Essex. Now in its third year, The Great Escape was again a sold out event, thanks to the efforts of 30+ volunteers. Many came for the quiet and picturesque route, the friendly, welcoming and chilled out atmosphere, some for the challenge of cycling 200km. Many might come back in 2017 for these reasons, but most will come back for Lorna’s out-of-this-world flapjacks - hands down the highlight of the event! I am ashamed to say I didn’t eat any, so definitely need to enter next year.

Islington Cycling Club was formed in 2013, aiming to be the friendliest and most welcoming cycling club in London, and now has more than 500 members. As an all-inclusive club, Islington CC offers rides and events for cyclists of all abilities."

- Orestis Mavroudis-Chocholis, Islington CC Membership Manager


It's always a pleasure to host the Great Escape at LMNH Old Street. Seeing the hoard of riders on in the morning, and welcoming them back for beers and BBQ is always a pleasure.
We're already looking forward to next year.
