Here at team road.cc we can't think of a better way to spend an afternoon than a couple of coffees, a few nibbles, a bike ride, more coffee, bit of cake, a bit more riding then finish off with a few more snacks and the odd beer.
It just so happens that that's what we've got planned for the afternoon of Friday the 15th July as we're going to be laying on a little rideout from our Bath office for our readers and team road.cc club members.
Things are pretty relaxed here at road.cc so the plan is we'll meet up at about noon outside the office (we're in the left hand corner at the far end of the covered car park, our address is at the bottom of the page) where we'll have the coffee and cakes laid out.
The road.cc team will be there milling about and you'll be able to poke your head in and get a 'behind the scenes' look at how the website works and see what kit we've got knocking around for testing.
We'll be laying on two routes, one further and faster with the other a more relaxed, shorter jaunt around the lanes of Bath, Somerset and possibly Wiltshire - we haven't decided on the exact details yet.
Once we get back to Bath we'll supply more snacks and nibbles plus there has even been the odd beer knocking about in the past - you never know. We'll have a chat and mingle, as you do while waiting for the all important road.cc Schwagaway where we dish out some free cycling goodies.

To get your name down you need to register here. Oh yeah, did we mention all of this is free?
See you on the 15th.
With 20 years of road cycling and over 150,000 miles in his legs it's safe to say Stu is happiest when on the bike whatever the weather. Since writing his first review for road.cc back in 2009 he has also had a career in engineering including 3D-CAD design and product development, so has a real passion for all of the latest technology coming through in the industry but is also a sucker for a classic steel frame, skinny tyres, rim brakes and a damn good paintjob.
His fascination with gravel bikes is getting out of control too!
