Up early for our first ‘Pop Up’ of the summer. Destination is the HotChillee training ride six at Imber Court in East Molesey. What a beautiful morning. Fuelled by coffee we get all the bikes set up by 7am in time for the first riders. All the groups gather for the starting words of wisdom from Sven Thiele, the Hotchillee founder, and Bull, David Bryant, the lead ride captain. Things are getting serious now with only one more training ride before the The London to Paris event at the end of June. They couldn’t have had a better day for some serious riding.
We took the opportunity to chat to some of the riders about how the process for buying and selling second hand bikes through RCE works. As always people are enthused by the service and amazed at the quality and price of the pre-owned bikes we are selling.
Off they all go in the six groups, smiling with anticipation of the awesome ride ahead of them. We’re jealous but also happy to hang around and talk to some of our customers who live locally and drop by to say hello.
