HotChillee pop up

10 June 2014



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.



Three hours later and the groups start to come back in, bubbling with the satisfaction of cycling at it’s best, the sun always helps. Time for some more in depth conversations about the RCE bikes and their history. As always the BMC Impec generates a discussion . “Built entirely in Switzerland”, “Hand made by machines”. Someone couldn’t resist and we wave goodbye to the beautiful Impec. Time to find another showstopper for our next Pop Up – The Grand Depart.
