Cyclists wanted! Ringcross Community Centre Foodbank

Fri 12 Mar 16:00 pm
Ringcross Community Centre, 60 Lough Rd, London, N7 8RH
Delivering essential supplies to local neighbourhood families

Ringcross Community Centre has been operating a large foodbank since the start of lockdown, and currently offers food and essentials to over 70 Islington households every week.

Islington Cycle Club have also offered assistance to the project, by arranging a food collection pickup from shops and supermarkets, often using a cargo e-bike.

Goodgym have offered to assist with delivering shopping parcels to various households around Islington (no more than 2 miles from the community centre).

Would you like to be a foodbank cycle courier?

All deliveries will be prepared in advance, with addresses and contact phone numbers attached to the parcels.

You will need:

A bike

A method for carrying pretty heavy stuff

This can be pannier bags, or a large rucksack (12 ltrs or larger). Most deliveries would be the size of 4 shopping bags of items, so a larger capacity bag will make your trip easier. A few spare bags will be available to borrow if required.

There are 3 large bags available to borrow if you are without a suitable rucksack!

Some sort of map

Google maps on your phone would be fine.

Confidence when cycling on London streets

We are looking for safe cyclists! Steady, controlled and predictable cycling is preferred over speedy deliveries!

Any questions, feel free to contact Simon Fitzmaurice (Islington Trainer).

Ringcross Bike Gang!

Fri 19 Feb
Report written by Simon Fitzmaurice

5 Goodgym cyclists joined us for our weekly cycle delivery task with the Ringcross Community Foodbank this Friday. Along with Marie Laure, Louis and John, we were joined by super cyclist Jay, who pedalled all the way from Rainham to help us! Between our crew, we were able to provide a full week of shopping, food and essential supplies to 12 different households across the Islington borough, assisting those who do not have the means or the ability to visit the centre. We were also fortunate enough to enjoy some extended sunlight throughout our task (something we have been missing for the last few months!).

Thanks to all those involved this week. Sign up here if you would like to join us next Friday!

Wonderful work folks!

Strength plan for feet and ankles

Sun 28 Feb 18:45 pm
Your Street, Your City, Your Postcode
Get more out of those pins!

We put heaps of force through our body when we exercise and many runners will have had some experience of pain and injury during their training days.

I know some at GG and other clients I have trained have expressed the frustration and pain off shin splints etc so as part of a fitness routine I have put together a few ideas here that can help prevent it as well as assist with rehab on the way out of it.

These are not to guarantee that bouts of injury will never happen again, but they are to help strengthen those muscles that we take for granted every time we lace up and to help offset injury probability.

In most cases such injuries and pains are likely be from too much too soon, lack of recovery from bigger sessions as well as gait and trainer issues so if you are prone to or experiencing injury do consult a physio or medic first and build up slowly with the least intense methods first.

Session can be found here https://youtu.be/3aotfg-E120

You probably know but just a reminder …doing these once or twice will not set you up for stronger conditioned lower legs for life. They need to be incorporated into a regular pattern of activity. Let’s keep this one live for February and aim for aspects of the plan at least twice a week

Let me know if you have any questions ; - )
