Nick Patow

Saturday Ride Coordinator

I joined Avanti in September 2015 having been riding locally with friends for many years. I quickly got the bug and became a near ever present Saturday rider through the 15/16 winter months, and its pretty much continued ever since.
Since joining the club I’ve ridden G2 and G3 Sunday rides, local (and not so local) sportive’s, time trials (including the 4up team TT on the Brands Hatch circuit), the Brighton Big Dog MTB race and completed a few 100 mile plus rides to the coast (Rye and Whitstable).
The Saturday rides 40 mile routes and early start work really well for those short on time, although there’s always the opportunity to have a coffee and chat when we roll back to Orpington. You can contact me on:

Founding member of GS Avanti in 2002, I have concentrated my efforts to uphold our mission statement – “Fun and friendship through cycling”.
Having cycled in many parts of the world, including Europe, Canada, USA, Israel, Australia, New Zealand, Cayman Islands and Bermuda, my cycling experience is very broad and varied, ideal for ensuring your time on two wheels in Kent, Surry and East Sussex will be both enjoyable and successful. As Avanti Time Trial Manager I can advise you on how to start in competition:
