November 1st: Day of the Dead Ride
Celebrate the Dia de Los Muertos in London with Hackney Bicycle Film Society as they start a new tradition in the London bike community. Their first Annual Day of the Day Bike Ride invites participants to come dressed in your “Calavera” or “Calaca” (skeleton) wear (time for face paints!).
The ride take splace in the streets of Hackney and East London. It starts at Stamford Hill entrance of the Abney Cemetery in N16 0LH at 8pm on Friday 1st of November.
The Dia De Los Muertos is certainly not a morbid holiday, its a celebration and a chance to give respect to those who have passed. It is particularly celebrated in Mexico.

November 16th: Brick Lane to Cambridge
A 62 mile ride to Cambridge, that leaves near Brick Lane. The ride starts at 9am. To take part, simply add your name on the LFGSS forum thread. As anyone who’s ridden to Cambridge before will know, this can be a really beautiful route and it isn’t too tough.
