    Isn't the Greenway still closed by the Olympic stadium? Not a great inconvenience if it is; head down canal to Bow roundabout, turn left.

  • yep, closed between marshgate lane and stratford until 2014

  • tempted by this...need to get clearance from mission control

  • Thought there would be more people up for this.

    Either way will be good.
    Large group = more hi-jinx and cans / Small group = better pace and less stopping(+Beckton Alps)

  • note to self:
    don't forget hip flask this time!

  • ^^ why whisky* of course!

    *for medicinal purposes

  • This could possibly be the smallest East yet.
    Home early then.

    Sunny but cold tomorrow.

  • The Greenway reopens today, so ignore what I said earlier in the thread. I'm still in; hangover dependent.

  • Is the route OK for Sunday best bikes or is it better to bring something less precious?

  • There is a few short gravelly sections but majority paved..
    so if it hasn't been raining too much in preceding days should be fine.

    On the other hand, I haven't been down the river path south side in a while, who knows what building shenanigans have been going on.

  • Thanks man, sounds good but I might have to bring another bike just for sick gravel skids.

  • Anybody got this?:

    130mm BCD 44t Messenger/RD chain ring
    (any similar 130/44t black ring considered)

    Needed for Tandem

    Thanks

  • I hope people wont mind if I turn up with a geared machine tomorrow?

  • Ah, I missed this thread, but I couldn't have made it tomorrow, anyway. Have fun!

    To all those deciding at the last minute: It's a lovely ride, go for it.

  • I hope people wont mind if I turn up with a geared machine tomorrow?

    Me too.

    My sons birthday so will just ride as far as the ferry then home for late lunch if that's ok
