    After claiming I can never do afterwork rides I think I can technically do Tuesday. But I am incredibly unfit atm so likely to slow you down. Also, 42mph winds according to BBC...

    Bit later than planned but here you go:

    ridewithgps.com/routes/8125282

    The bit on the A222 before you get on the A20 cycle track is a main road, but it's downhill which I always find makes it substantially less stressful. There's a signed bit that gets you into the ped/cycle subway thing; when you're in it I think the signs to look for are South Subway and then St Mary's Cray.

    That route takes the main road from Eynsford to Shoreham; you can also turn right onto Castle Rd just south of Shoreham and then hang a left at the signpost. It's much nicer, though does feature a steeper hill.

    If you wanted a nicer route back in you could head for Cudham and then Biggin Hill after Star Hill and get onto Layhams, and come in through West Wickham. Though the A21's usually not too bad after about 8pm, and it does have a cycle path (well, shared use pavement, but there are basically no pedestrians at that time until you get to Bromley proper) alongside it.

    BBC London Radio have named her as Esther Hartsilver.

    At least one person on here knew her.

    Utterly devastating. RIP.

    Actually if you're after something less main roady I've just figured out a route out via the back streets of Chislehurst that works quite well. It does go on the crappy cycle track alongside the A20 for a bit, which isn't the most scenic, but it's less hideous than my usual route out towards Farningham/Shoreham way. RideWithGPS seems to be having a hissyfit but will try to map it later.

    I have been considering pre-workers, but I'm going to have to get better at getting up early first.

    Hurrah! I am really pleased this is happening. I probably won't be able to join any of them (I have a lot of evening meetings and stuff these days) but I will be getting vicarious afterworker thrills through this thread! And very happy to suggest routes if it's useful.

    Yesterday I rode about 40 miles in Kent and then gave up and had to get a train home. Today I managed about 60 but had to have a small breakdown on a pavement in Bromley before I made it home.

    god being massively unfit is boring.

    Part of his plans were to build what those scurrilous fuckers estate agents refer to as a "garden room" - I've also heard them referred to as "garden work units" and "summer family rooms". It's basically a brick-built shed that stretches the width of the back of his garden.

    I believe that's also known in estate agent speak as a one bedroom house.

    Ooh, I didn't know about these.

    That's a much better name than 'bum flap'.
