    We have spoken about this off the thread a couple of times. As Howard said he is tied up. Cake and I have spoken about it too. However I am away the next couple of weekends. Depending on how September looks we could still do it again this year.

    Lets at least collate the new places here so we can factor them in.

    Oddono's have a new shop on Chiswick High Street.
    Gelupo have a new shop at the junction of Charring Cross Road and Shaftsbury Avenue. (Been there a few times already.)

    What else?

    The London-Oxford-London is a great ride, done it anti-clockwise the first time it was run. Not done it in reverse, I have a feeling the reverse might be a tad easier since you hit the climbs earlier in the day.

    This may be a stupid question - most likely covered in the 90 odd pages on this thread already. How do I join without buying a jersey? I tried to do the 'join' thing in the shop but I can't checkout without a jersey. I would love one - 'Club Cut' my arse, waiting for 'Orca cut'.

    The weekend of September 5th has both the Steam Ride and the London Sightseer. Thinking I might do the 'Steam Ride - Inside Track' on the Saturday. Then the Sightseer on the Sunday. Should make for a good set of social rides, any other takers? A good combo for new Audax riders or thread lurkers looking to get into it perhaps.

    I like the new venue. Joe great job with the pub!

    Good catching up with Easts peeps. Now that I am more central for work, I should be dropping by more regularly.

    I get what you are saying Ed. But I mean literally put them on a Friday evening, take them off Monday morning. The typical plastic cage stays on, once it is fitted - no?

    Just catching up with this thread after a few weeks. What is wrong with the Salsa Cages? Did they get re-called? I was going to get those damn.

    I want to be able to easily take them off!. My CC only has a single mounting point on the front. So I was going to try and cable tie the other two mount points. The gorrilla do seem better for what I want. However as you can see in the picture Ed posted, the metal bolts or screw are going into plastic. So over time that plastic is going to wear away, no?

    Who has got either of them already - opinions please?

    Also since we are talking about the Trangia's - my Trangia mini has been awesome only used it a few times last year, and handful this year - so impressed. But I wanted an extra pot/pan so I went for this set from YellowStone The small pan is the same size as the standard Trangia mini. So if I want to I can take the large one and the mini and all the bits fit nicely. The pan handle from Yellowstone is better than the Trangia one. The set is only £8! The quality is not as high as the Trangia but if all you want to do is boil some water for a couple of cups of coffee for the thermos then it works great.
