not actually proposing this route, per se, but these are the waypoints I was suggesting - this is only 10 miles so could be extended if there's appetite:
I'm interpreting that as a pitch for Thursday.
I would be 'In' for that.
That would work for me for Wednesday.
Also option of Central Line trains back into town from West Ruislip.
And me makes 3. We could then, possibly, do tramp beers at Wormwood Scrubs on Thursday
About 19.30 at Chorleywood station?
Thursday Night: tramp beers Wormwood Scrubs with @skydancer & @moorhen.
Is the chip shop at the pararde to the north of the A40 still in business?
Drop me a line via PM or Signal about riding out?
The chippy should be open and the pint of hops :)
Whenever suits you @mespilus after 5
Be good to see you after so long
That sounds good, unless you want to just meet at the land of Liberty? - will message on Whatsapp if I'm running late...
I may be able to make Thursday as well - especially if you are offering pints of your homegrown hops - just about to brew a beer, so that could be very timely!
I'll see what I can do...
I'm awaiting a reply from @NorthLondonLight to find what route he is using to ride out.
We can always share locations this evening.
A (supplementary) Wests on a Wednesday.
@NorthLondonLight and myself met up with @jdmitch
at the Land of Liberty, Peace and Plenty in Heronsgate.
We then dropped down the hill, under the M25 and had a second drink at the riverside Coy Carp in Harefield. We retraced our route back to the precursor to the A412, and saw the abutments already installed for the HS2 Colne Valley viaduct. Onwards to Denham, up Moorhall Road to Harvill Road, over the Chiltern Line and more HS2-ery then Ickenham and just missed the chippy at West Ruislip.
A fine evening.
Tonight: Tramp beers* on Wormwood Scrubs
@Sifta @NorthLondonLight @jdmitch
A few years ago, (pre-Covid), we met along Braybrook Street.
[* Generic term to include wine, canned pre-mixed shorts, cocktails etc].
Same place as last time?
I'll he there.
Pm about meeting at Pint of Hops to collect essentials or at chippy near East Acton Station?
A fine evening indeed. After beers it became, most definitely, The HS2 Sightseer Ride. Not scenic but incredibly interesting to see the massive works the project entails.
Suggest meet at Pinot of Hops, then a gentle roll to the A40 at the junction leading to the Chippy and the western edge of WWood Scrubs.
The HS2 Sightseer Ride
The HS2 Sightseer Ride
There's another opportunity to see HS2 work net to little wormwood scrubs
Just realised I've inadvertantly invoked Thibaut Pinot upthread.
That worked well.
A lively, informative conversation as dusk fell over the broad horizon of Wormwood Scrubs,
(with just a hint of HS2 in the distance).
UK garden birds.
Lovely session last evening
Will be drinking your beer @jdmitch later
