    We will be leaving from the GLA building around 10PM
    Get there around 9:30, have a beer, introduce yourself and collect a few phone numbers.

    **I will be heading back into the city from Kew **
    So if you need directions or someone to ride with there will be heaps of us heading back central.

    I hear there are 3 closed bridges. Is that true?
    Albert, Hammersmith, Southwark and Waterloo might be affected:

  • I hear there are 3 closed bridges. Is that true?

    I think the Albert will be closed, but not to pedestrians or (more importantly) cyclists.
    Waterloo Bridge is down to one lane Northbound, again no problem.

    If you have any info regarding closures let me know so I can do some research.

  • Just edited my post to include the Standard article.

  • I'd be very suprised if they were totally inaccessible, particularly the further out bridges.
    Will monitor, but I'm confident you will still be able to get several score of pissed-up cyclists across them.

  • Albert Bridge you can definitely cycle over, I do it daily. The catch is, they walled it down to one sidewalk on the west side, so it's a tight fit!

    Anyway, my birthday is a few days after this, so I'd be silly to miss it!

  • So up for this. The last one was so good (even though many got frostbite and the ice caused horrendous accidents throughout...) that I couldn't possible let another one slip between my fingers.

  • Experience from previous bridges rides has taught me that going east to west you need at least 6 cans because the pub in Kew will be shut by the time you get there. Or you can stop at the Offie in Putney Bridge if you're there in time...

    Just chucking that advice out there.

  • that's great advice and should be listened to.

  • One of these days, we could end this at Kingston. Then we could do those weird little half-lock bridges and a bit of proper towpath...

  • Yes please.
