  • This was fun. Even if me and Alb got lost and did several of the hills twice.


  • Does anyone know of nearby car parking as i'll be heading in from the Wilds of Essex and don't wanna rely on trains toget me near the start in time

    Any of the streets that drop off behind Church Rd SE19 will be free to park on - for example Milestone Road SE19.

  • Good laugh this, shame I can't be there, but I'll be running a marathon in Brighton....

  • In! So glad they let 'anyone' join :-)

  • In!

  • In!.. this'll be one week after tour of flanders..
    if i have recovered might go fixed..


  • And in, and so is my brother - who I didn't even know HAD a bicycle!

  • In!

  • Entered.

  • Cheers for the Parking tip....
    Can't wait as this ride now added to my already growing lists of rides.....

  • In!

  • @ kdog - i am not your mother, i sent you the link fill in your own bloody form.
    @ dropout, this was a really dope run out last year with a great time in the pub after.

  • I only just saw the video from last year. It's good.

    is that digger at 2:34?

  • yep, walking.

  • Slaining, if you please, there is a glimpse of me in the saddle too, I'm going to say I was overgeared.
    In like Flynn for this year (maybe geared for the S.London Alps).

  • i'll be riding almost twice the official distance (fixed!!)..
    a bit like being a yo-yo..
    swiss cottage-CP-LMNH-CP-swiss cottage = 58miles

  • I think my eyeballs are vibrating.

  • digger that is an awesome grin.
    the picture of me is terrible trying to smile will my head is going uhuhuhuhuhuhuhuhuhuhuh.

  • in

  • Newbie just signed up for first ride, wahoo! See you all there and lets have some sunshine please.

  • Did last year's. It was great fun and good atmos back at hq watching P-R.
    I don't think I can make this one but it's highly recommended.

    I couldn't recognize which tree-fringed part of South London features in the first minute of this vid., and was getting worried at how my fixed efforts might compare, only to realize it was footage of the real P-R as a lead-in to the more prosaic efforts of the London Classic. Underlined by Digger pushing up the hill at 2.14!

    Pipe lagging on the bars for shock-absorbtion- what do you say Hippy?

  • I saw that done at Paris-Roubaix. London's "cobbles" are no comparison. A normal pair of gloves and you should be fine. Then again.. the post-ice pothole situation has worsened.. ;)

  • C'mon Hippy, be a good day out no?

  • Just signed on, I really enjoyed this last year.
