Hey I was thinking maybe tomorrow we could do one of @tricitybendix rides if anyone's keen?
Maybe on Monday we could do this route to Southend by @cornelius_blackfoot?
It goes by the reservoir too.
How was the steady ride? That example would have me on my absolute limits I reckon. Have been umming about them for a while.
Soooooo... I punctured my two wheels in one go at Hampton Court, then by the time I was finishing to fix the second I realised I had pinch punctured the first one again.
At that moment I told them to keep on going without me.
First 25km was good though ¯_ʘᗜʘ_/¯
That route to Southend looks good. I think I've done some of it when I've ridden there before. I have to chop my seatpost tomorrow, so if that all goes well then I should be in.
Who is in for Monday and where/what time should we meet?
Might not be up for a rigorous ride tmr.. Managed to acquire what feels like a big bruise on my thigh idiotically dropping my chain hopping off a curb earlier..
@blowfish I hope you're ok. Let me know if you want to go for a cruiser one. Otherwise rest up! x
Im fine.. Just sods law tagt this has to happen after a ride :-p
Will see how it feels tmr and let you know
I think I'll leave it for a day.. tmr I need to be back in London for early afternoon so will do a Layhams loop or similar in the morning.
Ok well if anyone's up for Southend we could meet at LMNH at 9? I guess I'll ride fixed... List!
I should be good for this.
Will have to be back in London early tomorrow so will pass on the southend although I've never been and would really like to go!
@blowfish if you were looking for company I'd be down for a short loop with you ?
Sure.. 9am start in Catford ok?
No long rides for me tomorrow, need to keep a close eye on my little chap for at least a day.
Sure - where exactly do you want to meet ?
9am at 99 Bromley Road =)
@Doctor_Cake, hope he's getting better?
He seems to be, but I need to keep a close eye on him for the next little while to make sure he doesn't get worse.
Kris, sorry I am going to have to cancel for tomorrow... hope to make it out another time.
Hey - no problem, quite looking forward to a sleep in TBH!
Anyone want to ride Saturday morning?
Anything planned for 4-5 July, or later in the summer?
New here, but would love to get involved with any social rides. My short commute has left me a bit sluggish on a bike but once upon a time I wasn't too bad- keen to get back there! I currently ride a well loved ss charge but contemplating investing in a geared bike (if I can persuade my employer that I can be trusted on a ride to work scheme)
I look forward to hearing about any upcoming rides!
Hey, I would be up for it as well! I ride an old loyal SS Trek, neither the bike or the owner are in the best possible shape but would be interested in doing longer rides and getting to know new routes as I'm still quite new to London (ended up in an Ikea car park the other night on my bike ride, not good).
Hey, check out the thread for the women's 100 (kilometre) ride: http://www.lfgss.com/conversations/267605/?offset=25#comment12376700
That's probably the next big ride coming up.
Hey @eskimojudi & @lulah and EVERYONE else.
Like Caz was saying, we're up to some fun for the women's 100.
check it out and come along: https://www.lfgss.com/events/894/
