  • I just bought an mtb thingy. Tempting ...

  • I'm trying to purchase a beaten 'dale mtb off its owner. If I succeed I'm in!

  • is this suitable for road bike with wide tyres? as suggested

  • It should be fine, the majority of people last time were on road or fixed bikes with wide tyres or cross bikes. A cross bike is the perfect bike for it imo.

    Gutted I can't make it this year, last year was probably the best forum ride I've done.

  • I've done this on an effete plastic road bike with 23 tyres at 100psi. I was with my 9 year old son who also had 23 tyres - albeit at a lower pressure. It's fine, but maybe save your deep section carbon rims for another day...

    most of us done it with only 2 tyres.

  • AhahaHha (23 tyres!)

    9 years old son? 130km??

    Not going to watch the tour in Yorkshire any more, so am ready for a dust bath.

  • We will be using steel frames. After the ride to Cookham I'm sure they'll be just fine with the 28c Marathons

    Can't wait!

  • This was awesome last year.

    I walked a bit of the South Downs on Sunday and am minded to include it at the end of the ride (cutting out Shoreham).
    Pros

    • Avoid Shoreham
    • Beautiful views (see above)
    • Nicer run into Brighton
      Cons
    • Multiple steep hills at the end of a long day (I will be walking up some of them) (see above 2)

    Thoughts?

  • So up for this, sounds like a great day out, love the proposed route.

    Where I can find the GPX? or will be 'released' closed to the date, so it'll be final?

  • No gpx, just follow me.

  • Just to clarify, is this July 6th?

    Yep

    How are people getting back? Train?

    Sure ain't riding back.
    Groupsave.

  • Ain't riding back either :)
    I can ride as much as the distance from the local train station all the way home, which is 2 mins :D

  • Btw, we might meet you guys on the Thames Path in front of Ham House as I live in Twickenham.
    We'll define this when closer to the date.

  • Will book an advanced ticket via southern for £5 then ride the last bit home from croydon/clapham junction/somewhere.

    edit - will make it collected from brighton so if I wake up late and miss you or whatever someone can take the ticket instead

  • good idea...for £5 (£8 in my case) ones are valid on specific trains (times) or are valid through the day?

    Mmm it says: "Valid only on your selected service"

    £24 is the day one.
    So any idea what time we're supposed to arrive?

  • re trains, to collect from station you need the card you paid with or a very sympathetic ticket office person.
    Cheap pre-paid are typically one service only.

    The groupsave has changed from 50% for 4 or 33% off for 3; to 33% off for 3-9 people.
