Because I am of very limited imagination - let's go back to Clifton Hampden again.
Lovely river swimming with a nearby pub for lunch. Options to get train out to Iver and cut out W London horribleness or ride out. Newly refined route, with thanks to @adroit, involves more lovely Chilterns, less horrible A road
Suggest meet Iver station at 9.20 (8.57 from Paddington gets you there in time). Then a tea stop in Burnham Beeches, a leeeeetle slog over Christmas Common, dip in the Thames, pub lunch and train back from Didcot.
does this mean no more list-making ?
Think I;ll be route checking the steam ride mk.II with Tim KT :/ would loved to haved joined otherwise... And this new LFGSS event marlarky is great!
... @KT_Bee will you be riding fixed?
Ah I'd love to do this, but sadly I'll be in Spain. Done bits of this route out a couple of times with Bernie, and Clubman at different times and it's always a lovely route!
Christmas Common is a bit of a drag, but there aren't any major ramps up, just approach it at a steady pace and keep on going...
Shame. If ther weather is half ok this shoud be a good one.
Weather's looking ok-ish for Saturday.
fingers crossed for the weather!
I went to Hampstead ponds on Saturday and it was a nice temp still :) but so much nicer with sun, even if intermittent.
I should be there, but depends a bit on OH parental visit.
I'll come for the ride, but if it's cold there is no way I'm getting near any water!
If anyone wants a nice route that's mostly quiet roads to the start, I've got one that I think would do. I probably won't ride out, as it's too early in the morning.
Ok, well let's call it on Friday. I don't mind a bit of rain, but it's not meant to be a suffer fest.
Fingers crossed the weather holds for you all. I will be there in wild swimming spirit.
remind me why we're not doing this sunday? trains? weather looks better, but it's England, so anyone's guess really.
I can't do Sunday, but v happy for others to ride it on Sunday instead if it works for most people - route is in OP.
Back on the bike now, but cold swimming, miles from home/hot shower might be a ste...stroke too far for me atm...:/
no obligation to swim ...
forecast for saturday is looking decent now ~
indeed - looking better and better
Sorry to say I'm out.
I've got a cyclocross training session on Sunday, so wouldn't be able to do the ride that day.
The weather is looking better and better, so I declare Saturday's ride ON. See you all at Iver.
Can we do a groupsave from Paddington?
No reason why not, we just ned to commit to meeting a bit earlier and all going for the same train - Saturday monrings can be a bit of a nightmare at Paddington. Shall we say meet 8.30 at the ticket office?
