  • Hmm, have we picked the wrong corner of London?

  • Definitely not the nicest of routes out but it's quick enough:

    Will be leaving South Quay around 6:15pm if you want to join? I'll be keeping an eye on the weather though as I don't really fancy a soaking!

  • Dry in Sevenoaks by 5pm according to bbc.

    I quite enjoyed a soggy late morning commute from Ealing this morning. Glad it looks like I wont have 4o miles of that this evening though.

  • I'm worried about my bike getting mucky, so might bring my gearerd bike

  • Before and after

  • Unfortunately I'm out for tonight, and so I shed more tears than the sky can hold rain.

  • I feel like I need a hand wipe just looking at that :)

  • I can't quite understand why he's taken a fairly clean drivetrain and added muck to it? Even stretched out the chain? I normally do it the other way round when doing bike maintenance. Must be some sort of fair weather poseur wannabe or something...

    Enjoy tonight guys! Missing riding these!

  • Afraid I'm out.

    Have a good ride all. Watch out for the possible potholes on that bit of road where the potholes usually are (can't remember it's name). And there is a deliberate mistake on the route, paypal me the price of a Wetherspoon's pint and I'll tell you where it is, otherwise you might find yourself up to your ankles in mud.

  • Also, have the train crew decided on taking Victoria or Blackfriars train?

  • What is the station/train of choice?

  • Victoria easier for me...

  • Victoria for me too

  • Works for me too! Winner

  • I'm on board, just seen you two walking past. Didn't spot you earlier so just grabbed a ticket and jogged...

  • Great! See you there
