First attempt saw only Rod_Munch and Ruserius riding as the trains weren't fully cooperating. Here's to hoping things work better this time round.
39 miles of (almost) all down hill, with a beer-stashing stop as the Sainsbury is still closing at 10 pm.
The train times have changed again (!):
Train out: KGX 19:06, arrives 19:42 (alternatively: Old Street 19:03, arrives 19:49)
Train back: 22:22, 22:52, 23:22, last train 23:24
Here's to breaking away.
Can we agree on taking the train from Kings Cross for group save purpose? The Old Street service is slow and death by a thousand stops anyway.
Yep Kings X 4 me pls
I'm mid flat move but hoping to make it. May flake on the day but for now I'm in.

Headwind out, tailwind back.
Hi all, responsibilities at home mean I can't make the ride tonight and will have to settle for local lanes as a consolation :'''(
Have fun, be safe, make good choices.
You'll be sorely missed
But we will try to enjoy
The ride anyway
I yearn for dark lanes
but I must raise my child.
Hearts are dynamos.
How many syllables is "lasmashfestina"?
arg I love this route. Have a nice time, I woulda come if I’d noticed it.
Sorry guys, I'm out, feeling a bit under the weather.
5 if I’m counting correctly.
Summer is over
Riders drop like Autumn leaves
I love it when you talk all continental
What's the designated rondayvoo at King's Cross?
"Where the roof meet the floor" is where I was told to be when meeting up for my first TNRC ride.
I'm useless at cryptic crosswords
Well the train is definitely moving in the right direction.
Did you make that train, or did you all slip over in wet cleats and end up sprawled across the concourse covered in McDonalds as it pulled away?
Oh no did you all get rained on?
It was dry in Kent. And in a positive development, I think I have put together a really nice Kent 3 route which we should try out. Similar length and elevation to Kent 2, but goes up Toys and down Back Lane which is wicked. Also avoids the out-of-the gate throat punch that is Star Hill
And getting train to West Wickham/hayes is quite easy.
Not badly rained on - but it probably matched the dictionary definition of 'patchy showers'. We rode into some warm rain at the top of the climb, which then seemed to alternate between dry and drizzle every 5 mins for the rest of the ride - including one period of torrential rain that lasted about 20 seconds!
This is what I had in mind, as about 34 miles with a stop and possible pub puts people back to the train in good time. People who live in deep SE London could meet us in Brasted for example @Klar
