  • This one is defo not doable fixed on 23c tyres. Although adventure/gravel/cross biek with mud boots on should be fine.
    Meet at Ham Gate then follow the attached Gpx.
    It's ~70 miles and I'd like to get it done in under 7 hours.

  • I want to do this. I’m free that day. I might be fast enough if I have a big cup of coffee that morning. Tentatively in.

  • Sweet. Would be great to have you there.

  • I might be up for this. what time do you plan heading off? oops, scratch that - just realised time is in the event info. yeah that might work

  • Less than a week. Forecast looks good.

  • out, sorry. got to work in dresden that day!

  • Tempted. Getting to Richmond is a PITA, but if you're riding from your house I could join you en route?

  • Where abouts do you want to join?

  • Going from Brockley, got a nice quiet route to Streatham, I understand you're in Tooting? Name a place.

  • Just a reminder that the trains between Brighton/Lewes and Three Bridges are a bit screwed this weekend. I think it's the long way via Littlehampton or a bus to Three Bridges.

    (or you could ride out to Uckfield)

  • I mean en route to Richmond if you're riding to start...

  • Cheers @vilms5000
    I see there are trains from Brighton > Victoria (via Hove and CLJ for other hope on/off options) every 30 mins. 2h 14mins for the full journey mentioned. £18.70

  • Quiet route to Tooting ;)

  • That's a bit shit! I'm riding anyway, won't have time to do it again this year.

  • Weather looks ace. Is anyone still up for it? I'll leave at 6AM if not.

  • Would have bitten your arm off except Saturday is the Peoples Vote March thing and so...
    That route out west from Richmond to roughly Clandon/Guildford is all new for me. I'd be stoked to come along on the next go...
    I hope you have a blast, meanwhile : )

  • 6am start is good too!

  • 6am at Ham Gate?

  • You still in? 6AM in Richmond may be a bit early for you. Let's meet at 7 next tot Tooting Rail.
    I'm going to purezza in Brighton for post ride recovery meal.

  • Now I’m in for sure:) thanks for accommodating for me!
    Purezza is a good idea, haven’t been to that one yet.
    Will bring loads of snacks so as not to rely on a cafe/pub along the way. But cool if you’re planning on stopping at one.

  • Sweet! I normally stop at coops on the way to get more snacks and drinks. But we can do a pub too.

  • Booking train ticket back.
    Brighton > Victoria is £16.20 but I'm getting off at Clapham Junction.
    If you look up Brighton > CJ it's £18.70 so don't fall for this trap... wtf

  • oh dammit. I've just bought a gravel bike and am really keen to do this kind of thing but can't make Saturday. And you're going to Purezza!!...I'm about to cry.

    Have fun!

  • I'll get mine on the station and I'm only going as far as East Croydon. Paid under a tenner last time I did it.

  • This route is perfect for Gravel/XC rigid 29er. But I'd skip the SDW section if I were on skinny tires.
    I'll be doing it again in early Spring.
