  • No I don't think so. Possibly the last section from the ferry / foot tunnel to IKEA Greenwich. But I don't think it will be an issue.

    I was in Blackheath on Thursday and saw the signs for the marathon. Did a quick mental run through and figured it would be fine .

  • This is this Saturday.

    9.45 departure from IKEA Croydon. I'll get there for 9am for a coffee and a cake.

    Meeting point will be near the kids playground, by the entrance.

    A lot of this ride will be on river paths. Bring appropriate tyres and tools. A lock will probably be needed.

    If anyone with Garmin's could upload the route in the first post, that would be good.

    See you then.

  • We can decide on cable car or foot tunnel or ferry when we are at Stratford.

    The main bit of the route that I need Garmin help with is from Wembley to Walthamstow.

  • It's gonna rain. Mud guards if you can please.

  • Right, time to fettle with tyres and mudguards then. And with garmin.

    Cable car pretty please :)

  • Weather wise, Sunday would be better.

    Any views?

  • I’d be happy with that.

    (Cue hail storms on Sunday...)

    But you might lose the people that want to ride that 25-odd miles ride around central London and that ends near Buckingham Palace.

  • i can only do saturday...

  • We'll stick with Saturday unless there is an overwhelming complaint.

  • rain is looking less likely now but could be a bit blowy

  • In other potential sporting disruption news it's also Spurs - West Ham kicking off at 12:30 tomorrow with road closures from 10:30 to 16:00 around the new Tottenham Stadium. Looks like the route skirts just around any of the closed roads noted on the TfL site but could be a bit busier traffic wise just to be aware of.

  • I might head over for the start and then bugger off when it starts to rain.

  • Do Ikea have a dress code? Does it mention Lycra?

  • Lycra must be blue+yellow if it's going to be worn as part of the uniform.

  • Thanks for the info about Tottenham Traffic. Hopefully we won't be in the thick of it for too long.

    See y'all tomorrow.

  • After much fettling I have mudguards and tyres that hold air. Now to put some pedals on.

  • Got a poorly rellyin Brighton so am riding down there. Sad to miss it. Have a hot dog for me x

  • feel that we would be missing out if we didn’t take the Thames path from Putney to the newly closed-to-cars Hammersmith bridge.

    Obviously good route adjustment is obvious. We can do this.

  • With this wind, we will need to check if the cable car is open.

  • It's open so far today which is good.

    We're going to leave IKEA Croydon at 9.45. if you are coming but will be a bit late, shout on here. I'll check before heading off.

  • @tonyme and I are here.
