  • Train, 0754 from Waterloo:

    seager (on gears and will jump on the train at Clapham)

    Ride out, 0700 from Waterloo:


  • @jaeyukdapbap @cagimaha @skive do we want to do a groupsave on a return ticket? Would meet at 7:40 under the big clock in Waterloo station if so.

  • Yep, in for groupsave. I'll aim to be at Waterloo a little earlier to allow for coffee/food intake.

  • sounds perfect.
    thank you.

  • Weather is looking good.

    We will use the GPS track from here: http://leithhilloctopus.s3-website-eu-we­st-1.amazonaws.com/route/index.htm

    Annoyingly your groupsave return will be cheaper than riding out and train back. Stupid trains. Will message in the morning if I've decided to change my mind and join the groupsave.

  • Is there a difference between that GPS track and the ride with GPS link in the first post?

  • I think they are the same file. We'll find out when you turn left and I don't.

  • Realised that it goes through Wimbledon. I’ll join there! See you guys tomorrow, perhaps I’ll manage to figure out your carriage.

  • You're assuming I'll keep up with you!

    Ride out, 0700 from Waterloo:

    2ruserius, but not from waterloo, will be at Putney Bridge at 7:20 to meet someone for a key drop off.

    What coffee shop we meeting at? First one I found while perusing google streetview was "Musette", with a Costa across the road.

  • Musette looks good. But if it hasn't opened when we arrive, will go to Costa instead. (2-4 High St).

    I am riding out. See you all at the café.

  • @seager we're on the last carriage in the train

  • I'm waiting at the station for the train group, then will show the way to meet Graham at Musette.

  • really enjoyed the hills i rode and made the right decision to head back.
    hope you finished up well.

  • Glad you came!

    6,800 feet on the Garmin for me. Glad to be on the train home.

  • Great ride, thanks for organising! Definitely had a sense of humour deficiency on the last couple of hills.

    For those who had the misfortune to get the train back to LDN with me, some cultural learnings for you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZJRqCq60­Lc0

  • Didn't ride but still, that's an... education...

  • Hardest 100 I've ever done. Literally collapsed into bed on getting home.
    Super strong ride by @cagimaha. Fixed friendly it was not!
    Thanks @inappropriate_bike for organising, I think.

  • Great ride - would 100% do again.

    Definitely wouldn't have been able to do that fixed. Fair play to @cagimaha for grinding up in such good spirits.
