Tomorrow from 10:00!
On what was going to be my last weekend in the UK(ha ha) I am combining four of my favorite London adventures into one mega-fun ride in the sun, stopping regularly at pubs. Kinda like a GSIAD.
Ride South West
Circle Line Ride
You could join for all or part of the way.
So far the timings look like this:
10:00 Royal Inn on the Park (Victoria Park)
11:35 The Angel Bermondsey
14:00 The Old Ship Hammersmith
15:30 The Coach and Horses Kew
19:00 Parliament Square
00:00 Who knows?
Obviously that schedule is going to slip.. I will keep this page updated through the day.
Total ride distance will be about 100KM, total beers drunk as yet unknown.
Bring sunscreen, a hat and a water bottle!
There is a Facebook page too.
First thought fwoaar, then thought oof. Daylight bridges should be nice. In, but with more sunblock and mosquito repellent.
Why do I work every. Damn. Saturday
Lots of suncream.
Meet us at Parliament Square?
No computer at home to make a nice image, route will look kinda like this:
This is a better attempt:
I see you're doing the Euston Road TT
Would ride, but I'm in France at the moment. Have a good ride!
Map looks good...
After a 30° ride all over London, visiting several pubs, might be more like a crawl.
Holy hell, it is going to be 34° tomorrow.
Almost as if Australia has come to me instead.
I'll be bringing sunscreen and a water bottle for sure. Might even cut the sleeves off a t-shirt..
I'm not sure I'll make it out tomorrow, John. Apologies in that case. I was absolutely wilting under the heat today. Not used to Australian conditions. I hope to join you at least for a bit, but I don't know for how long. The morning should still be halfway tolerable, I hope.
hey Johnny |³|MA3K, can't be there as I'm in France but I'm thinking of you! Have a great ride and I hope we'll cross paths again in the future.... where are you off too? All the best, d0cA :-)
Woke up gassed.
Might be 10 minutes late.
Ha, so the schedule has slipped..
Meet us at The Angel or give yourself an extra hour..
At The Angel
Leaving after a pint, The Old Ship next.
We are at The Old Ship for 30.
Next stop Kew Green, back on the Bridges then Circle Line.
App to drink?
No thanks, heading back in on the Bridges..
Next stop some pub halfway to Tower Bridge.
Wandsworth Bridge chills, need to eat or pass out.
Thanks for a lovely ride, all. Would have loved to do the whole, but I was just about cooked when I got home. It was very good that the sun only came out so late. Great to meet all those I hadn't met before and good to see citygent again.
Amazing ride planning, John.
Yeah I'm pooped here at work, might catch another ride if your travel keeps getting delayed (not wishing it on you!)
All the best x
Made it to Tower Bridge.
30 minutes here then Circle - 20:00 Parliament.
So this was the ride I joined. Nice to meet you all briefly. Stay hydrated x
