Sign in to reserve your place in this event!

  • Soon, we'll be able to meet up and cycle together in a group of more than 6.
    Gather in (The Glory that is ) Ruislip, for a curated trip to see the damage caused by HS2 to Ruislip and Harefield. Marvel at the concrete segment factory built just inside the M25. We can see a bit more of the Chilterns, (Bluebells!).

    Date: Well let's see if that R number continues to fall, but soon.

    'I can remember when all this were golf course' he grumbled in Northern.

  • In like Flynn

  • You'll get a special badge for being the 1st sign up.

  • Ruislip is really not my ends, but I am fascinated by your in-depth local knowledge.

  • My last forum ride was probably meandering around rickmansworth, so this would make a nice bookend!

  • Apologies for missing your kind comment when it was fresh.
    Any ingrained opinion masquerading as local knowledge is based upon being a long term resident of TGTi Ruislip.
    (Essentially never escaped after graduating into Thatcher's first recession and having no option but to return to parental home).

  • Likewise your comment escaped me.

    You will be most welcome to acquaint yourself with TGTi Ruislip.

  • Welcome also to @1adnaan1.

  • Thanks @mespilus - I'm watford based when in country, so local to me.

  • Indeed, just up the road, past HMS Warrior.

  • Are these rides fast(er) or more party-paced? I might invite the partner.

  • Some have resorted to fairinged recumbents to keep up with the peleton.

  • Given we will be using bridlepaths in a National Nature Reserve,
    a footpath with a kissing gate to prevent mopeds/motorbikes gaining (easy) access, and stopping to admire views and items of Natural Science interest,
    this will be the definition of a social ride.

    Please invite partner goosenoose.

  • Ideal to fixie and elaborate on your HS2 ideas @amey?
