Stay safe, stay kind
See you there.
Oh yeah, go on then.
:-) A list!
Scratch that for me, I'm going to do a Parkrun instead. Sorry!
Might be able to join you for first bit of ride. Covid means less of family around so less work for me that day
Cool, we are staying central.
See you at Oxford Circus
Seems the dinner hour has been brought forward for the folk we are sharing it with so looks like I can’t make it after all. Sorry folks…enjoy the ride
Go on then, not been on here for ages!
I have my mince pies and (improvised) hip flask of booze at the ready.
85% chance that I will make it, so I trust you won't wait for me.
On my way!

I'll leave it to Almac for the missing link
it was indeed a great and informative ride this morning, thank you for leading this year. Lovely to see @spudger @DoubtfulAce @Ndeipi and others. Also a wonderful surprise to see @cliveo and his daughter out riding around Soho to take in the festive lights.
with regard to House of St Barnabas, a private members club with a difference.
I do enjoy being part of this , many great events and memories here.
With reference to the Gielgud (formerly known as the Hicks, then the Globe) and the newly named Sondheim (formerly known as the Queens) Theatres.
Like other pairs built in London eg. the Novello (formerly known as the Strand and the Aldwych theatres were designed by prominent theatre architect W.G.R. Sprague in the late Victorian and early Edwardian era.
Our theatre district remains world class and I have had many great experiences restoring a few of them in the noughties..
Thanks for the ride you lot!
Spudger here (got issues with original profile). Great company and ride this morning with thanks to Bermondsey Bill for the lovely Tour de Soho!
It was a joy to see you all.
The bells were ringing hard at St Paul’s this morning
Another Waifs and Strays done in 2021
