  • Join me for what is hopefully the first in a new ride series "Tour de Hood". A lazy Sunday 16 mile social meander showcasing the best bits of Enfield.

    Start with a coffee near Winchmore Hill station, see some posh houses, lots of parks, farmer's market for lunch, stop off to explore a couple of gardens followed by a bit of woodland trail, all ending at the Little Green Dragon micropub.

    Aiming to be rolling by 11am.

    Bring a lock - we'll be stopping at Myddleton House gardens for a wander around.

    Surface is suitable for any bike, although it's not all tarmac.

    If it's raining I'll reschedule for the next time the farmers market is on in May.

  • I for this one as I intent to Cobble on the 10th April.

    Can I assume everyone understands there is a distinct possibility of me doing neather?

  • Is that because this clashes with the Joe Wicks thing at the O2?

  • What depraved shit have you been googling to know stuff like that?

  • You mean you’ve not been following my food and fitness YouTube channel where I discuss pre-ride nutrition and post ride hydration techniques?

  • If McDonalds served beer you'd be able to cut out the ride bit of your food and fitness regime.

  • Won't actually commit to this one as it's out wedding anniversary but it's on my doorstep so seems silly not to join in. Maybe I can talk mrs conkr into an anniversary tandem spin?

  • bump

  • Hope to but will have to reschedule a couple of prior commitments

  • For avoidance of doubt this ride is still on. See you on Sunday for a gentle wobble around the local area.

    Next week looks like it's going to be a scorcher (at least for May).

  • Sorry folks, as much as I want to come along I need to listen to my bad knee that's telling me a bike ride wouldn't be wise at the moment. Hopefully this ride is the first of many and I'll be able to join you on another one.

  • I'm hoping to turn up for this.

  • I'm definitely coming. I might not be there for 10.30 but will be before 11. Don't go without me!

  • Nobody left behind (if you say you'll be there!)

  • Unfortunately out :-(

  • Sadly out also. How are you doing post covid @rhowe ?

  • seems like a nice day for it.

  • Weather looks good. Have a great day & say hi to Richard at the Little Green Dragon (who's another cargo-bike guy, & past member of my cycling club Southgate CC)

  • have squirted some WD40 onto my chain (actually mostly went onto my t shirt due to nozzle technology issue) in a cursory nod toward bike prep.

    will head out to Winchmore Hill in the next 15 mins or so, should be there before 11:00.

  • Doing fine now, managed London to Cambridge last week and even Mrs H is pretty much recovered too (she was about a week behind me)

  • Went on a slight diversion. About 10 mins away.

  • Ok we're seeing off. If you're running late, see you at Forty Hall. DM me for a phone number (or see phone numbers thread)

  • Well that was a relaxing amble
    Hope you had a good time @ChasnotRobert and @brokenbetty

    Some pictures of the speed skating meet we stumbled upon, Food Gatherers market at Forty Hall and Myddleton House gardens.

    It's always sunny in Enfield

  • Many thanks @rhowe for organising this, possibly the perfect blend of food, looking at interesting plants, beer and of course some cycling. Very much enjoyed.

    Nice to meet you @brokenbetty

    Will work on a possible tour of walthamstow and environs.
