    6 @Gaurav
    7 @Chalfie ?

    Anyone I've missed?

  • I’m unavailable tmrw but am interested in more. Sorry. #dadlyfe

  • So having just come out the other side of my third round of Covid I thought a very brief shakedown ride today would be a good idea.

    Not 300m out of the door, just as Vanbrugh Hill starts to kick up, I stood on the pedals and rear wheel slipped forward. Excellent start. User error though. Adjusted wheel, tightened nuts and rolled down to the bottom to start again. Turning, forgot about toe overlap, almost stacked it. Brilliant.

    Up the hill we go, no issues with the bike but quickly realise that my lungs are completely fucked. Just about made it to to the top, coughed up half a lung and rolled on to Greenwich park. Three little loops including going up and down the park hill then home back down Vanbrugh, which was sketch as I can't spin for shit. All bodes really well for tomorrow :/

  • FWIW I believe the route is "legit" @amey

    Sorry to hear about the lungs @ElGonzo

  • I am ending a rough week childcare wise and it feels like the kid has given me the bug, but I am riding, might be slow, only aim is to finish the ride, see you guys tomorrow! @Chopsicle sorry couldnt collect the stickers, one for the November ride.

  • I'm still planning on coming

  • Just to confirm, we are meeting at the start point as in the map right?
