    Currently hungover and tired, but I'll see you in the morning.

    Would love to see those kids (kids in general) discover the joy of a long distance night ride.

    To the driver of car (RKII USG) on Long Lane, heading towards Tower Bridge this morning round about 8.35/8.40am - not a great manoeuvre. Am disappoint.

    A coffee stop is always welcome as is a stop that includes beer. I'll pop in occasionally to see what date in October you choose. I'm already booked for a night ride on 6/7 October.

    Cheers

    Hi Opiumia, I'd be interested but let me get my 'this might not work' statements up first:

    I'm slow - despite doing (and enjoying long distance rides over the years) with speed intervals
    I (still) ride a titch bike with 650c wheels
    I'm 4'11 so, of course, I'm slow :-).
    I'm old physically. Mentally I'm 30, but my body is slowly winning the argument.
    I'm even slower going up hills but nowhere near as bad as when I first started cycling.

    Over to you!

    Oh THAT was you! I was thinking you reminded me of that guy who sings 'I'm only human' or summat. It was the beard.

    Hopefully next time I'll be focussed in the here and now :-)

    I wear heated plus liner gloves when the temp is below 5C. Other times I wear two pairs: 1 thick/1thin. Strange looks during the summer months when it's two pairs of thins :-).

    Do it. Test ride the different models and if you live close to a hire scheme, try one for a week or so. Or not.

    Now back from New Orleans. No phone search in the US but still used carefully. Whatsapp'd travel mates and fam back here. On reflection, will get a dedicated 'travel' phone and sim for future trips as sim used is my 'backup' sim.

    ION I can thoroughly recommend Mardi Gras and if you love deep fried chicken/fish/meat, that is the place to be.
