    Selling my Pompino here - my days of fixed are numbered.

    I can do Friday unless it's raining, don't like rain.
    Time and place?

    Last time I took a bike up there it was a case of locking it to a bench / lamp post, not a sheffield stand in sight.

    I can do a lunchtime spin for ~90 minutes most days with a bit of notice.

    "As a rule of thumb, a gearing in gear inches the same as a person's height in inches is a comfortable gear for riding on the flat" says Wikipedia.

    However, my ride would be spinny as heck if that were true.

    Don't know how far "too long is" but going South gives you good options too.

    About 10 miles: Norwich > Trowse > Stoke Holy Cross (turn left up Stoke Road*) > Poringland > Arminghall > Trowse > Norwich

    • Resembles an actual hill

    About 20 miles: Norwich > Trowse > Stoke Holy Cross (left after the Church) > Shotesham > Brooke** > Bergh Apton > Poringland > Arminghall > Trowse > Norwich.

    ** Or turn left on the Norwich road to cut out the Bergh Apton part and shave a few miles off.

    Or longer still, don't turn off in Stoke and keep going to Saxlingham, Hempnall, Woodton, Seething, Mundham, Brooke then as above. Around 35 miles.

    I used to work there. The lights on the stairs never worked, nor did the heating, and sometimes tramps would wee in the lobby. It's probably improved since then.

    I must've met the worst of the VCN bunch then. Big groups are fun, they usually split into smaller groups depending on pace as far as I know.

    Brick Lane Bikes? I'm sure there's a load of other UK indies that'll ship.
