Am AlexB on a number of fora and used to be on the old LFGSS site as well.

    Finally put together my Downslink to Avenue Verte link ride that I've been trying to figure out for ages. It still needs some tinkering, but it was a great mix of off-road and quiet lanes, with some fast road sections to mix it up. 156km door to door.

    No, I'd need to plan ahead as well. In particular I'd like to test a new loop section.
    As a thought, where would you rather start? We could meet in Greenwich and ride along the Waterlink Way and pick up the route from there, or could meet at Norbury station (saves about 90 minutes riding). From Norbury its about 40 minutes to the first bit of off-road.
    Norbury is accessible from London Bridge, Victoria and Clapham Junction.

    Would a weekday or weekend be better?

    So does anyone want to see if there's gravel south of the river?
    I could organise a ride to explore the route I posted upthread. I've ridden it quite a few times and it's a lot of fun.

    Are you talking about this one?

    If so, it's a really nice route.

    Oh and it's not every day you meet a man taking a massive parrot for a walk and a young lady riding a pink unicorn.

    Thanks everyone. I had a really great time. The route was really excellent and I'll definitely venture out that way to explore again. Great company too!

    OK. I'd like to come along. I'll be under-biked and if it all goes tits up, I'll bail, but I'm pretty sure this will be a laugh one way or the other.

    I'd be interested, assuming I can get away.
    Do you think this is doable on a 28mm touring bike?

    I ride it off road quite a bit, but if it's clay, then it'll just clog solid after all the recent rain.
