Looking for some Sunday ride cohorts in and around London. I'm west, ealing way. Like old GTs and reminiscing about cosmic trail and the grizedale forest. Nice to meet the rest of the SE group.

I'm not too far, very close to jct 14/M25, near Heathrow.

I've been known to wander around Swinley Forest now and again. 8)

I've been to Swinley on occasions since 1992, so know my way around it a bit. Given the time (I've 3 jobs at present) I can get there weekends and weekday nights. I'm a bit slow these days, but if you don't mind waiting top/bottom of hills, I'll gladly show you some nice trails there that you won't find on any map.

Searched swinley on you tube, looks like there's plenty to have a go at. I'd love to take you up on the offer Steve. I don't think i'll be waiting for you mind.

A weekend would be better for me, I work in central London so difficult to get out of the city and past the kids.

Hi,
I would be interested if the date fits and my knees aren't playing me up.
As I work shifts so my Sundays aren't always free.
Swinley's not that far from me as I live near J2/3 of the M40.
Heard that it's a good place to ride from someone at work who's ridden there.
