hey guys, there's a good chance i'll be in the big smoke on friday night so i may be joining you on saturday! :D :D

i'll be staying in kilburn though, so not sure on the best way to meet up, meaning get to the start or meet you mid ride?

thoughts? :)

been looking in to it via google maps, having checked distances i could meet you at Greenwich, 10miles from kilburn or stratford, again 10miles from kilburn, i will be returning to kilburn after the ride so i was thinking 10 miles to meet you, however many miles with you then leave you at somepoint, say westminster, which is then about 5 miles back to kilburn

still a sensible ride but it also means that if a i have a beer or 2 too many on friday night i wouldn't have to up too early!!



:D

You could ride to West Hampstead ThamesLink Station, about 1 mile from Kilburn High Road. About 40 mins to East Croydon on a train, check at the trainline.com for times and bike restrictions on this particular route. This route could also serve as a return route from the City at journey's end.

OR a longer ride down the A5, Kilburn High Road, Park Lane, etc. towards Victoria Station, then only a 15 minute express train journey.

OR a similar ride down towards the river at Westminster, for a Thames Clipper service to Greenwich (quite an adventure as they are very fast catamaran ferries which take bikes, plus some great views of London landmarks from the Thames too).

===============================================

I will probably go for the black Muirwoods, 26" wheels, 2" tyres, rigid frame. It is a bit slower than my 700c bike, but very comfortable and quicker to change inner tubes if punctured.

If its mainly roads, it wont get muddy but will look like a boss! I might have to bring the HD camera with me just in case 8)

I only have my Saracen, I cant justify more than one bike. I dont ride this one enough as it is!!
