Right - all that were intersted in a meet this weekend, Gravity Karma and I got the map out last night and we have combined local knowledge to give you all a nice spin through woods and fire roads and South Downs chalk next Saturday.

The plan is to meet at Arundel train Station at 10am and head out when everyone has finished in the obligatory faff zone about 10.30ish.

The route will be around 20miles but can be made shorter/ longer depending on who's tired/ eager etc. Mrs Wu will be there too so can always escort tired legs back early if needs be.

Here's a Streetmap link for the rendevouz.

The car park at Arundel station is about £3.00 a day I'm afraid, but it makes sense as at that time on a Saturday you won't get parked anywhere else around there and it's easy for those travelling on the train.

There are a few cafe stops here and there on the route so no need to pack sandwiches if you can't be bothered, but we can stop for those if you'd prefer a picnic.

PM me if you want my phone number in case you get lost, but it's pretty easy to find.

Trains from London Victoria take about 1hr 15mins and should be two an hour.

It's on the A27 for those from East/ West and down the A29 or A24 for those from the North. Those from the south will, I'm presuming, be swimming so won't need a road direction.

Let me know if you are coming and I'll work out how big a group it'll be. Post below if coming along I suppose.

Matt - are you staying over Sat night?

Should be a lot of fun.
