I'm relieve! Current fasting from meat for lent...that would have been torture.

Rain check? Oops, perhaps not the wisest of words Wink

First post updated with route details as well as who's meeting where.

For those meeting at HPC - the meeting point is where the Stroll sets off from @approx 0940
For those meeting at Crystal Paalce - the meeting point is Cafe Paradou on Crystal Palace Parade ( http://g.co/maps/4v2rg ) @approx 1045

Forecast is currently looking pretty good (famous last words!) Smile

Looks like it could be a bit too cold to have lunch in a beer garden.

I'd suggest bringing a lock and we can lock the bikes together just outside the pub.

You can squeeze your bike onto mine - connecting at the frame, mind you.

If we opt for the indoor pub, the bikes should be within eye's view, and shoot-out-of-the-door's reach.  It's just to stop any opportunitists, and if all locked to one another, shouldn't need securing to an anchor point.

Of course, if it turns out to be tolerable to lunch outdoors, there's a pub with a beer garden that we can opt for and have our bikes with us.


I have sore leggies from today's activities - did much more than I intended to!

It was indeed.  Even managed to have lunch outside in glorious sunshine.

The route's a lot hillier than I remember it to be, with many "worst bit is over now" sections Embarassed

Thanks everyone for coming along - I had a blast!  I'll try arrange another one soon.
