Anyone going to be watching it? I rather fancy watching it flash past, not on the mall or box hill as I don't fancy spending actual real money. With all these things good company is the big thing.

Plans, thoughts, me toos.

I'm planning on sauntering over to Richmond Park to see them going both ways - I've not checked the details out though...

You'd be welcome to park near me and join us ( I'm not sure if the road closure might impede access to my road or not... and if so, from when ).

I have vaguely similar non-plans for the time trial in Bushey Park too, but that's not so walkable from chez moi, so likely to be me + bike - family... ( possibly with dad... )

Was up for this until I saw the date. Not around, I'm afraid.

Are you going to be in the ticket area on box hill or the vineyard just near by?

We are heading for the latter.

The wine yard at Denbies. The ride only goes past it once I believe, but there's a big screen in there somewhere. And it's free.

I should be going down to the Surrey Hills Road Race Festival @Denbies Vineyard with the missus... any advice on getting there on public transport?

I live in the Uxbridge area, so not sure coming into Central London to catch a train would be the best option... I don't want to even try and drive there, though...

Any suggestions are warmly welcome! Smile

Didn't reply to this, sorry, I'm heading there by bike, there is a train station just to the south that is a short walk. Dan and Annabella are looking at training it to there.

Thanks Peter.

I'll probably train there then (unless I can drive further south and then cycle from there... say about 15/20km).

If I end up using public transport, which I believe I will, then I'll keep my fingers crossed! Razz
