Re: Day 1, London-La Palma, July 4th

‘I have noticed, from Sort to Valencia is anything but flat.
From Valencia there is a direct train to Murcia.’

This is great info Fran, thanks, could be very useful!

Day 1, London-La Palma, July 4th

Not sure if I have mentioned to anyone that we (Davide, Ken and I) have a big (bordering on completely ridiculous) trip planned for July? Thursday 4th July is Day 1 and all we need to do is get ourselves down to Portsmouth in time for a 20:00hrs ferry crossing to St. Malo. The plan is to meet at my ...

So the London-LaPalma team, ie, myself Ken and Davide, will be joining in the Berrylands to Brighton route and group breakfast, and then heading to West Wittering for a carb loaded lunch provided by Vicky and my in-laws before heading home. Fran and Stu are also joining us for the day. Unfortunately...

Sat 13th April

After stressing a 6.55am meet and a 7am rollout I found myself oversleeping slightly and was the last to arrive in Hollyfield Road. Six of us set off in dry but very cold conditions, only 2 degrees, and met up with Robin as arranged in Cobham. Our route took us along Plough Lane, past the prison to ...

Re: Saturday 13th April

Looking pretty cold first thing tomorrow and below my usual 3 degree threshold but I think we’ll be okay to ride. Wear layers and good gloves, see you in the morning.

Saturday 13th April

My turn to lead this week and I would like to meet at 6.55am for a prompt 7am rollout from the usual place. Currently looking at a forecast of a chilly start but dry with sunny spells so hopefully that won't change too much as the week goes on. Route will be into Surrey, will involve hills, group ri...

Re: sat 30th march

Echo the above comments, thanks Geoff for leading after not much sleep at all and with a big lunch appointment ahead of you, thanks also Geoff and DavidM for coffees. Chilly start and two pairs of gloves to start the ride (obviously) but so nice to be out in shorts in March and definitely warm and p...
