Next Saturday I'm doing London to Brighton Off Road BHF ride.
Now 75 miles is a lot for me plus I have to get across London from Paddington Station to the start at Roehampton University - about 7 miles.
Time is tight between my train getting in and the last start time of 9.00am, so people that know London, is it realistic to take a Taxi ?
(assuming taxis will take a mountain bike)
That could save time but importantly cuts down on mileage.
Or do I just cycle (that will put the total mileage up over 80 miles) and trust to good navigation not to get lost?
How long is this likely to take me ?
Any other alternatives I haven't though of, ideas welcome.
