    Oooh. I’ve got a plan.

    I’m in London, so travelling to Brighton and back for a Brighton-London-Brighton ride would be a bit perverted. But I’ve just thought I could ride the off road bit after work on Friday, and ride back to London on Saturday, leaving plenty of the rest of the day free for the one or several boring things that might come up.

    DrP, just trying ot work out timings from your links, but failed. How long did the 2 legs take you last time?

    Road leg took about 3.5 hours – stopping for snacks/photos etc
    Off road bit took about 6.5 ish
    I stopped in clapham to enjoy the sun and have some late breakfast (about 45 min).
    Then i think it’s about 8 miles link between the two routes, through london..

    (come down, do the whole day!!)

    It would be too easy to stop once we got to London!

    I’ve got the Ride 100 the following weekend, so there would lot of good reasons to stop – tapering and what-not, real or imagined niggles, being near my house etc.

    We’re also house hunting pretty hard at the moment and Saturdays are important to keep free (or at least free-ish). I might have to get off at Redhill-ish if we’ve got viewings booked up.

    Hmm, I may be a bit far south. I’ll go on my own.

    We’ve got a few committed to this..just thought I’d bring it back to the front page for a bit more monday morning attention!

    Can I do the Brighton – London bit with you on my road bike?
    Then either cruise home at a more sensible pace with cafe stops , or train it back into hants then ride from there.

    Alas, I’m at a wedding or I’d be there. I’ve got a cross bike suitable ride I’ve been meaning to redo that heads into Kent from near Crawley (outwood), about 70 miles if I remember correctly- anyone interested in that at a later date?
