Riding in London again…(riding content)
Just a thought but how about some kind of dress code stylee theme? There has been a lot of stuff on this forum lately about lids/no lids/xc lite agro/ fershizzle bling bling yoof/hoodie malarkey (plus there was those guys over in Central London dressing up in tweed) – maybe we should have some kind of drunken loon theme as well??? 😈Posted 8 years ago
I’ll be riding, as me gammy claw will probbly be fine by then. S’healing up nicely.
Well, I’m proposing the East route, as no-one else has actually put forward an inertesting West route.
Bearing in mind, to make things easy for everyone, that all rides should really start and finish in Central London. I don’t think I’d want to be stuck over in Windsor or something, and have to schlepp all the way back home from there, just ‘cos it’s convenient for one or two. And we’d have people like Cheesyfeet, coming in from Essex, so we should be mindful of everyone’s need to be able to get home easily. If the West London lot want a West London pootle, that’s fine, but bear in mind not all of us live West.
I’d be more than happy to lead this East ride. So youse can shout at me, if it all goes wrong. I’ve planned it with options of using the RiverBus, and there are train services along the southern part, which get you back into CL, if something goes wrong. I’ve tried to plan a ride which is inertesting, fun, and varied. And above all, away from heavy traffic. And some of the bits we’d ride through, won’t be rideable soon, as rampant development is changing things dramatically.
Anyway, this is Duntmatter’s baby really, as he first suggested the London Pootles. so I think he should have a say.Posted 8 years ago
Yes, of course. Non-denominational multi-faith type praying.
Any good tographers out there? Might be nice to have a few pics to bung in’t mag; challenge the domination of pics of Calderdale…
Q: Is this part of ‘mountain biking’? I mean, granted, we may lack the elevation, but it can be a little technical, what with steps and stuff, potholes, broken tarmac, glass, gravel, mud, etc. Not super-gnarly, dude, but probbly as challenging as a pootle on some moors and that. I mean, that Naughty Boy riding down steps on the last one; that’s as tough as you’ll find on a lot of ‘proper mtb rides’.
Or is this the missing link between mountain biking and commuting? ‘Free-commuting’? ‘Aggressive-C’?
Have we invented a new niche???
I need a completely new specifically designed bike, now.Posted 8 years ago
Of course there will be, LL!
It might be more of a ‘twelvses’ stop though, as there’s not a great deal between the Tower and Greenwich, unless you go off the beaten path a bit, as it were. I mean, there will be little shops along the way, but for nice snacks and coffees, etc, then Greenwich may be the first decent place we’ll come to. There’s a great little sandwich shop in Greenwich market, sells simple, cheap tasty stuff, dunno if it’ll be open on a Sunday. But I’ve no doubt you’ll be able to find something.
Borough Market is not open on a Sunday, I don’t think. And Brick Lane would be a bit of a detour, tbh.Posted 8 years ago
I’m afraid to say….
Yawn… Heard it all before, Flashy.
One day, you might think ‘ooh, I could right fancy a ride in That London’s famous London’, but it will be too late!
Well, it won’t really, but you get my point.
I don’t think I have a point, actually.
