- STW Southern Brighton-London-Brighton 'Gravel type ride' Thingy update 2nd Aug
Original thread here…
So I’ve sent an email out to those who originally showed interest, which IIRC includes:
DrP (he’s lush)
I know a few were just up for coming for a bit/leg of the journey, which is cool 🙂
I was hoping those who haven’t replied, or those who may NOW be interested, chirp up here!!
Just to recap:
about 135 miles
Brighton-London via the L2B road route
Traverse Clapham to Roehampton
London-Brighton via the L2B off-road route!
And that weekend it’s pride, so we can pretend that everyone has flocked to Brighton to cheer us on our return….kind of…

Grand for those in, and will surely repeat for those who can’t make it this time!
Glad to hear this! Sorry, the pulled muscle last week means I just haven’t had enough riding time to consider doing this. Really keen to join you on the next one and rip yer legs off! (joke)Posted 3 years ago
Have a good one fellas.m1keaMember
Wouldn’t be up for the whole route (race the next day) but could pootle down to the start and do a reasonable chunk of the road leg if that’s allowed?
Would turning up on my best plastic road bling and mamil attire be allowed?Posted 3 years ago
If not, I can keep the mamil gear and dig the winter bike out. It has guards and is made of Ti so is almost in keeping with the original equipment.
Of course this is ‘allowed’!!
I’m no fashionista, and strongly adhere to the ‘ride wot ya brung’ ethos..
We’ll of course be completing the route within the day, so there’ll be a ‘minimum reasonable speed’ so as to actually get round the route..but we’re not looking for Mike Hall type ground coverage!

Still keen here but need to work out some complicated logistics – bike in Hampshire, me in London, start in Brighton. Easiest scenario is to collect bike in advance and join the return off-road trip from London then take a train to Chi and ride back north. Having done the SDW last weekend (and been pretty cooked!) I’ll at least have the kit ready!Posted 3 years ago
A few options I suppose…
Where in hants is the bike?
You could, sometime this week, drop the bike at mine (a few train stops from brighton) or at Tim Ps, then simply come down from london and pick the bike up on sat?
I’m not sure what the talk of Chichester is all about?

Probably…… if i can ditch my mate who has invited himself round tonight .Posted 3 years ago
0550 from Havant , change at Chi then 0718 into BTN.
Scoot to pier head for 0730 , ride to that london on the plastic fantastic then head off at Roehampton toward Kingston and certain death , if i survive Kingston then its out Cobham way , Ockham , Guildford, Haslemere , Petersfeild and prob the train , but if I can all the way home . Its about 135miles so not to be sniffed at and I will have to take it steady for the first hour or so
