"Hello potential long riders, I'm afraid I'm not going to lead a ride tomorrow (26 Nov), I've picked up a cold and as I'm only a man I cannot risk 9 hours out in the cold, unlike some of you, I'm just not that robust. Normal…"

"Easy to bail out at Woking, trains frequent and only 25 mins to Clapham, 30 to Waterloo (ish). We also pass near Guildford, 30 mins to Waterloo fro there too."

"Hello The next iteration of this series of rides will be on Sunday 12 Nov, 07:30 from Cadence. We will visit the desolate Medway valley and Isle of Sheppey. Not quite as rural as my last ride, but flatter and should be quicker.  Clearly it will…"
