    Trains from London to Newbury

    I need to travel, with bike on Saturday next from London to either Reading or Newbury. I note the comment on the NR website that cycle reservation is necessary. I don't recall this when i last travelled on GWR (a few years ago ) from Swindon and Reading into London. My plans, as always are...

    England : London Role Call Please! London Sunday Ride 23rd Feb - City of London Boundary Dragons

    An impromptu ride led by myself. It's a short ride which I may embellish with a couple of extras, but still probably on about 10-12 miles max. Meet at Hyde Park Corner (by the Royal Artillery Memorial) at 9.30am, leaving as soon as the Horse Guards have passed (usually about 9:45am). There'll...

    London crap

    As a northerner enticed to London many many moons ago, and still in love with so much of it, I really shouldn't do this. And it will of course play into the hands of some, but on seeing this plugged in the often bonkers too cool by half Londonist I really can't help it...

    Sunday London Ride: The tenth anniversary edition. 12th January 2020

    The eagle-eyed amongst you will have noticed that January 2020 will be the tenth anniversary of the Sunday London Ride (and a CycleChat thread running to over 500 pages). It would be rude not to celebrate the occasion, so I'm proposing a ride on 12th January. Not a themed ride, but a gold old...

    I am trying to take my training a little more seriously and on weekends I get out to Surrey for some long rides, but are there any routes in London which do not involve stopping and starting at traffic lights ever two minutes in London? i am based in archway and work centrally and could put in...

    Cycling through London.

    Hope this is the right bit of the forum, apologies if not: I'd like to (try and) cycle from Chertsey Road in Twickenham to The Strand and maybe from there Regent Street/Oxford Street/Piccadilly and back again. AA route planner makes it look fairly simple, A316/A4 and possibly Thurloe...

    How do you all commute into central london?!

    Hey Guys, Long time no post! I've been cycle commuting for a few years now, but a change in job means I now have to cycle a new route. Up to now I've had a trusty (cheap!) Carrera TDF fitted with full length mudgards & pannier rack (although I did upgrade the wheels to fulcrum racing 7's and...

    The hell that is London

    Coming home on the tube during rush hour after a meeting, a bloke saw my crutch and started getting up to give me his seat. I stopped him halfway and said no it's fine, really - I'm ok. He sat there for about 15 seconds, then got up saying no I'm sorry I just can't. Sit down. London - the...

    England : London The Spooky Sunday London Ride - 18th August

    Be afraid. Be very afraid. We'll be visiting some of London's most haunted places to hear tales of misery and grief. If we're really lucky (or unlucky) we might meet a ghost or two along the way. We'll most likely be heading north (so there will be a hill) then east. The route will be...
