    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...

    London to Shoreham via the Downs link?

    I mapped out a route from London to Shoreham mostly following the Downs link trail. I ride it last weekend and it's a belter! A lot of it is "off road", but we're talking cinder track rather than muddy fields here and I was fine on 28c road tyres. I'd really like to ride it again in company and...

    Morning All. There is an article on the BBC site https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-48125731 saying that the London Marathon organisers had a pace maker running the race in 7.5 hours in order to make the race more inclusive. Those going at that pace were apparently insulted for going...

    This is a follow on to the ghost sign tour we did in 2015 which mainly toured some of the better ghost signs south of the river. This time, we head north - scary for some, comforting like a well worn saddle for others. But well worth it for some excellent pieces of history. Subject to final...
