    A ride some cyclechat friends have done in the past and might want to do again
    following the same route as the November L to B vintage car run
    route here; no Ditchling beacon involved; tea/coffee/ breakfast stop in Crawley.

    The commercial vehicles leave Crystal Palace 7-9 am

    We could meet at Streatham Common petrol station opposite Sainsburys on the A23 junction with Streatham Common Southside
    say 7.30 for a 7.45 start
    and cycle in and amongst the Historic Commercial Vehicles

    any expressions of interest would be welcome.

    speed; extremely sociable

    Traditionally followed by fish and chips in Brighton [on the beach if the weather is good enough]

    I've caught the train back to London and as numbers have been small never had any trouble getting the recumbent on the train.

    The small print, just as a reminder: This is not a formal ride under the auspices of any club. We will be just a bunch of friends on a ride together and my role will be simply to guide you round a route. As such, you will be riding under your own insurance.

    as its the first time i have posted a ride any pms for my phone number etc
    are welcome
    as are a hints and tips on any aspect of ride organisation/etiquette

    Hey Bob, I reckon I could be there too. Never had my picture taken so much as riding alongside you to Brighton last year since I won Mr Universe some years ago.

    Anyone tell me a easy place to park for free near East Croydon, maybe Crystal Palace on a Sunday for the day?

    Intending to meet you at Streatham. I hope we are not then heading back ⏫ to Crystal Palace.
    Might be accompanied by a couple of unknown others.
