    Anyone doing this? It's just a bit of fun and the streets are car free. I did it last year and promised Junior we would go this year. I shall be wearing my CC jersey if weather permits.

    See link http://www.londonfreewheel.com/default.asp

    Would be nice to see some of you out of towners if you can make it.

    I didn't make it last year because I didn't think Gabriel would fancy twentysomething odd mile trip in the child trailer. This year I might try to sort something out though. He'll be 4 by then (just) and may also have a bike with pedals!. I could pop him on the back of my bike and carry his bike in the trailer while we make our way there...
     
  5. You could hang your boys bike on the back of the trailer perhaps.
     
  6. I might try and go, although it's a long journey from Monmouth. Looks like fun.
     
  7. 120 miles @ 20mph = 6 hours, set off early enough.....

    I have signed up again. I will try to get there a bit earlier so that I can have a thrash around the streets before the crowds arrive, and then join in the fun with everyone else.

    Is it a set route or can you ride anywhere?

    set route. I'll be there with partner and son on my really bad mtb and he on an Isla bike. I'll take my airzound and will wear cyclingplus top (how retro)

    I'll be coming up, parking up at Twickenham and riding in from there.

    I fancy having a bit of a potter around other parts of our fair capital whilst I am there. Whenever I go to London I travel by tube so above ground travel will be novel.

    I've just signed up and am looking forward to it. I have some doubts, though, that National Express trains will let me take my recumbent tricycle to London. I'll have to just give it a go, though - presumably they'll be prewarned there may be a lot of cyclists that day.
