    A ride that's been done many times but currently a lot of the route has a relatively new road surface and the speed bumps haven't been put back in on Box Hill as yet.

    So 20th Sept, yes it's a Thursday, at 9am at Hyde Park Corner and we'll follow the ORR. There will be a stop for lunch at the Compasses in Gomshall. Only two big hills, Shere and Box, and almost 100 miles long (we're only doing Box Hill the once)

    GPS to be posted later.

    Yep - put me down for this, please. Might intercept you as you come into Richmond Park, though...

    Provisionally. Depends on whether my boss is looking favourably at me clashing leave with a close colleague.

    Possibly in. Might see if I can get two days off (the nocturnal ride to Southsea is the following night)...

    Ok important date change, it's now on the 19th Sept rather than the 20th! Could a Mod please change the title? Cheers

    Oh dear. As Ian says it's just a free day. I'm hoping to do an imperial century every day that week if anyone is up for another ride
