    I plan to be there (weather looking okay). But looks like a low turnout.

    I'm sickening at present but hope to see you 9.30 HPC. Mr. Cube will have company on the lumpy bit.

    A nice to start the year. A small, but perfectly formed group headed up to Ally Pally for breakfast - their interpretation of a Full English was a plate of beans with sausage, egg and bacon on the side.

    Thanks to @Nick Saddlesore for leading us on some new (for me) roads and in particular the comedy off road section. After we left Nick and @RoubaixCube , @topcat1 and I charged back down to The City before we went our separate ways . When I say ‘charged’, I mean Dave charged and I hung onto his wheel. Cheers Dave!

    A shade over fifty miles all told for me.

    Nick took us on a scenic route from hpc to Ally Pally which included some mild off road.We visited the George Michael memorial garden outside his house along the way.Then on the way down from the Pally a rider cut across me so i gave him cheery hello :thumbsup: which you can see on facebook when it loads shortly (est 5 hrs). Thanks guys

    That's not COR, that's a 'Green Walkway'.

    One of the platforms built for the Northern line extension which never happened.
