    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 between 15 and 20 miles and will finish at a central(ish) cafe at around 1.30pm, give or take.

    Meet at Hyde Park Corner (by the Royal Artillery Memorial) at 9.30am, leaving as soon as the Horse Guards have passed (usually about 9:45am). There'll be a quick comfort break part way round, but it's best if you use the facilities in Hyde Park (you'll need 20p) before you rock up to the start.

    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 us round a route. As such, you will be riding under your own insurance.

    Anyone interested?

    In the diary - thanks rb - will surely do if not called away - though should surely really be done at night?

    That's the plan - see the regular SLR thread.

    Just giving this a little bump. Route has been planned and it comes out at 15 miles, give or take. That may change once the recce is done, but it won't be much different. We're not heading north after all, so there aren't any hills really. We finish in Victoria Park.

    Recce done. Only a couple of minor route alterations needed. We'll be finishing at ViewTube which has just re-opened after its change of owner. All newly decorated with a nice menu too. It's on the Greenway for those heading south and close to CS2 for going back into central London.
