Sun 19th D Peter Gimber Top Golf - Watford - definitely not quaint Waterend Barn - St Albans - quaint and cheap Bean Here cafe - quaint and expensive Comment Car or Train assisted ride. Meet at 10.15 for 10.30 departure at the Park and Stride car park off Chaffinch Lane Watford (WD18 9QD) - Moor Park tube is about 2 miles away. If coming from Uxbridge on the train it’s best to change at Northwick Park. Ride is about 27 miles with substantial off road sections not all of which are paved. Hilly in parts with multiple opportunities for nobby lectures mainly in Latin.

Sun 9th D Peter Gimber Hubbub Cafe - Millwall’s answer to Pisa’s Field of Miracles Great Harry - Woolwich - JD Wetherspoon Greenwich Comment: A variation on the Jubilee Greenway walk/cycleway ride taking in the City and Isle of Dogs. We depart 10.30am sharp from the visitor centre, LIVERPOOL ST station main concourse - it’s on the left after you pass through the ticket barrier from the Met line. If starting from Uxbridge catch the 9.23am Met line train. The end of the ride (over Tower Bridge) will be heavily trafficked. We will return from ALDGATE Station where you will have to carry you bike down 2 flights of steps. We are unlikely to be back at Aldgate before 6 pm and therefore Uxbridge by 7:10pm. If you are coming on the ride please text me on 07838 130340 by Saturday 8th. The ride is over cobbles in parts, refreshments are scarce so bring a drink. We will be using the Woolwich Free Ferry to get to lunch. If the Met line is down (it’s not planned) the ride won’t happen - go to Uxbridge for 10am as normal.
