    Update re: Selhurst to Amex ride.

    Preliminary date - SUNDAY 10th JUNE 2018

    There will be two choices of ride, and Bold Seagull is the man when it come to arranging the route . The choices will be:
    Amex to Selhurst to Amex (104 miles)
    Selhurst to Amex (52 miles)

    I am listing all those who have declared an interest so far below. Could you all pm me email addresses, mobile numbers etc. so that I can have everything in one place?

    Last time we all targeted £250 on Just Giving, and raised a substantial amount (Uncle Spielberg will be able to say how much!) It would be great if as many of us as possible could do that again!

    Uncle Spielberg also has contacts to the Palace branch of REMF supporters - there was a good turn out from them last time. Hopefully this can be repeated.

    Spread the word - it would be nice if we made this a really big deal!

    Me.

    That's (potentially) 21 so far!

    Should be fun.
    This sounds good. I would probably do the shorter one, though, purely because I wouldn't want to end up in Croydon.

    I imagine @pb21 will be interested.

    Assume there is no risk of this clashing with the club's official ride?

      They both end up at the Amex!

      Good point about the official ride, we'll have to check that.

      Anyone planning a ride Eastbourne/Beachy Head way tomorrow, be aware that the women's tour of Sussex is taking place their tomorrow - http://www.tourofsussex.com

      We have two club rides going over that way. One is planning to watch some of the racing I believe, the other one (which I plan to be on) will come through that way later, via Ditchling Beacon, so we'll probably miss it.

      Could be an event worth a watch for anyone in the area. It's lovely round that way.

      I need to stop enjoying riding for a while. I'm shocking up any sort of slope now. When I started out it was all about the fitness, so I battled up some steep ones until I owned them. Then I just went exploring, mainly in the flat lands.

      Had no idea there was a London to Brighton taking place today. Thought it was earlier in the year. Absolute result going up Ditchliing Beacon today as it was a closed road

      Then the cafe stop at Sussex Uni was another gate crashing affair as turned out to be welcome weekend and so extra food stalls set up there.

      All in all a cracking ride today in perfect conditions and with a nice group. Only blot was a rear puncture at the top of Beachy Head but soon fixed and home safe.

      I was hoping my training regime would be showing some signs of results by now, but it still seems like a bit of a slog at the moment.
      Granted today's roast dinner would have made an elephant sluggish so I really shouldn't be too surprised.

      I spotted twice on a nothing much slope after loads of rest waiting for a train to pass. The second time involved coughing and retching and was pretty grim.

      Blimey that's rough, doesn't sound like fun.
