edited July 2013 in Commuting chat
Riding around Richmond Park in the sunshine and naturally enough thoughts turned to beers at the Roebuck. So who's in and when? Do we want a Saturday or a Sunday? I'm away from the 24th of July so obviously think we should go before that. I've only put July down for now.
Last time Simon AH made it from Wales, never to be heard from again, and dragged Redvee along and Rolf made a special trip all the way from Yorkshire. Can that be beaten?

    Sounds a lovely idea I could make all bar the 14th though some I may end up being late, since I finish 4.30pm ish if i work Sundays.

    Yes, lots of people head to Richmond Park with their bikes so it kind of makes sense in that respect. It's a nice pub with a good selection of ales and there is plenty of space outside for blokes on bikes with a great view. Quite a few of us live over that way. But as Roger says most importantly it's close to me so I can have a skinfull and fall through the park on an off road path to get home afterwards.
    Give it a go, you might enjoy it.

    The only two days I can play are 20/21st cause of working on the rest of the days suggested but now I'm pootling along the Great Weston Ride on 21st. In the words of Theo ''I'm out!'
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    I've voted for the 27th/28th but appear to be the only one! Doing the Dunwich Dynamo on the weekend of the 20th so that's defo out, and this weekend too busy. Hope to see some of you anyway..........

    I'm in for 20/21st

    For those complaining about the location - nothing to stop you organising another event at your preferred venue...
    Pannier, 120rpm.

    I did last year but there really aren't enough people to make it worth diluting over 2 or 3 separate events....

    Hopefully I'll make one of them. Not drinking though, in "training" for London ride 100... 9lbs lost this month so far due mainly to giving up Alchol but also a stomach virus which was good for 3lbs....

    If you leave now you could make it for the 20th. Will you wear your Dynamo kit for the occasion?

    I could do the last 2 dates as I have a holiday this week and then and doing the Dunwich Dynamo next weekend- no one else here coming along?

    Would be good to meet some like minded (abeit faster!) peeps!
    RIP commute...
    Sometimes seen bimbling around on a purple Fratello Disc or black and red Aprire Vincenza.

    Erm, I would, only I shredded it a bit by taking a dive on an Alpine descent on Sunday!

    Ouch, that doesn't sound very pleasant. Hope you're ok.

    There is a bar (stocked with local ale/cider/lager if relevant) every night.

    Tempted but £1600 seems expensive with "tented accomdation" do they have beds in the tents! Is the bar included in the price?

    Well the highest number of votes are for the 20th, but it's only 4 votes. Should we? Or would people rather do it another day?

    Not for me I'm affriad, morning is a London Ride 100 traing ride, with an early start, followed by Lambeth County Show in Brockwell Park. Plus I'm not drinking until about 5pm on Sunday 4th August.... A date in August would work better for me.

    I'd like to join you, but realistically I think it's unlikely I'll be able

    I think we should wait until August by the looks of it. Preferably the latter half for me, but certainly after Sketchley is back on the booze. He should be thirsty as hell by then. Does somebody want to start a new thread with possible dates as I won't be around?

    I did it this year - no the bar isn't included. Yes it was worth it, and I've signed up for next year too.

    Confused, this year's ride is in September?
