    Seems like a good idea to me.

    Yep, date dependent of course. SW London preference for me, within wobbling distance of Wimbledon.

    Does the Roebuck work for people? Start at commute home time so people can stop on their way through? I'm fairly easy on dates, only got he 7th and 14th December booked at the moment, although I'm sure that will change.

    I'll try to make wherever, whenever, but Roebuck works for me (Erdinger :mrgreen: )

    I think we did that one last year, so we are only a couple of years behind.

    You're getting old(er).

    aren't we all!

    doesn't seem to be huge numbers so, and seem to be stettled on Roebuck (any lurkers please do shout!) would people be happy with Friday the 16th? or would midweek be better?
  • hopkinbhopkinb Posts: 6,068
    Friday 16th one of the 2 December days I definitely can't do. Roebuck is fine with me - I googled it - seems to be just beyond Richmond Gate? Do I need to bring a bike lock?
  • hopkinbhopkinb Posts: 6,068
    The other no no is the 13th.
  • itboffinitboffin Posts: 19,769
    16th blimey i'm not leaving my house save to get more wood for the fire from about the 8th until the 8th

    what about 15th? can folks make that? or move it one week earlier?
  • hopkinbhopkinb Posts: 6,068
    Prefer one week earlier.
  • veronese68veronese68 Posts: 23,446 Lives Here
    How about the 9th? That way we can be sure Boff is in hibernation.
    Or the 8th.

    irritatingly thats the one day I can't would people be happy with the 8th?
  • hopkinbhopkinb Posts: 6,068
    8th or 9th are both OK with me.

    Ta.
  • So are we semi settled on the 8th?
  • hopkinbhopkinb Posts: 6,068
    Seems so! Are the Roebuck and their regulars are happy with blokes in lycra tights and clumpy shoes clogging up their bar? Or should I see if I have some more "casual" kit?

    don't think they mind to be honest!

    Rick's been in there and nobody said anything so I'm sure you'll be fine. Talking of which is he coming? Maybe he's not allowed now he's married :wink:
    Seriously though, it's right by Richmond Park so they are used to cyclists I'm sure.

    Yes but with Rick's sheer physical presence they're so intimidated nobody dares object!


    seriously though I've been a few times and cycling kit is fine. do bring a lock though.

    Yeah yeah, I should be able to bring my hefty presence to bear. I have put on a few kilos ;).
