What's with an Oxford Comma?

Yup it's that time of year again where we repeat rides for no good apparent reason.

Only sign up if you don't work on a Friday or any other day....

All usual terms and conditions apply.

The route is approximately 60 miles and we will take a train back to London.

    BTW I don't suppose anyone knows whether what I've done to my knee sounds like a normal side effect of cycling? I've been doing quite a few hills and yes my saddle is probably much too low. But even so not sure why just my left knee is hurting when I bend it? I guess it's really a symptom of not being 20 anymore coupled with being stupid enough to ride a Boris Bike.

      Do you wear cleats? If you do it might be cleats requires adjusting.

    I think this ride is jinxed - now I'm coughing and rain is forecast - but I'll come along to the park anyway

    This is starting to sound monotonous - I'm bailing out AGAIN. Had a nightmare past two days with a French translation file which vanished, so need to catch up on sleep. Need to get back on the bike soon :/

      I think I've caught whatever curse you've got. I was all geared up for today (even bought some Sainsburys chewy granola bars for sustenance) and bam my left knee is really hurting. Or perhaps it was stupid to cycle 9 miles on a Boris Bike yesterday. Those things are a curse in their own right!

    Perhaps I've been cycling too much or it's the 9 miles I did on a Boris Bike yesterday but my left knee is really hurting when I bend it. Probably not a good idea to cycle 60 miles just in case it's something serious

    Looks like curry and quiz has triumphed.

      Fraid not I have managed to double book myself, but will try to get to the park to see you off and give you a map card.

    What time do you estimate we'd be back in London?

    I ain't fit but I'm blessed with strong legs and this is a good way to get fit - 60 miles over reasonably-flat terrain, right? Any google maps link (convert it from gpx please!)

    so sorry, looks like something has come up for Friday and I can't make it. Have a great ride, everyone!

    Love to do this but not on a Friday, unfortunately. Any chance of a rerun? Btw what's this business about the Oxford comma? Bit highbrow, no? Then, I guess, you have to try to be when you're visiting Oxford, or Cambridge, for that matter.

    I'm doing the BHF London to Brighton ride tomorrow so distance shouldn't be a problem. Only issue is if there are lots of big hills on the route. Don't want to hold you guys up :-)

      @Claudia Well.........it would have been a lot easier on my road bike. My hybrid has 38c wheels with a lot of tread. I walked up all 4 hills, got a rear puncture 3 miles from Wivelsfield (fixed by the mechanics for just a fiver!), then the wind, heavy rain and cold arrived soon after. But hey I made it in about 7 hours and the weather in Briggton was lovely. Had a load of protein afterwards so not in as much agony today as I thought. But Blimey Ditchling is a killer!

      @Wai well I should be able to manage that with some encouragement ie kicking! As long as its just the one :-)
