Marlow Loop (change from Oxford and back due to bad weather) ~ Advanced+

CHANGE OF PLAN

Due to weather forecast for heavy rain en route and in Oxford tomorrow, this ride has been changed to a loop of Marlow. There is also a change from the start time of 7am to 10am. Meet at the usual place.  Drinks at the H&H in Sheen afterwards. 

_______________________________________________________

This ride will be rescheduled for 2-3 weeks. 

The route will be the same as the Lord Mayor's route from the Summer.  We will ride  to Oxford, where we will stop for something to eat and then prepare for the ride back to London!!

It will be cold, so remember to wrap up warm and lots of socks and overshoes. 

You must be of Advanced Level to participate in this ride. If you are new to RPCC, please contact the organiser(s). 

As usual, we meet in front of the coffee shop by Roehampton Gate.

Please remember to bring snacks, inner tubes, lights and money. 

If you are unable to attend, please alert the host(s) or amend your RSVP accordingly. Failure to do will result in you being omitted on future rides.

    Is this ride still going on? to oxford and back or just to oxford with train back?

    February 1, 2014

    • Martin C.

      Oxford and back. The trains are not running well from Oxford that day, so if you don't fancy such a long ride, then Richard is leading a Marlow Loop. Though Jas you would be welcome to join us on this epic ride :)

    • Jas

      I'm secretly happy the trains aren't working :) will be a great ride.

    Shite guys, I feel like I am gone be the underdog in this ride. What has happened to all the brave hearts advanced members?

    January 29, 2014

    • Lee

      But I do feel it's lost something without the others to meet up with in Oxford.

      Good to have you on Board!!!!!!

      January 28, 2014

    • Martin C.

      Only one question, does anyone know any good burger joints in Oxford?

      January 28, 2014

  • Lee

    Sounds great. Out of interest if we leave early what time will the earlier group leave?

    January 27, 2014

    • Vito

      I concur, 7 a.m. is good. We can a croissant and cappuc on the way.

      January 28, 2014

    • Martin C.

      7am it is. I need to know who is on the 7am return ride. Please let me know.

      1 · January 28, 2014

  • Martin C.

    In respect of the recent legendary Brighton and back ride - can I find out who would be interested in a return journey by bike as well?

    January 27, 2014

    • Martin C.

      Of course if there is interest in a return journey there would be an earlier start - probably at 8

      1 · January 27, 2014

    • Martin C.

      Just getting interest first

      Stirer...

    • Matt C.

      Tis because I care Eric!

  • Richard of Y.

    Looks like we're split 50/50 on the timing so how about two groups? I like stopping for lunch so the more speedy guys will probably catch up anyway. If the other three email me to confirm they want to do a 9am start, I'll get four supersaver train tickets. If not, we can try to meet up at Oxford and sort out tickets there. Either way, I'll let Martin know before the day so he knows who's doing what.

    January 23, 2014

    • Richard of Y.

      Thanks for the confirmation, Martin, and your assurance as to the cohesive nature of the ride! I'll be there at 10am.

    • Fastas A.

      Splinter groups taking off in RPCC, well I never.. ;) Cycle back, then no issues...... ;)

      January 27, 2014

  • Richard of Y.

    Yes - unless your powers of persuasion are better than mine! (Stirrer! ;-))

    1 · January 26, 2014

  • Martin C.

    There are no plans to cycle back due to the daylight hours. I would suggest booking trains in advance. The leaving time remains the same at 10.00am.

    January 22, 2014

    • Vito

      realistically, at what time do you recon we should arrive in Oxford? I like to take the train around 4-6 ish pm.

      1 · January 22, 2014

    • Martin C.

      I think leaving at 10 you would be more then able to catch the train by 6 ish

    *Sadly* I'll be in Morocco cycling up some mountains...

      January 13, 2014

  • Eric L.

    Won't cycle to Reading on the way back this time!

    January 13, 2014

  • Eric L.

    Matt, thought you didn't like trains back? I assume you'll be cycling back?

    January 11, 2014

    • Matt C.

      Eric, you misheard. I said I didn't like trains back with you! But as you are not going……Hahaaha!

      January 11, 2014

    • Eric L.

      Not sure. I'll think about it
