If I don't have enough todo I'm thinking of knocking up a tee design, so we have something to keep from the event. I wont be selling them, but will give you guys the design so you can get yours printed in the colour and size you want. was thinking of using http://www.spreadshirt.co.uk/

What cha think?

right then guys, we need to start making plans for this now.


I will speak to the organisers at work and get a definate meeting point (although i think it's Clapham common) then we need a time (try for 8am??) then we need to decide what the general feeling is for when we arrive?  are people hving a beer and then going back home, or going to bed down at a Travel lodge and make a night of it?

i haven't thought to much about what to do once we gt there  :-\

have been sending emails to the difc people to try and get exact details (still haven't received my info pack and wanted to check it wasn't lost in post)
as far as I now it's starting in clapham common though. have looked into public transport my way (which is pretty much non-existent esp. on a sunday) and best time I can make it is going to be around 8:30 - I need to drive to slough and dump car there, then train it to paddington @ 6:46 and ride 6 miles through war-torn london village to the start point. any remaining rioters will probably be tucked up in bed so should be safe enough  ;D
I'm flexible on getting back as have booked the monday off - if anyone is headed back up that way & can accommodate me & my bike then I'm more than happy to chip in for petrol etc, otherwise can just see how the night goes & get the train back the next day  :daumenhoch:

Just had an email from the organisers - turns out this is starting from tooting bec common now instead of clapham
For anyone in Brighton we'll be finishing at Hove No 1 Lawn, adjacent to the King Alfred Leisure Centre and alongside Hove Street

On the plus side this is a shorter route than going from clapham, but seeing as public transport is so shit that just means I have to ride further to get to the start line  :tickedoff: from what I can see I'm not able to take my bike on the tube down there from paddington

I gotta catch a train on sat, and stay over in town, then ride, then stay over in Brightion, then a train home to Dorset. I reckon I'll be needing new clothes on sunday!

Whats everyone taking spares and parts wise?

I'll be taking my 'cool tool', a mini pump and a couple of tubes (+ beer money for afters)

Pickle will probably need about 5 chains as he usually snaps at least one an hour

You may wish to consider a large tub of arse cream for when you've finished - unless you've got that seat padded

Okay, for those that have registered through the www.doitforcharity.com website you should've got a document emailed back to you containing all the info.

Basically the route is laid out with pink arrows all along the way.  at about half distance there is a pub where we all get free lunch!  :daumenhoch:  but basically it's not a race, so we stop whenever we need to for breaks and water/energy drinks  :)

we need to all be at Tooting bec by 9am so we can all register and set off.  my work mates and i will be there and we're probably going to drive my mates car down on the saturday and park it up, then i'll drive back and we will use his estate car to travel back on Sunday evening.

that sounds like a good plan rob -  except by the halfway stage they might have started serving dinner
do you think there'll be any room for a +1 on the way back? can offer petrol money/cuddles by way of compensation

managed (after sending a few emails!) to find out my rider number, so I've had a mess about with photoshop and put a raceplate design together  :daumenhoch:
still got room for a few more sponsors' names and have been badgering a few people at work who already promised to support

Jaymz hope you don't mind I nicked a couple of your designs for that 'factory-rider' look  ;D

Cant believe this madness will be starting in just 3 weeks  :idiot2: :idiot2:

I've managed to find some cheap digs, got a cheap rail ticket too (5.55 back to victoria on Monday)
just need to find somewhere to park in london now and hope that no-one burns out the car while I'm away

whereabouts are you coming from spike?
