The ride leader cryptically writes...

You can sleep easily, we have been very industrious designing a ride for March, that will either be loved or hated, break records or be a catalogue of disasters.

We will have to see how the chemistry works on the day, or there'll be glazed expressions all round, as we find ourselves in a pickle. Don't turn your nose up at the chance to come and explore the very fabric of South London's industrial heritage. To include pub stop for lunch,

Meet Sunday 29 March 2015 10:15am for a 10:30am start at Vauxhall Bus Station, SW8 (opposite railway station entrance) We will finish around 4pm. 

All welcome: no need to let us know in advance, just turn up with a roadworthy bike
