    Well then, we can pedal for a bit then stop when we want to look at things.

    Just to get this off the ground else it'll be Christmas before you know it (!!!) -

    would a Saturday in October work for many (if not all)? I'm thinking 15th, 22nd or 29th.

    not sure how i found myself on TE, but it's been useful

    Sounds like being at uni may limit your time, but as far as the distance goes, could you maybe come down by train? with bike of course!

    Hola there. I live 30miles from Lancaster in that famous northern seaside town with a big fat tower and donkeys on the beach. I used to live in Lancaster though...and I'm doing a Lancaster degree but at another venue.

    I'm not so familiar with Lancaster anymore, it being some 15yrs since I left but if you need any info about the area or wotnot just pm me.

    I might be able to manage a saturday in october..
    Will need advance warning to get reasonably priced train fare and not too early start, it takes over 5 hrs from here just to reach Euston...
    But an expedition to London sounds like a great adventure!

    22 October 2011?

    Thanks everybody who's responded - great to know there's quite a few UK TE'ers here. Shall we pencil in 22 October 2011 and see how many can make that? I'll send a PM to everybody who has posted to get people's attention!

    I'd love to come along to the meet in October, if that's ok? I'm in south London and would be happy to help out any organising.

    22nd October

    BUMP

    Lots of things trying to crowd it out, but I've still got 22nd October pencilled in! Will start working on a plan for the day.

    Could anyone who thinks they can make it on the 22nd let me know if they're coming into London by train - and if so - which station and what's the earliest possible time you'd be arriving?

    Some of you are coming quite a distance so I'm thinking we could start the "TE meet" by having lunch, then cycle round in the afternoon and hopefully get you all on your various ways back home at a reasonable hour?

    I've still got october 22 as TE day on my calendar and I'll be arriving by train to Euston. I could get there by 10 at the earliest, but that would mean a 5am start so closer to lunchtime would be better. Looking forward to seeing London from a different perspective and meeting up with you all!

    Hi,

    I still may be able to make that date.

    I'm not too keen on taking the train down with my bike
    Was any one else thinking of driving down?

    Just not sure about parking and stuff? Any of you Londoners have any advice/suggestions

    Cheers

    To be honest Mako, unless you're used to driving in London, I wouldn't recommend it. I do drive here and actually enjoy it, but to those unfamiliar with where things are and especially what lane to be in (and how, when and where to change into that lane you want!), then driving here is just a good way to spend hours lost and in tears... !

    I travel up and down the country by train with my bike and find it works pretty well.

    If you do decide to drive, Google NCP to find car park locations and prices. Once we've chosen a meet-up point, then you can decide which car park to aim for.

    hope that helps!

    Thanks for the advice!

    I have driven in London quite a few times but I don't exactly relish the idea. I guess it will depend on where everyone decides to meet up.

    As for the train I really don't like the idea of letting my bike out of my sight

    Don't you worry about it getting damaged?
