This Saturday, we tried a new route which started from East Dulwich
library and led all the way to Oxted, south of the M25. Some nice autumn
scenery, and some good country roads.
There are some decent challenges with
one hill at 20% gradient. Yes, one of those which makes you wonder why you're
actually doing this to yourself. And the end of the trip is the climb into Crystal palace.
The route is actually 42 miles, but I've added the extra 10 as I started in East London.

I would also like welcome Ben and Simons's new machines, some lovely carbon kit.
Ben used to ride an old steel Bianchi, and the difference was very visible as we struggled
in the early stages to follow his punishing rythm, a very good pace maker indeed. I never
really considered carbon myself, but after seeing them 2 comfortably whizzing past, it makes
me wonder now. Maybe next year. Here are some pics of the ride and the bikes!
