ACONS XMAS FAT BURNER

A few of us from the ACONS Facebook group (Audax Club Odds n Sods) are meeting up at 9.30am on Wednesday 27th December for an 80km ride from Ruislip (White Bear Roundabout). A second group, including LWL supremo Liam F, will join us at Rickmansworth as we pass through (meeting at Café Nero in Ricky from about 9am for a coffee). All welcome, an informal ride for like minded cyclists.

If HomeAloneBoredom > CrapWeather , I might well try to join you.

Is a lunch/11ses stop planned? Or just a MTFU no-stop 80km?

Apologies for not responding MattC. We spent some time discussing this on the ACONS Facebook page as the weather forecast was bad, leading to it being cancelled. I probably should have looked on here but, sadly, my father died that morning which changed my focus a bit!
I suspect/hope that you took a look at the weather and didn't show, my sincere apologies if you did.

No problem at all - Liam pointed me to your facebook page, so I was well aware of developments. You have to keep on your toes with the weather at this time of year!

Very sorry for your loss.
