that would be very handy because that's where we meet for beer and dinner at around 6-ish, before moving on somewhere quieter as local yoof comes in for a disco

a bit of both really...KWAC is planning a 200 DIY route via Lasham and Amesbury - the first half of our spanking new 300. We envisage working up a powerful thirst.

ACH (and other London AUKs) welcome to join us.

Interesting to note there is no 200km calendar ride in the Thames Valley -ish area during February 2017 (KVR is now early March, and Blacksheep is on sabbatical).

So maybe this event will appeal to some southern RRTYers?

I am sure I was able to bring my bike into the hotel bit but can't remember if it was allowed in the bedroom last time - think it was and they are good rooms,

Have a ~180k route planned: A nice run up to brekki at Hurstborne Priors, a couple of pints at Bradford-on-Avon and another quick couple somewhere in the Wylye Valley.

Whats the dress code for this sort of get together: cycle clothing, civvies or a mix of both? Also wondering whether to carry a pair of trainers or stick to cycle shoes (mtb spd type)

Ah, there speaks a man who has not experienced Salisbury on a Saturday night...

I would bring nothing that you will miss and anything you can brush off when dry.

I've just booked a room further out of town. Is there somewhere safe to leave a bike outside JDs? Ive got a cafe style lock but don't fancy carrying anything heavier.

We have previously left out bikes chained together outside by the river and not lost any as yet.

I hope we will adjourn to the nice quiet  small pub (with the spooky hand in a case) down the road when the music gets too loud?...Like 2 years ago.

Starting from Kingston Bridge for a 200k to Salisbury:- Sarah, Richard, Gavin, Chris, Pete.

Thanks for organising it Postie. Weather was kind to us. I rode about 212 miles in total. Great kick-start  to the year's Audax riding, (for those like me who need it), otherwise just nice to chat cycling and ride calendar planning with like-minded folk, over a beer and nice curry later. :)
