If I get over my cold I may cycle the whole 36k there and home again although I would feel a bit of a fraud!

quite a good number of Kingston Wheelers but can't be precise, it's like herding bloody cats  :)
I'm with the Kingston Wheelers group, aiming to ride a 200k to the pub.

Is the Kings Head au fait with letting bikes into rooms?

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 lunched with Mr & Mrs Pountney last week. That ride did crop up in conversation.

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.
