    This is the kind of spirit which kept Warmington On Sea free from tyranny for so many years.

    Alpine Mezzo now ready to roll for 2012 racing season. Sea-trials today reveal that 'mountain gearing' and coastal Force Six winds do together go. Kojak 115 psi tyres big improvement over softer Mezzo Cheng Shins.

    Cheng Shins are better than Dye Yung tires?

    You can get more air in a Kojak, but air is heavy, right? The Mezzo Dai Yungs didn't get a fair ride, on account of my lavish 18 expenditure on the Kojaks. I'm going to donate them to jefmcg who does like, a million miles a week on her Mezzo.

    Damn, Amsterdam sounds wonderful and I was really looking forward to the 1/4. However, my life is just a little complicated at the moment, and I'm not sure if i'll be in London much over summer. Definitely won't be here for April's gathering.

    Also means the snafu will probably have found a good home for her old tyres before i have a chance to take them off her hands. Thanks for the very kind offer though.

    Into every life a little rain must fall. Your bicycling chums are here to offer succour, high pressure tyres, and pies.

    We could play it safe and gather in Hyde Park and then see if Exhibition Road is now cycle friendly.

    The new Exhibition Road layout is a wonder, cars have to behave themselves, quite deceptively steep going up it on a bike though.

    Anything interesting down your way ?

    I have, but to be truthful, I did not stay long.
    Croyden Aerodrome, is it still there, worth a visit ?
    Southwark / The shard / Bermonsey area perhaps (there is a musician, Nigel of Bermonsey, any relation ?) ?

    Southwark you say? What is there down Greenwich way? I took the Thames Clipper from the south bank down there the other day, and thought it might be pleasant to do that; whack the bikes on the boat (2000 horse power with twin stage turbo-chargers and 27 knots- Oh God!) hop off at Greenwich and pootle back.

    Clipper takes Oyster cards.
