NOTE CHANGE OF START/FINISH LOCATION. Meet 9.30 at Southwark Needle, on south east corner of London Bridge, top of Duke St Hill, adjacent to London Bridge station. Ride into Central London, look at some of the Christmas lights. Plan is to get to extend the westward reach of rides to Notting Hill. Also will take a turn past Parliament to celebrate the first election with both sexes voting (anniversary Dec 14th). Wikipedia says “The British General Election on the 14 December 1918 was held just a month after the Armistice. Under the terms of the new Representation of the People Act, the electorate now included most women aged over thirty and all men over twenty-one. A special provision also lowered the voting age to nineteen for those who had served in the war. The new electorate, at 21,392,322, was nearly triple what it had been in the previous election of December 1910 (7,709,981).” Often referred to as “The Khaki Election”. Finish 1pm back at London Bridge. There will be a coffee stop somewhere. Should be quite a ride! But all at our usual easy pace. Everyone welcome.
