15 riders for a late October ride with grey skies and a far from perfect weather forecast. But the rain held off and we had a great ride from Peckham to Dulwich and back. Outward by Dawsons Hill. Views of London skyline a bit hazy but still complemented by the fine Autumn colours this year (see photo). Discovered coming off Dawsons hill that one of the bikes had rather poor brakes. Found this before the descent so no injuries! Longish stop at Pavilion Cafe in Dulwich Park saw both front and back brakes rendered effective. Next stop Herne Hill Velodrome. Always makes a huge impression on people who have never been there. Lots of activity . Big groups training on the track and a large platoon of younger cyclists on the mountain bike trail. Back via Greenway and Camberwell Grove. Route at http://goo.gl/mMbQZ7. Next ride not until 2nd Saturday in November (14th) starting Canada Water.
