Whereabouts in North London? That's my old stomping ground.

Born and brought up in Wood Green before being dragged out to the countryside.

It's a bit of a longer journey to the Ace Cafe than it was when I lived in London but it's still my favourite destination.

I know Wood Green (and Turnpike Lane) well. Go through them on my commute into work. I was born and raised in Ponders End, Enfield. Boy has this area changed in the last couple of decades!!
Lots of pubs have been demolished, lots of new housing has been built and lots of traffic has accumulated...

Still, there are some good bits left - Enfield Town still has some nice characterful pubs left!

Glorious Cornwall, where the rain is always warmer.

Yep, West Sussex for me too (Worthing). Always up for meets/ride outs.

Dodders: how are the Firestones doing? (sorry o/t).

Folkie, BadgerPolice & Orangeade, Hopefully we can organise a meet this year. Would be good to hook up and say hello to the neighbours!

Great idea. Maybe after Badgerpolice has got his new bike.

Whereabout in Hampshire are you?

Folkie, North Hampshire & Berkshire Borders. So definitely in hitting distance from Worthing & West Sussex.

Orangeade, Hello mate, The Firestones are doing OK......although haven't really had the opportunity to abuse them too much......... but so far so good. :-)
