    Best if you change your username to something more like your real name. If you decide to join, this makes processing your membership easier. Otherwise just turn up on time and hope the sunshine lasts

    I think you need to inform the membership secretary (+SallyB) for insurance purposes and make yourself known as a guest tomorrow.

    You can join this as one of your 3 "try before you buy/join" rides. You have to do this or the intro ride before you can be accepted as a member.

    Glad to see that 7 of you have signed up. Hopefully we will get some more as these sessions are often fully booked. The weather forecast looks a bit damp. In case you were wondering, the session will go ahead but do bring suitable clothing, especially as we will be standing around and talking a bit and cycling relatively slowly. Do cancel your attendance if you can't make it and please try and make your username something like your real name as that helps with admin if you decide to join. Any questions in advance, please ask.

    intro rides are generally the first Saturday of the month. Otherwise try group skills on different Saturdays or Thursday evenings

    I have my Android phone, but no Garmin, with me and just went through the steps and I think it should work.

    I have an older Garmin (810) and can get routes onto it from my phone. Download from RwGPS to your phone and the open with Gamin Connect and you should be able to Bluetooth it to the Garmin

    If your work laptop recognises the Garmin, download the file onto it directly

    Depends partly on what you mean by "normal bike" and mainly how fit you are. The key thing is are you (as above) "Capable of riding 25 miles at an average speed of at least 12 mile per hour, with several steep hills and only brief stops." This ride does a loop out of London so its only fair on the group as a whole if we set a minimum speed. So you would need to be considerably fitter to manage the ride on a full suspension mountain bike or a folder than on a road bike but you certainly don't have to have a road bike.
