Frank Cubis' funeral

Anyone else attending this in Ruislip? I'm hoping to ride there but if anyone else is riding and knows the way to Ruislip I would appreciate riding with you. Otherwise it'll be public transport and I might have to start my journey before bikes are allowed on trains.

Just watched the Tour highlights - sad to hear to about Chris Boardman's mother :(

Ended up two of us rode there - myself and PvT - with the KPRC having joined them at Kingston Gate, Richmond Park. Two more, Dave and Robyn, were at the funeral itself.

Cheers to PvT and James from the Bec for towing me back home (well at least to Weston Green where I called in on my Mum for a much need cup of tea!)

Whilst going out was a better route in terms of roads than coming back, I still don't ever want to ride that way again - the roads made Surrey look smooth and well maintained! And as for the traffic - glad it wasn't rush hour. Mind you it was amazing having a police escort of 5 motorbike riders and a car for the cortege following the hearse to the crematorium :shock: We had a rolling road block with us and anyone who got into any gaps in the ride were firmly pulled over and told to wait until the back marker car came past :mrgreen:
