    Now that I'm a LON local, just wondering if there are any plans for another LON event?

    Will be in LON June 18 to 23 - if event planned would love to attend?

    Note: Will require prior authorisation from Cruiserette which might be tricky - still we all need to aspire towards something.

    There aren't any fixed events, they kinda just happen when someone comes over and wants to meet up

    I'm generally free most nights, Flashback is often OK. The other London regulars have been a little quiet, but I'm sure we can attempt to get them out of the woodwork ;)

    So which night is convenient?

    Those dates should work, but 21st would probably be best for me.

    OK Cruiser Elite let us know which night/s you are free and we will arrange something. Generally I am back in London by 7pm weeknights. Slightly earlier if I manage to leave work earlier. I'll let Flashback confirm his availability.

    OK if 21st looks to be the date I am sure I can make that work. We are staying at Park Plaza Westminster Bridge so let me know location and we'll try to be there.

    Does a lunch or mid afternoon catchup work for anyone? The night has gotten busy so I wouldn't be able to make the night time.

This will be followed by a rally in Parliament Square. Buses will be diverted or stop short of their destination in these areas. East London – On Sunday, from 06:30 until 14:00, a running event will start and finish at Homerton Road, Hackney. Buses will be on diversion or stop short of their normal destination in and around the Haggerston, Hackney Downs, Hackney Wick, Homerton, Victoria Park and Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park areas. The City – On Sunday, from 07:30 until 13:00, a road race will take place from St Paul’s Cathedral towards Bank via Mansion House. Buses will be on diversion or stop short of their normal destination in the Ludgate Circus, Blackfriars, Bank, Liverpool Street, Moorgate and St Paul’s areas. Central London – On Sunday, from 08:15 until 19:30, buses will be diverted or stop short of their normal destination in the Oxford Circus, Piccadilly Circus and Regent Street areas due to the closure of Regent Street for an event.
