After the last successful pub outing we suggested a summer Boris bikes picnic. I am happy to host this in the beautiful and fairly private garden on Tower Hill adjacent to Byward Street. I’m going to suggest Tuesday 5 July as the date, of course it won’t suit everyone but let me know if you might be able to come. And Chris, maybe you can invite your TfL contacts too. Thanks.
EDIT : If you are planing to attend the picnic then:

Hi Martin, Sadly, I will be away for the month of July, but the picnic setting sounds so lovely! It’s a wonderful suggestion.June 6, 2011 at 10:34 am #83987
Sounds like a great idea. It depends on the time though, as I’m not really available during the day.June 6, 2011 at 12:03 pm #83988
Hi Martin. Sounds great. I’m free that evening. I spoke to TfL press office this morning and mentioned the plan and they sound interested. Perhaps we should set up an Eventbrite event (it’s free) so that we can track who and how many people can come. What would you say the capacity of the private garden is?
Also, does any have ideas for how we handle food/drink? In Australia we might suggest each guest “bring a plate” (as in bring a plate of picnic food for everyone to share). Or we could try to collect money and buy a bunch of things in advance. Eventbrite can help with this.Don't forget to add your own signature! 1) Click your name in the top left (under Home once logged in) 2) Click Edit link on the left menu 3) Fill in "Your Forum Signature" 4) Click Update ProfileJune 6, 2011 at 7:33 pm #83989
In NZ, a long time ago, it would have been ladies a plate, gents a bottle. Perhaps everyone a plate, and a kitty for some wine / beer?June 7, 2011 at 3:19 am #83990
First,Thanks for your share!
Does Louis Vuitton have an outlet? Who really knows but you can find some really great deals whether you are looking for a LV authentic or replica.

Great, I need to book the date in the diary and then we can set up an online event. Watch this space.
Food – definitely bring and share. I can provide plates and glasses.June 7, 2011 at 8:21 pm #83993
Okay, this is confirmed, come from 6.30pm, and bring your picnic to share. The garden is on Byward Street adjacent to All Hallows Church, and next to the Kitchen, a very nice cafe.
Can you do an Eventbrite thing Chris?
Nearest docking stations are Lower Thames Street, Great Tower Street, Tower Gardens, and Crosswall. I wondered if we might all like to come with our bikes and get a group photo?June 8, 2011 at 9:39 am #83994
Crosswall is my local dock, I live round there so will try to make it but it depends whether I remember.
Sadly my Boris Biking days are over for now, as I have a new job in Bromley, which is a 45 minute drive at the best of times
On a side note, I saw someone riding a Boris bike in Bromley on Monday in the rain. Must be a record for the furthest spot from the coverage areaJune 8, 2011 at 1:05 pm #83995

Thanks Martin, this sounds a beautiful venue. I’d love to be there – Tuesday 5 July did you say?
I’d appreciate if someone (any volunteers) could please text email (or any other kind of communication) me nearer the time to remind me as I’m notoriously disorganisedJune 8, 2011 at 1:22 pm #83997

mit – crosswall is my local too, I’m in Trinity Square, we can’t live far away.
Everyone – yes, it’s 5 July from 6.30pm on Byward Street next to All Hallows church and outside the Kitchen (a nice cafe) in the garden. Inside if raining. Note it in your diary now, but there will be reminders on here.
claudia – so sorry you’ll miss this timeJune 9, 2011 at 7:52 am #83999
Great idea – will come if i am free!
