London cycle commuter needed for TV cookery show THIS Sunday [urgent]


I'm sure you will have received info on this.
Wondered if you could post to Greenwich Cyclists?

Looks a bit daft, but I reckon opportunities to show 'normal' cyclists in mainstream media should always be acted upon.

Happy weekend.

A friend of mine is looking for someone who cycle commutes in London to appear on a cookery show.

You would need to be available this Sunday (7 August).
You get to taste lovely FREE food.
You get to meet Ainsley Harriot.




RDF Television are filming a new cookery programme on Sunday 7th August at Greenwich Old Royal Naval College.  The programme is judged by Ainsley Harriot and a guest celebrity judge and is presented by Rugby Legend Matt Dawson and Celebrity Masterchef winner, Lisa Faulkner. 


We also have for each Cook Off, three members of the public who try the food and give their feedback.  For Sunday the 7th August we are looking for three people who leave their house early to commute to work each day.  If you cycle in even better!  This is because in one of the cook-offs on Sunday 7th August the category is ‘Breakfast on the Go’.  So we would like three people to give their feedback on the dishes that each family creates. 


We imagine you would need your breakfast to be quick and easy, to ‘grab and go’, especially if you are up early to leave for work and also I guess it needs to give you enough energy and nutrition if cycling, to get you to the office...not something that would send you back to sleep!!


If you think you fit the bill and are interested in food enough to give some feedback on the dishes our families create, then please do get in touch as we would love to hear from you.  Either call: 0117 970 7659 or email:

I want to load this onto the events page but there's no link... in desperation I'm dropping it here... 


Saturday 14th April - Bekesbourne Circular Ride - Including Richborough Roman Fort

Brought to you by Lewisham Cyclists: 
Meeting Points: Catford Station by ticket machine (Not Catford Bridge) at 07:45 for the 08:03 to Bromley South - where we will change onto the 08:39 direct service to Bekesbourne. ETA at Bekesbourne is 10:03 and the ride starts and finishes there.
Bromley South Station Forecourt at 08:10 for the 08:39 direct service to Bekesbourne.

Today's 43 mile long ride takes us to rugged and deeply indented valleys that lie south of Canterbury and then onto a much flatter plain - almost all the hills being in the first half or so of the ride (around 600 metres of ascent). We will pass through such villages as Pett Bottom , Elham & Lydenn ... the whole route is on lanes... many of them narrow and little frequented by traffic ... plus you may be relieved to learn that there are no off road sections !

The early start is due to the reasonably lengthy train journey and the fact that we plan to visit Barfreston Church.... a small , but perfect ecclesiastical jewel ... and Richborough Roman Fort .. where the Romans first landed and one of the last places they held (entry to Fort £4.90) - allowing perhaps 20 -30 minutes at Barfreston and an hour or so at Richborough.

We'll be looking to find a pub for a lunch stop - perhaps the Griffin's Head in Chillenden ..... and - for those that want to have a drink or two after the day's ride is done - then we'll find another pub, near Bekesbourne.
