Sorry - not in the area - but take money and an extra layer for the tube and if it does turn out dodgy - just use that instead ?

Thanks, that may be the plan but I don't live that near the tube, all overland trains.... which I've just heard are up the spout again!....

Aaaaah - b*gger !!

Good luck !!

May be worth checking out the commuting section on Bikeradar forums - a lot of riders use the embankment so they may have an idea of the pavement conditions out that away ?
