  • Doesn't explain the complete lack of Twister bars either though!
  • Creme Eggs are so the season before last.....Wispa Gold is de rigour this season, dar-link image
  • 'Coz it matches the Pirate kit better? image

  • Its  a no from me for tomorrow. image

    Have a good ride - can't wait to hear about it.  And anyway Meldy bars are the best.

  • Soup - you can ride there. It's not that much further than from my house image

    ppppppffffftttt!!!  <cough, splutter>
  • Looks a perfect day for a ride out there.  Wish I was going.  Have fun all.

  • I think LN should get the Pirate 'wooden spoon' for being the best stirrer!!
    I'll be leaving in a mo!
  • Has Dustboy finished faffing yet?

    I have made muffins and will be leaving soon.
  • We were well treated! Only the half hour faff!! image
    Cracking ride, I really enjoyed that. Thanks for being patient (again!), I am getting better! Thanks for the ride and the cheeseburger Dusty! Fabulous muffins from UC at the end. Alas, no Ferret biscuits!
    I must remember to pack more fuel next time!
    Good to meet Smiffy, AH, and Lord H with Dan at the end!
    Barley, make an appointment to see the quack next week!! In the mean time keep taking the pills and rubbing the cream in! The rash will soon go!! <wonders what Schmunks has been doing to him!> image image
  • Fabadoobs ride everryone.

    Yes, Barley, make an appointment on Monday!

    And great to meet Lord H and Dan and brill to see Ultracaz image

    Smiffy - the merchandise arrived back safely and is adorned with L plates. It'll be a little bit pirate-ified by the time J sees it on Monday.
  • Almost came up to find you all for post ride fuelling but, despite wearing several more layers than I would have done if I'd been pedalling and having the heating on and turned up high, I was fffffffreeezing so went to bed instead.

    First cold of the season image

  • Really would have liked to join you all today but looks like Saturdays will be difficult this winter. What happened to Barley or is it best not to know? !
  • His usual foot injury that has been going on a year, but refuses to see a quack about! Nothing serious, apparently!!
    We'll all have to nag him Gladys!
  • Barley has to make an appointment with the clinic!!

    That was great fun and thouroghly satisfying. Many thanks to Dusty for organising the ride(even though he cut it short to avoind Winterthingy hill under the pretense of having to get back!!! image )

    Looking forward to some more editions image

  • Sounds like I missed a great ride and glad it went well, despite Barley's foot. 

     I can't believe Dusty wimped out of Bar Hatch Winterthingie.  Burgers calling no doubt. image

  • He claimed he was late for getting home, funnily though once back he had time for a burger!!
  • and chips ... and a faff!
    Although I, for one, was glad to cut it short this time!! image Still 33 odd miles though and 800m of climbing, apparently!

    Not as hard as the last ride then. image

    So that would have been  23 miles, plus 33 plus another 23 miles back - wooden spoon beckons I think LN. image
  • That'll be your regular Saturday soon.

    ETA followed by a run. image

  • LN - could you post me the route you used to Surrey please?  Thank you muchly - can do it on FB if its easier/more private.

  • You have FB mail. Going up the B2033, where the route ends is lovely intro as you go past the golf courses.
  • Got it ta - I'll that a go before too long. image
  • Of course it was great to meet Prince Seigfreid too but I couldn't spell his name... image

    Oh Trogs, would have been great to see you. Hope you're feeling better.
  • Newlands Corner is such a great venue to start a ride - and finish. I vote for more starts and finishes there. And i'd still love to do a ride for you all from around my home patch, the South Downs from Winchesater-ish. Beautiful, more hills than Surrey, but none of them as brutal or long. So good early season IM training.

    Will post some poss dads when I've got my diary. image

    Newlands works for me, though I'm normally late.

  • I like Newlands too.  Bacon butties are fab, plenty of carparking (free), great view to start with.  Shame there is nowhere indoors for teas if its cold but otherwise perfect.
  • Dot tell me Barlos STILL has not sorted his foot out?
