Winter Ballbuster 11th Nov

Come on then folks...who's up for the Ballbuster again this November?  Always a good end to the season and a chance to meet fellow Pirates!

It scares me enough every year to keep me training into November!

  • **. I was never looking at this thread, you ain't seen me, right?!**

  • You're doing that Molehills race ...you cant do everything you know!

  • I'm in, just for a change.
  • You might have a piratey support crew on bikes somewhere !!

  • Be great to have support to take away the pain image

  • I'm hoping to support this year. Off to do Ibbos Cake Quest sportive in a min, which will confirm I am no way fit enough for ball buster at the moment!
  • Which ride you doing BH?

    Nice routes, not sure about the weather. I use the Jaffa Cake 45 mile route as a regular ride (well, when I say regular, I mean that I have done it a couple of times!)

     

  • Injured image

    Can't do Ballbuster image

  • I may be about to support.

  • I could well be there shouting....which of course means I might be with someone...ahem.

  • Gladys, I did the middle one, carrot cake. Was a good ride but the weather was shocking!



    Steady CJ, nice to meet you, hope you had a good ride?
  • Yeah, I enjoyed most of it, saw you fly up that hill with the 17% sign. I took 4 hours to do the Jaffa.

  • Wonder what difference running it on a sunday will make?  The traffic has been quite bad in recent events and not sure a sunday will be better or worse 

  • Mr F is doing the Ballbuster?  Top work Mrs F!

  • There's a little gang of him & his pals CD, so should be fun for shouting at image See you there!

  • I'll be there, too - my fifth consecutive BB!

    Looking forward to the new road surfaces image.

  • Be good to see you Joddly - albeit briefly at the start before you race off!  image

  • Road surface is good, but they did put the speed bumps back in.

  • I'm in.  Just been topping up my bike fitness with some long, hilly, lovely rides in Ibiza.  Not sure that'll prepare me for quick transitions in freezing rain but otherwise I'm bang up for it.

  • You can always catch up with Joddly at the awards, Slim!

    She is always there with a surprised look on her face when they announce her name . Every year! image
  • Really wanted to do this but will not get enough bike time between now and then to do it any kind of justice.. also won't be running up any hills between now and then either image It would just be suicide. Maybe next year though! I probably will come along to laugh at you all though - i mean to support you.. image

  • Boooo image No Ballbuster in the Funkin household now...someone broke his rib windsurfing and can barely sit up in bed let alone do a 16 mile hilly run. Might still come and shout...

  • Oh my goodness Mrs F. Give him a gentle hug from us.
  • Bad news image

    You could take his place MrsF? We could get you a Monty Python/Life of Bryan beard to race in.

    "Are there any women here? No no no no!"

    C'mon, he must have a dozen other good ribs, what's one dodgy one ? HTFU Pirate!

  • Hehe Cat - can you *imagine* it...actually I kind of can "Briiiaaaaaaaaan"...

    Meester Kanga, slight problem in not being able to walk well (let alone run), or sit forward to ride, or do anything really besides sit up straight. HC, gentle cuddle administered image

  • Oh dear dear dear Mr F .... how very careless !!!

    True so true  Gladys, you always know where to find a Joddly  image

  • Everyone ready then?  image

  • Hoping to be there to aargh, at some point! image
  • I've just eaten a loaf of bread and pumped up my tyres.  Bring it on.
