Does anyone fancy?

Just an idea but after the swimming champs at the xmas bash last year how about a bike champisonship?.

Near me there is a purpose built circuit that is 2km and has a few lumps in it, that can be hired for a few hours and we could have a time time and road race or handicap race.

What do people think? Will enquire about cost of booking if I get any interest.

Or this could be an early play for the xmas bash to be in London this year...image

  • Sounds like a great idea.  No reason we shouldnt have the xmas bash in London I guess, its been touring the country for the last 4 years.

  • Interested

  • ESSEX........you can't us make us go to esseximage

  • S'ok Seren, I am sure you can still get white stilletto's image
  • And anyway, you should be grateful we even let you across the border, let alone as far as ESSEX image image
  • Does it have to wait till Xmas? Why not a summer outing?  

  • I guess it needs to fit around people's IM training and eventing, Soup.



    But then again, I may be talking out of my arse image
  • Guess it could be anytime but as schmunks says most are commited up to septemberly/wales and if people were to travel it might make it more fun to tie it in with a beer or two.

    Noticed they hire bikes as well for those that don't want to bring their pride and joy

  • Like your thinking FlatFooted .. count me in.

     

     

  • there will be a gap in training in july after outlaw......

    if its outdoors and at the end of the year iots going to wet and cold and people won't want a pile of wet kit and bikes in their cars when they are getting dresed up for a christmas do

    Seren makes a good point ... and if we wait til xmas the white stilettos would need to be replaced with white UGG boots instead.  

  • Why not make it a summer bbq, or end of season bash. If we wait till end of Sept, it should still be warm enough?? But whatever, great idea....... i'm in!

    I'm also a little concerned about Slag's knowledge of Essex 'ladies' fashion???? image

  • Vote for summer here.

  • Possibly interested, depending when it is.
  • What the Feck is worng with Essex ...  eh?  !!!

  • I'm keeping schtumimage
  • and THAT makes a feckin change   image

  • I'm in. Summer sounds good.
  • Post Henley / Wales  late September sounds good for me! And no,

    Engineer, you can't. Unless you can do it on a unicycle. No man who needs a triple in the Surrey Hills is allowed! image

  • Engineer needs a triple in Surrey? Blinkin' 'eck, even I don't need a triple.image

  • dustboy.don't agree re marathons..........you can get such variety in marathons.......London, beachy head, snowdon, the sandwell one where you run through the longest canal tunnel in pitch black for ages.........

     so many to choose from and all so differentimage

  • even I might come out and play...........

     

    It doesnt involve swimming after al

  • If you are still alive .....  dont go making plans at your age  image

  • he can have stabilisers on his bike image

     

  • feck..... did I miss the bit about havuing to actually ride the thing

    How about making it a 'handicap' type event where everyone hires and races on a 'Boris bike'?!!

    I'll hold the stop watch!

    Oh and I *need* a triple in Surrey!  It's a power to weight ratio thing!  In that I'm too heavy for my legs!!  image

  • Looks like this is a goer then, will give them a call for dates around late sept then......dare i offer the after party at mine?

  • depending on dates etc, we may be up for this

     

  • If it ends up a hill, the triple will soon be leaving you for dust, Aird. Not so certain if it goes to a bunch sprint...
