just clicked on the star to do my first nobmob ride in ages. seconds after i get a call to inform me that i have guests staying over on sat night!
i think it's a bit rude if i'm not there when they wake in the morning. bloody selfish 'non' cyclists! Sad

Rob's picture

Well, Gazza, remove yourself if you're not coming! Sticking out tongue

Eyeball's picture

Looking at the popularity of this ride I wonder if it's worth posting a simmilar, but slightly slower training ride from the same meeting time and place? Any suggestions or interest?

Bernd's picture

I think I open this one up and everyone is welcome and we group up in "A's and B's"!!!!
Bernd

Andy Bloot's picture

You won't have a problem mate
All different speeds will be catered for
I haven't ridden in 2 weeks so I am keen to stay out as long as possible
So maybe we could check out some other things
Hope to see you Sunday

Paul's picture

Bernd, opening it up sounds like the sensible thing to do because the demand is there.

Splitting into a few groups would also be a good idea because large groups are always very slow and with a lot of people in training slow rides can cause frustration.

Bernd's picture

sure, you all are there well before 7-30am, as I will ride of at 7-30am on the dottttttt !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

fave comment on ride. sorry for holding everyone up on the downhill - i was scared. no balls at all. How can i represent Big Test Icicles??? Great fun in the mud. Rangie - don't forget to let me know about your friend who prints jerseys. we need to get our BIG TEST ICICLES jerseys printed up fast. we'll show the sketches once they're done as Stu said he'd want one.
