Morning all. Would you mind if i tagged along for the ride and maybe followed by a few friends no more than 4 at the moment??

Hope this is OK


Works for me. Could be upto 14 of us if no-one bails last minute, which is probably about just right for whats planned.

If I've got the energy and I don't have a late night on Saturday, I could be up for this, although I'm slightly concerned that I'll be lagging at the back and holding people up. I rode some of those boardwalks with Kerr a while back but bottled a few more, so I daresay I'd be walking most of them. If I'd be more of a pain than anything, being not that great a rider and all that, then frankly I'd prefer to explore on my own sometime and make a judgement on my abilities before embarking on a forum ride led by people whose abilities and patience levels I know nothing of. So be honest... I won't be offended.

I'm not sure many have riden across these first time around - they are a little on the daunting side. Most of the tricky stuff at TH, bombs, drops etc have chicken runs beside them anyway so you dont have to do them - there certainly be no pressure to.

The large group size is going to dictate the speed we all go, so its not going to be the fastest of rides, and the weather is going to put a stop to any silly fast speeds anyway.

If you decide not to, I'd be more than happy to show you around one evening as I am up there an awful lot (probably too much).

May see you Sunday.

Okay, well I'll see how I feel. If I do come, I can always bail if needs be. Cheers.

This may work out better for me as I can't make this Sunday and I may have swung the odd evening (once in a while). Specially as I just watched the video that Maj posted of the area - looks absolutely great. Although woodwork does scare the bejeesus out of me. Mind you...nothing ventured, nothing gained! Have a good one guys.

Yes, there certainly is and you would be most welcome. The directions to the canal centre are in the ride details. Just a word of warning - its going to be really hot so bring plenty of water. rolleyes.gif

Bring some money, and we'll see if we can get a half way house stop in (local Spar).

Sorry I missed it. Stayed in bed for a lie-in in the end. I'll try exploring it on my own at some point.

So that I can cycle there, how do you get there from the Lookout?
