Looking at whos coming, I think i will be the weakest link but i am always up for a challenge. It would be good to get some decent mileage in and some air in to lungs. smile.gif I thought we did about 50 miles last time but i am not sure now... anyway it certainly felt like it. See you tomorrow.

cheers

Maj

Hi All

Great Ride.. my legs are feeling it now! Thanks Sandy Hill for leading... great food stops on route too!. The Yeti has been cleaned and returned to its rightful owner, have to say there was a slight tear in my eye as i reluctantly let go of the handle bars and gave 'her' back!

Hopefuly catch up soon, nice meeting new faces

That Yeti is a sweet ride. No question but 4K... Really?

@ Shmikuk, would love one, just not with that spec! will have to do some number crunching and see if I can stretch to it with a lower groupset / wheels etc.

@ Stan Leigh.. Just checked Chain reaction and raceface have a steel inner , may be worth checking its compatible before ordering, Im not sure what the Shimano ones are made of, I had to have the middle ring replace on my bike and I sure that was steel rather than aluminium, but Im running a Stylo chain set, not Shimano

http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=9402

@ French_Aristo, not sure on the exact price that bike would of cost,but judging by the gear on it it must be somewhere in that region, I can only but dream!

So whens the next ride?!

Here are today stats from my garmin.
XC Ride from Caesar Camp
We can all notice the sheer amount of tarmac riding. My bike never seem that much in her all life... disgusted.gif
Thanks Mr TomTom for leading
So Sunday 6th of Feb, if there is any takers, we will try to do a 36km loop in Swinley that included 0% tarmac.
I would suggest a 09:00 start and would hope to complete the loop in about 04H15 to 04H30 riding time so 05 hours all in.
Clearly the pace will be slower but although more elevation gain and lost, it should actually be a physically easier ride but a bit more technical
Any takers.
Also this coming Friday, starting 19:30, about 2 hours nite ride, 98.3% single or double track, 0.7% walking it and 1% fire roads
Both ride on the calendar

Should be up for Friday. It's rare that I have to but im currently negotiating passesfor Friday AND Saturday. I think Maj was keen too.
I enjoyed the ride today, iit felt like we were a long way from the start/ finish at times.

@biggsy; the way things have moved on with the "lower" groupsets, wheelsets etc I'm sure you could build a real nice bike for a lot less money. What are you going to try next?

Thanks for an great ride yesterday and thanks for leading simon. my legs are feeling it today. I think the mud really does make a lot of difference. Next time perhaps we can increase a bit to say 45 miles????

Maj, we can always do the Downslink from St Martha's Mount, just outside Guildford, to Shoreham and then along the seafront to Brighton. Its not a challenging ride by any means but the distance is more what you are after. I could do the 20th or 27th of Feb as it stands.

Oh and I can't make the 6th for Swinley as its out stock take weekend sad.gif

That downs link route is a nice summer social ride. It is a little dull though, I used it for getting some miles in last year. I've got a good cross country route that was part of the bhf London to Brighton offroad ride, that runs from brooklands to the downs link at cranleigh but haven't quite sussed the second half of the loop back.

Ha, still can't believe they chopped the track up like that!! All the money wasted on other "historic" spots around the uk, and they do THAT. Having driven and walked on the part out the back of the museum(and mercworld) it's unbelievable that the old boys hacked around there at 150mph. It's Sooooooo steep, slippery and scarily bumpy.
