When does that new job start? You really need to get in as much riding as possible before your life changes for good!!!
It already has - I've been at it for a week. It was a situation whereby I had the interview last Thursday and started this Monday. It's going well so far - I appointed myself the company Sales/Marketing contact for the Microsoft Authorised Education Reseller Scheme today. Tomorrow I'm going to have a bash at the exam to become MS Certified. I'm doing some other accounts stuff as well and a bit of credit control here and there. I'm learning lots which is the good thing and I've heard on the grapevine that the boss likes me. I just need to get him to pay me more than tuppence an hour and I'll be away -- meanwhile I'm busy trying my best to become indispensable and make the company money/savings. Oh and there are girls too - I've organised a social this coming Tuesday.
Having a job is the greatest thing ever. I've got something to focus on, am finally proving my worth and meeting people. I feel like I'm approaching the light at the end of the tunnel of rubbishness I've dealt with for the last year. Yay!
Regarding this Saturday: I had a (car tyre) puncture on the way to work this morning (thankfully I had the plastic sheet I lie my bike on when it's in the car to kneel on to avoid getting the suit dirty!) and need to get it fixed this weekend. My weekend plans will be running around that basically but I'm hoping it'll be possible to get the work done on either Saturday afternoon or Sunday and still come biking, if indeed Saturday morning is the chosen time.

If you don't mind me joining you guys, I've a few questions:
What sort of ride do you do - XC \ DH \ Stunt ?
Everyone else does XC - I provide the stunts... albeit unintentionally.
Only about fifteen miles of small ups and downs but it feels more like twenty five.
Where do you meet?
The Lookout carpark on the far left.
When do you plan to start / finish?
That varies, but usually around 0845 (meeting) in the carpark to leave at 0900 and then get back at 1230/1300 ish and have a quick cuppa and a chat before leaving. Someone will specify the start time before the event.
