------

So I would like a ride to start at Welton on the Sunday.
This coincides fantastically with the Cycle Jumble at South Hunsley school
http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=115708
, down the road from the usual ride start point a 12 min walk
http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=d&sourc ... 8&t=h&z=16
You can then have a chat to old Ned ;)

So there you go, I'll throw this out there

SatNav : HU15 1PE
Dale Road, Welton

Be there from 9:30am with the aim to ponder down to the jumble at 10am
Starting the ride hopefully no later than 11:00am (earlier if everyone is there we know about)

PM : Me or Chrisv40 for phone numbers in case of any problem on route.


It shouldn't be a difficult ride and we can cut it short if time is getting on.

There are a few heading back to the cars at around 1:00-ish iirc , which is when the 'last hill' part are done ;)

Fluffychicken pretty much always has his camera on rides, much to my embarrassment...

Start point is usually A and B is the Cycle Jumble.

No idea what the other link was doing :lol:

Well no as the other one was due for September but looks likely to slip till winter now.

This is a spare of the moment, coincide with an old bike jumble sort of ride :)

Route unknown as of yet etc...
I do have a 29miler from that start point though, but I know 4 people on here so far will be knackered after the first 7 to 9 miles of it :s :twisted:

EDIT
Since I've been asked, this is the 29/30 mile route. BUT I just throw it out there and Chris knows the Newbald section well and I know he had some plans around there, by well I mean he chatted about it.
No1 is not the start, so ignore it.
I already know some bit from Walkington to Skidby I would alter. if we come back that way.
Would like to see ideas of the newbald area though ? anyone know the tracks there ?

Work! If you cannot get out, we'll all ride down the road and pretend to come and buy thing :twisted:
Oh I edited above to give you the overview. Still think we'll be wanting to come back after 10 miles in though if we're up to our current cycling form :oops:

Author:  chrisv40 [ Fri Sep 03, 2010 8:25 pm ]
Post subject: 

I know there is a trail from where we watched the East Yorks Classic down into Newbald and that would be the perfect place for lunch in the pub, can call the landlord of the Tiger if you want and see if he will cater for muddy bikers :lol:

From the pub back up to the trails would mean riding back up the same way off road or using a nice little country lane which would bring us out somewhere near where we talked to those roadies.

Author:  chrisv40 [ Fri Sep 03, 2010 8:28 pm ]
Post subject: 

Ignore that Ben, just realised your route takes us out of Newbald the other way towards Bishop Burton, on virgin ground there as far as I'm concerned, looks like this is gonna be an all dayer :D

Author:  FluffyChicken [ Fri Sep 03, 2010 9:02 pm ]
Post subject: 

I cannot remeber but it is the high hunsley circuit and some other main circuits. and if two nice women doing stretches can run around there, we can certainly bike it :wink:

Popping in to N.Newbald sounds good though.
I think After Newblad, the way back is quite easy going.


the problem is if we get in to the old jumble sale at 10am, talk and fettle and get back to the cars to dump any treasures... will there be enough time for an all dayer ?

Author:  chrisv40 [ Fri Sep 03, 2010 9:07 pm ]
Post subject: 

Should be back from the jumble by 11 so should be ok.

Author:  FluffyChicken [ Fri Sep 03, 2010 9:12 pm ]
Post subject: 

Orange marks alteration possible. Nip in to Newbald route and do full loop, skidby alteration bit I think would be a nicer alternative gained from our last ride.

Or nip in to newbold, lunch, loop back along green and do the hills in reverse and gives pink route as a quick road bailout.

Original was mapped in memorymap then exported so I could put in to bing so yes it's in bing. I do not know how to share it though :s

Neither did I until I was chatting this morning :lol:
I've walked up the road and back to work, does that count as exercise ?

I may have the Kona running by next week, Andy just sent some good news.

Dave mentioned if he can get out he needs to be home early so possibly have to take the quick road back himself from S.Cave or Newbald.
Dave ? you going to see if KHS ginner or whoever else isn't a member can come along.

I just asked wto of my mates from BiTD that I've not seen for ages if they want to come along as well.

I'll get back to you on that. I'll see if the Misses can give me a lift there if she has nothing to do.

My old friend Stephan should be coming and I've not seen him for many many years.

Hope to see you all at the jumble, bring lots of cash! Wish I could come with you but I will hopefully be selling lots of my surplus 'collection'.

Thanks for posting the maps. Now I can use them when I take an MTB to my daughter's in Brough. I generally roadie it around the Wolds - which is very nice - but an off-road option will be good as well.

Haven't a clue yet! Lots of old 'modern' roadie bits, wheels possibly, drop bars and stems, forks, possibly tyres. A lot of it is really only suitable for spares but you never know - one man's meat is another man's poison - as they say.

Thanks for the offer to meet, I might take you up on that. Are you talking about road or-off road rides? Also, as a man of advanced years and being a gentleman of leisure I tend to get out in the mornings - but summer evenings could be OK (but there won't be any of those for a while :wink: )

Off road preferably but I have just built a Mtb with slicks, Sunday mornings are usually best for me :wink:

What time is the ride actually starting? I'm not interested in the Jumble, I have a pile of stuff already....

Looks a little flat? Or am I just wrong?

Author:  chrisv40 [ Wed Sep 29, 2010 1:05 pm ]
Post subject: 

Some parts are quite flat but the Welton-Newbald section certainly isnt :wink:

Ride should start at 11.00 ish.

Be good if you can come along.

Ben will confirm the start time I would imagine :wink:

Author:  FluffyChicken [ Wed Sep 29, 2010 3:46 pm ]
Post subject: 

I would say 11am at the latest if we need to leave that late but preferably earlier, cannot see being in the Jumble that long.

If you plan on coming give Me or Chris a shout for our mobile numbers in case of any problems... same to others.

Chris my +1 is confirmed and be good to meet up with him again.

My plus one might be
+0, +1 or now +2 ... weather depending.

Pack a waterproof, there is the big cloud that going to drench Lincolnshire coming up from the south and we'll be on the very edge of it. Fingers crossed it not quite far enough across on the day to get us wet. It should skirt around us, but you know weather forecasts and that was the BBC this morning.


Unfortunately looks like the Kona well not be coming out :( When I put the bushes in I covered the Air hole for the air to get in. One fork is pumping up fine but the other is not, air goes in, but not out so I cannot tell the pressure. I need to rip the seals etc out and reseat the bushings :(
ffs!

So usual bike here for me :roll:

Morning all, not raining at the moment.

But looking at the revised weather this morning, who knows where that cloud will go, but I do know sod's law tends to prevail.

Fixed the forks up last night so they work now. Shame the rest of the bike needs building up.

So off to find out in a bit if I need to fix anything on the usual bike or if I picked up any thorns.

See you in a few hours.

Well Dave turned up and looked up at the rain, pinched a Proflex and legged it back to the South Bank before we even started.

Chris and myself where the bright and early, in the biggest down poor of the day, well worth it though to get the Jumble and a short chat to old Ned.. would have gone back for more chat but he never actually seemed to be on his stall. :lol:
I bought a few things and eventually chris dragged me back out into the rain to meet with the rest for a ride.

As my youngest son (2) kept saying and reminding me as I was getting my bike ready 'wet' 'wet' 'wet' while looking out side...

So yes it rained a little (ok a lot, there where streams down the road and apparently down one of the tracks but we missed that.)
It was lovely and muddy and the grass was wet and so good fun.

My brakes worked fine, just the tyres sometimes refused to contribute to this stopping lark. Luckily there was a nice soft modern CUBE that help a bike stop when you hit it :twisted:

Not many pictures as the camera complained about the rain. Hills, well they where a tad hard to ride up when you pedal and the wheel just sits there spinning in the same place :lol:

We didn't get even half of the ride done but not to matter I fully enjoyed it.

:D

You're bl**dy heroes going out in that. I got soaked just loading the car after the jumble. I kept looking out of the window and saying to myself - 'they won't have gone in this' - but you did!

Sorry I wasn't at the table when you were there, I was off 'networking' around the hall. Geoff on the table next to me told me off a lot and said I'd lost lots of possible sales but I did OK.

I'd really like to have a decent off-road ride in the area so will keep it in mind for the future - when it's dry!

I can see where it's skipped logging our gps position, I assume that is just loosing sync/signal.
Seems to be in the heavier wooded area .. or muddy sections... or when it was raining... or where there was a steeper hills.
Dunno which excuse GPS could use.
Most is there though and thought it was short distance but well I pedalled twice as far on some of the sections, I do like the 'riding to standing still' ratio though :lol:

It's heavy woodland it doesn't like.

It monitors the ride warts an all. There is no hiding.
