After waiting so long to go on this ride a spanner has been thrown into the works. :roll:

For reasons I'll not go into we've had a rough week at home and I may stay at home with my wife to cheer her up - some things are more important than riding bikes I'm afraid.

I'll see how we are on Friday and make a decision then.

Mark - when would you expect us to be back at the carpark, barring any incidents?

Cheers guys,

Rob

Rob, bring here with you.
If she doesn't ride, the place should be nice to visit.

It's often nice to get out.

i'll say 3pm give or take 15 mins. just back from it. generally dry with odd squidgey bit, bike fairly mud free though!

get this. i was drooling, even fantasising about a tray of chips as i've had no lunch but, armed with 500ml of water i thought all would be fine at the chippy. closed :evil: ah well, i know it will be open on sat though. weekdays it shuts at 1;30pm til 5. i was cycling open-mouthed to catch any protein. :lol:

aye rob, come over anyway, walk round and stuff. feed the ducks and there is plenty of gardens to enjoy. i recommend the tropical greenhouse at back of the rose gardens, its like walking through a perfume dept in a store 8)

You've missed a detail of the front page I think.
Where's breakfast ?

Good point FC, that's one vital detail missed there MarcTT!

Having a bit of a dilemma on which bike to use...

Clockwork = no forks (off being serviced)

Marin = Needs fully recabling, those Goodridge outers are mighty stiff and have snapped off several outer cable ferrules!

KHS = in a muddy heap at the back of the room

Modern plastic tat = clean & ready to ride but with several new parts fitted & not ridden since fitting them
