A lap of the red route this evening: 9.5miles 53mins so you should be good for the low 40s


Thats very fast. I went out this morning and I wasn't even close to an hour :cry:

Aaghhh.... you haven't discovered bags of M&S fruit pastilles. I seem to manage half a bag between Nottingham and the Pines. Massive sugar high that lasts for about an hour.....it's downhill from there :?

Carol took the Fire Mountain out this evening for the first time.. short route to the pub. Brilliant riding behind watching the xt mech working away.

Good to have you back by the way.

Perry's toe is of major concern. Read back through this thread and you'll come across the Scots , ss at Dalby, and a clear case of the gaunlet having been thrown down. :D

im not taking that , ill be bringing the cream one . i felt a bit guilty when i passed a guy out on a rigid raleigh with cantis , i had to hammer past so he didnt see my cheater forks :oops: . i dont want to get it scratched riding over all the rough ground and by that i mean the failed alloy frames and bewildered riders wondering why their tensioners dont work . like a bra they should push up and give lift not hang down swinging in the breeze

and its dialled , which means filthy and neglected :lol:
