ok, spurred on by a great ride out today, team steel may yet rise from the ashes.
BBD falls one week after our wedding (half way through UK based honeymoon), but the Mrs actually seems receptive to me shooting down for the day.

cups of tea and foot rubs a plenty and ill see if I can get an official pass!..

as it so happens, the mrs is working on saturday...

I know it's mayhem this weekend and a few won't be about , but if you are, i could very very very easily be persuaded.

damn it, I just found out that its Mrs Steels hen party on sat.. she's out early afternoon so any ride for me would have to finish very early.
Is sunday an option at all?

Author:  BobCatMax [ Tue Jun 19, 2012 8:00 am ]
Post subject: 

hmmm, not as much as an option as saturday to be honest..as the mrs has to work on saturday, I do like to spend sunday with her.

I could do early on saturday..in fact, that might suit me better. how early can you go? I can just about get there for 09:15hrs

anyone else interested?

Mrs Steel needs to be in central london for 2:30pm, so i'd need to be home for approx midday, which with an hours journey back from Brighton probably makes it not very worthwhile methinks?

unless, heaven forbid, we go even earlier?

Author:  BobCatMax [ Tue Jun 19, 2012 8:38 pm ]
Post subject: 

that is about as early as i can get over there i think dude..i could try for the train before and get there for 8.15, i would have to negotiate the mornings tea delivery system for SWMBO however. it may be possible.

I may be able to make early saturday if i dont have to work
will post up later in the week :)

Right, I'm looking a bit wobbly about this at the moment. Mrs BobCatMax is not very well at all (little trip to the docs, and signed off work this morning)

I'm not feeling brilliant after a wobble myself on the bike on wednesday afternoon.

hows everyone else getting on??

I'm also probably going to split this off into it's own "training thread" in the near future if everyone is ok with that?

Author:  KeepItSteel [ Fri Jun 22, 2012 12:01 pm ]
Post subject: 

Yep, please split it off - lets keep this one dedicated to BBD - and a training thread in order for TeamSteel to train, Rocky IV montage style into uber machines

Author:  godders [ Fri Jun 22, 2012 6:34 pm ]

Yep works for me as well :)

Well while you lot were away playing in the mud :wink:
i managed to get in a couple of rides.... saturday 25.6 miles with
2500ft of climbing av speed 9.5 mph :oops: horrid head wind on the return leg :(

Post subject: 

I can probably squeeze in a ride in on sunday, or any day next weekend?

weekend of 13t/14th is my stag.. so not free then.

Author:  BobCatMax [ Wed Jun 27, 2012 8:52 am ]
Post subject: 

you're putting us to shame Mick!

Right, i'm hoping to get a pass out for half a day this weekend. At the moment Sunday is looking the better of the 2 days. I'd prefer the morning if possible..

Free the 7th/8th too

busy the same weekend as KiS (13th/14th)

the weekend after that is my birthday, so i very much doubt i'll be capable of much at all except grinning, slurring and then hurting, in that order.

Harumph,

just noticed that there's a race for life in stanmer park this weekend. it could make things a bit difficult.

it doesn't start til 14:00 on saturday, so maybe our best bet would be early doors saturday morning?

Author:  KeepItSteel [ Wed Jun 27, 2012 1:51 pm ]

can only manage sunday im afraid.

morning would be best

I'm going to start riding the course weekday evenings as weekends are hard for me. Have fun fellas.

Post subject: 

*shakes fist* no fair! plus i know you have been already....

what time do you finish on a Friday Bryan?

Jamie - Sunday is fine with me too..the race for life starts at 11, so i'm guessing that getting in by car will be a bit of a pain in the lead up to that..and parking.

on the plus side, migh tbe a bit of totty to look at, not that we're the type of gentlemen to indulge in that sort of thing..

I had the afternoon off, and headed up to stamner. "Found" some REALLY nice singletrack up where Godders took us last time. Also discovered a bit of a play area with log stacks, jumps, berms etc.

I had a really nice afternoon :D

right gentlemen *coughs* can we start getting an idea for times?

I can happily be there for 9 - 9.30 if anyone wants to come out to play that early?

Not only is my bike proper F'd, but I'm going out on Friday. Would love to join you, so I'll be there in spirit. Have a great ride...

Max, are you still coming up to Stamner this arvo?

I'm up here now :)

Author:  KeepItSteel [ Fri Jun 29, 2012 1:32 pm ]
Post subject: 

the ride is taking place on Sunday 1st, right?

I'm up for a 9:30am sharp start.

Could be swayed for 9am too, in order to beat the female masses accending on the park, although that would then involve leaving at silly o'clock to get there on time..

Does anyone have a postcode for best place to meet?

Marcus, on way home, sorry. I was thinking of next weekend. Looks a beautiful day for it..enjoy!

back again..

yep, the ride is Sunday 1st July.

Cool, 9.30 is do-able i think. Will be coming from Preston Park just after 9, so definitely at the car-park/start line for 9.30

Shame you won't be here Dan, but i can let you off just this once...

Post subject: 

no worries bud :)

just don't want to keep you all waiting whilst I fanny around trying to find you.

i'll be coming down past Gatwick/Crawley via M23/A23


Will it be obvious where to find you all when I arrive at park entrance?

Author:  BobCatMax [ Fri Jun 29, 2012 7:11 pm ]
Post subject: 

yes, hopefully. We usually gather in one of the car parks on the left after the gate. It's about 100/200 yds up. There is another car park directly on the left as you come in. Depending on volume of people, we may end up in there. I should be there a little bit before 9.30, so I'll try and let you know where we are...I'll pm you my number
