Will be moving in 13/14 Feb, but I won't be there full time until about 20 Mar. Then looking forward to a long spring/summer off work, getting fit and learning to ride again.

We looked in Ross and a house in Lea which went for crazy money.

Yep - challenging conditions in the Cotswolds Saturday - here's daj looking cheerful despite axel deep mud. Bit out of focus unfortunately - still you can get the idea.

All in the interests of "consumer testing" his local loop from Stow on the Wold. Actually it was good fun in a masochistic kind of way!

Roll on Spring!!

Evening ,

How are we all ?

Is there the slightest interest in getting together for a local loop? I have taken to the roads due to the rubbish conditions in the Cotswolds but happy to be shown around someone elses?

Any news Chris on Mayhem team?

Does anyone else road ride?

Cheers

daj

Roads are a better bet at the moment I feel. Cycled back from Tewksbury to Ross this afternoon on Tiny Ti with cyclocross tyres - shade under 30 miles. Slushy roads, lots of snow around Ledbury. Malverns made a magnificent back drop for the first half of this ride!

Further to the road riding theme daj and I and possibly one or two others from my motley collection of local cycling friends are doing a road loop around Ross on Wye this Saturday 27th Feb.

Distance 20+ miles quiet lanes and a few hills to keep warm climbing but nothing hugely challenging.

Starting from my house in Ross at 1.00 p.m. back 3.00 ish for tea and flapjacks.

Short notice but if anyone fancies coming drop me a PM and I'll let you know address and phone contact.

Cheers

Carol

And here's the evidence

daj in a full set of "roadie lycra" and a distinctly dodgy phone box full of mannequins!

As the man says a good ride - all those hours on the turbo have obviously paid dividends as daj sprinted up all of the hills in fine style!
