ok cool :D Looks like it's the Quantocks then...
next we need to sort a date and route i think... date-wise; are there any that people do/don't particularly want?

Route-wise; Bike Hoarder, can you suggest a route that would be suitable for all?, I'd be more that happy to come and pre-ride it :D :D :wink: also a start/finish, from memory we used to start our rides near Holford...

If everyone is cool with November, i'm free on 9th, 23rd and 30th. Depending on the distance people are travelling, are we looking for say a 10am start time?
Riding time, 3-4hours? Quantocks are known for being pretty gruelling, either up or down. Not much flat i'm afraid. (doesn't mean i'm any good at riding up hills though!!) What about technical stuff, are we all cool with some pretty tricky descents?
I'm from Taunton side, so i always ride from Lydeard Hill direction (Taunton to Minehead road). Mainly cause it's 15 mins from my door.... :D

any of those dates would be cool with me 8) I think 10am start is reasonable and 3-4hours would be fine for most? as far as i'm concerned, the more technical the better :twisted: bring it on :D :D :D

cce, what dates are good for you? Dirtjumper dmr says he can do any, just prefers 23rd! If November is proving difficult, we can push it into December?

Count me in 8)

I can only make Sundays but can be pretty flexible on dates.

I trust there is a retro theme :wink:
