Just a quick note to say ALL are welcome. If you've not got anything retro running who cares? Come along for the ride and chat.

See you all Saturday

John

Cheers for now.

As a Northerner heading out of my riding comfort zone - how does one go about tyre selection for the N Downs ride... age specific, width, amount of tread left (after 10 years), or of course, colour?????

:wink:

Competitions, Forfeits and General Silliness requires an element of planning.... can I suggest the following:

1. Lateness Award - if Cannock is anything to go by, I know where I would place my bets, however it's normally contested between the nearest bods to the venue...

2. First Mechanical Award - almost certainly the most expensive or blingiest bike will pop first...

3. The Lost at Sea Award - to the inevitable poor soul that takes the wrong route only to be lifted by the fuzz at dusk on the M25...

4. Most Inappropriately Dressed Trophy - let battle commence fashionistas!

5. The Laggards Cup - traditionally fought over by myself and Max, we suspect by the number of 'oh I'll have to start training' quips that we will have stiff competition here!

6. Girls Allowed Medallion - previously a shoe-in category for Jez, I suspect he could actually be challenged by a real live girl....

7. The Kona Award - don't even go there...!

Add more as you see fit....


Neil

'First mechanical' is likely to be me at this rate... :( my shock (which popped on the reccie ride) has decided to fuse itself into the rear stays... :( its been soaking in wd40 for the past few days and im about to take big grippy tools to it... not a fun experience! :(

Don't worry if they're appropriate - just make sure the colour of your tyres compliments either your attire/bike!
