He's coming to our NWA ride this Saturday (bike polo pending no doubt!), do we have a suitable punishment for this limp wristed pole stroker?


Make him ride with risers and barends I reckon.

I believe thats common practice for the polo brigade! Maybe make him ride without any anodised parts, can't see him getting too far.

If I knew he was into Bike Polo he would have never got a place!! Gheylords are banned!


We are looking for 5 Marshals, you'll need a bike, and be available from about 08:30 on Sat 17th April through until about 15:00. For your trouble you'll be issued with a security band, this will enable you to gain access into the parties(Fri/Sat nights), rides (Friday/Sunday) and you'll be fed on the Sat night.
If you're interested I need firm definitives not maybes!!! Email me on SSEC10 AT gmail.com if you're up for it. Thanks

If it helps on the bike choice the course has a fair amount of climbing but some sweet singletrack. There are some fireroad sections to give the 'r**ers' a chance to get past without ruining the more social riders day.
I've ridden the course on a 2:1 equivalent.

That doesn't matter as we are calling it an 'event' as the 'R' word is banned!

How you going to police the 'R' word policy. At least half the participants will probably absent mindedly say it at least once. Chuck that many folk out and you might have riots as bad as last time the Welsh invaded :lol:

Couple of photos from the Forest of Dean today, let's hope that the weather holds....

Oh, and saw a couple of wild boar with 6 piglets. The latter were very cute but, after a 5 minute Mexican standoff, the adult beasts made me turn back.

That looks fab. I've got some local beer and cheese on order and the bike is running well so all I need to do now is drive for 10 hours :?
