went and did 23 miles around the forest with my mate adam, at the moment he doesn't have a bike so i said he could use one of mine!

he had never ridden a bike with flat bars, canti brakes and rigid! :lol: but then he is only a young lad!! :lol:

off we went around the brockenhurst area of the new forest, pretty good ride , were dodging rain clouds all the way round and just got away with it, cool ride and quite quick aswel! :D


the qe2, was invited to a "grown up" party at hotspur house in hythe, opposite southampton in the solent by a friend, had a great view across the water and obviously it was dark so i apologise for the crappy photo!! but i thought it was important to mention it, the qe2 will not be seen in southampton or UK waters ever again.

here's the pics! :D

You out again this afternoon?
Looks like I am 'working from home' today and wondered if you wanted some company if you do get out in the forest again later on

I'm just the other side of the forest to you, in Highcliffe (no I'm not 110!)
Might just go for a local spin out around Holmsey/Burley in an hour or so.
Got a couple of repairs to do first though!

If you ever are planning a ride and want some company, drop me a line. I quite often get days where I sit at home waiting for work :D

Me too..I'm in Ringwood. Quick dodge out up to the old runway as Stoney Cross at lunchtime the last two days - weather was gorgeous.

Tore a tyre to pieces yesterday and discovered my pump was bust; today I broke a spoke...

Gotta say mate that I liked the look of your IOW ride a while back.
Be bang up for meeting up at the ferry then giving that a try.
Maybe a nice, crisp Saturday/Sunday morning?
Sure we could get a few people interested :)

Sounds good to me! I have a football re-union in the afternoon though, so it would need to be early-ish for me. Be a cracking way to work up a thirst for what will be a very 'thirsty' afternoon :lol:
