I'm in weather permitting of course.
OF Chipps and the Quantocks STW forum ride .
ill be there
*adjusts route plan accordingly*
yes I was at crowcombe carpark monday morn . Next time shout hi.
Stert is a good climb trail mid week when the nutters aint charging down it ! Frogs ok as a climb on the left bank going up. Willyboys is a short walk back up to .
i'll endeavour to make it!
Right hands down cuz i've worked out a quick loop.
Route works out at about 45km(28miles), it goes up and down alot, with about 1500m of ascent and descent.
Descents are.......slaughter house, weacombe, half hitched(knotties trail), stert/somerton, smiths, willoughbys, concrete block, frog and the whole run of holford combe flat out....
Ascents are....sheperds(ladies edge), staple plantation, bicknoller, dog pound, greenway path, part of dowsborough and stert.
The average speed on STW rides are about 3.5 mph, so you'll be riding for about 8 hrs without rest......
Haa haa haa haa, i'm gonna kill us all!!!!
So which descents do you not want to include...
I think I might have left one of my ribs on a root half way down Smith's: (look right just after the lingering smell of cooked brake pads...) if anyone finds it my email is in my profile.
Also I might be up for it if you have a 'slow' group like last time...
did some one mention a slow group ? sounds like a job for me(I was hoping that would be asked).
I went down Smiths today and saw no ribs, garmins or computers, bugger all in fact, not even any fallen branches to pen you in to a eye rattling path down...I's almost go as far as saying it's faster, which isn't such a good thing if you go straight on at the kink right and end up OTB in a wet bog..LOL.
Numbers may dictate if segregation is needed.
If anyone wants a group ride before crimbo, say now!
Last september was awesome and dusty, despite this one starting off err moist, i've a good feeling we're in for another dry spell to and with the bracken dying back, it opens up a few extra choices...woot!
I think its down to oldfart to shout out a date that suits Chipps aswell.
Another STW Q's ride - yes please
Indeed, this post is for OF's/chipps ride, he must be at work.
Was just stating if anyone wants a group ride before then it can be done, there's a few months to go till december..
If there's enough interest then a new thread can be started, i'm thinking alot of bikes will be going away for the winter!
well apart from the first weekend of october i'm ok .perhaps we need to see when chipps is available .last i heard he's scmoozing at eurobike.
Go ahead with the original plans Rolly.
The hills aren't going anywhere.
