No idea of route, time, plan, or any of that jazz yet. But you know me, I'll sort something for y'all.
The last one was really rather pleasant for all concerned. We intend this one to be the same!
How far was the last pootle, Pook? Contemplating coming along and just running it, as have not got a MTB still
erm...16 miles? Run? You could walk on a pootle and still keep up
You could walk on a pootle and still keep up
Well....I didn't want to be rude.
You? Rude ever? Shirley not?
Giz a kiss!
Fab, the last one was a hoot, would love to join in this one too!
If I can make it that weekend Jamie, you can jog alongside me, but only if you wait on the steep bits.
(Built a new bike so should be a bit faster this time, got proper front boingy things too, still no gears though!)
Jamie what szie are you? I can lend you a bike [ mediums only]- as i like you i will even offer one with gears and suspension- front and/or rear your choice
Will be there, will bring cake
I enjoyed the last one, hopefully i can get a day pass. I've been working on my fitness, i can now peddle 50% further before pushing which should cover the first 100m or so
I should be ok for my 2nd pootle I will try and keep it clear, and im a little better at goning up hills but still not mega fast
Excellent, I shall come to this, it gives me the perfect excuse to not do that race that I've totally failed to do any training for whatsoever, woohoo!
Pook you edited - mail in profile
Vix - as always you're welcome, and you know the drill now so no need to be nervous!
unless im at work, im there
where have you not pootled over the last couple of years? Ive not kept track
Getting to the time of year we are now we need to stick to the rocky stuff. I'm tempted to run round jacobs....
I'm thinking of coming along to this
Sigh not this time either. Maybe next time. I will have been cycling in the Loire for work during the week though so it's not all bad.
I will definetly be there this time Pook! Wife has been informed, no excuses I promise
Jacobs ladder is scarey and involves lots of pushing/carrying
Adey - it starts three hours before you think
DanDan- depends on which way you do it. And as others on this thread will testify, pootles are all about the people you're with, rather than the ride itself (which is normally fun anyway)
Ok cool think il come along!
We have a few house rules
1) if you're fast, hold the gates and count the folks through
2) if you're slow - have something to talk about with the other 20 people with you
3) bring cake.
Pootles aren't a typical 'group ride'. I started them 'cos I hated being the person at the back. I wanted a group ride for the people at the back. There aren't any people at the back in a pootle.
woop! should be ok for this - will put the wheels in motion to sort childcare.
Poo, Rosie and I are riding in the lakes that day.
Have fun folks.
Will see if I can book this off work tomorrow, not been on one for ages!
Bloody hell! Sambob resurfaces! You must be, what? 16 now?
hahaha! Old enough to buy your own jelly babies! Can you make it?
