2013 STW Birmingham Urban MTB
It’s about time we got our act together and went for another ride. For those as yet unindoctrinated, the general idea is a group ride taking in the sights and sounds of Birmingham, picking a route through the city that inevitably includes steps, stairs, ramps and perhaps a multi-story car park before we find our way back to a pub for an evening pint.
I’m proposing we stay with the established tradition of a Thursday night. Specifically…
7.30pm, 1st of August at the Bullring Bull.
Everyone is welcome, those that have not been before even more so.

P.S. A little taste of what to expect:

ST, bear in mind this is STW so whilst most of us talk the talk we are in fact fat, under skilled office workers. Last time we went out it was the kind of riding I used to do as a kid, blasting around town, jumping off steps and trying not to falloff in front of your mates. Frankly, it was bloody brilliant.Posted 4 years ago
Winch, In fairness I’m not the one advertising an urban ride;o) there at least needs to be bombing through the Mailbox getting chased by security!
I am tempted although I’m supposed to be enjoying the delights of Broad Street on 1st but will see.
Lunge, I know that really… I’ve not done it since I had a part time job at On Your Bike (the old one) back in the late 90’s, I remember min ing around jumping off pairs of steps thinking it was ace, some dodgy trialsy riding then out on the towpath to the old BMX track at Perry Barr. Ace times.Posted 4 years ago
L ache, go on, you know you want too and yes it was a real shame when the bmx track fell I to disrepair. I used to live 5 minutes up the road and spent a fair bit of time watching the racing there way back. Had a great time last year watching the Euro champs there, it looks ace and defiantly too much for me.Posted 4 years agojamj1974Subscriber

‘ST’? Is that you Stuart? If so they were ace times! Bones, Little Ian, Steve Large etc…
