- Anyone fancy a Tweed Valley STW meet type thing?
Thanks Goan,Posted 10 years ago
Sounds fine, not worried about the distance, more the work rate. Finding my XC racer-buddies pace round GT black about the limit for 1 bottle of go-go juice!
Had a fairly bruising stack at Inners last week, so will keep tabs on when the Gypsy one is. Cheers.jockhaggisMember
Well in that case I might put my head above the parapet and register interest.
Quite fancy the Gypsy Glen as it's been a while since I've done that decent.
Either day should be fine for me at the mo.
Start at GT makes sense (for post ride cake), head out alongside golf course to Cardronna?Posted 10 years ago
Right then seeing as none of you are saying anything rides will be as follows:
Saturday will be a ride starting at Inners and heading round some of the lesser known trails and parts of the Merida route amongst others.
Sunday will be a ride round Gypsy Glen, from the Cardrona side, finishing up with a ride on some bits of GT and its offpiste trails.
Both rides will start at 10am. Inners at Inners, and Gypsy Glen from GT. Both rides will be a fair bit longer than GT Black at around the 30-40mile mark (maybe longer) but we will wait for anyone that is struggling.
So who is coming on what day?Posted 10 years agoTreksterSubscriber
not sure if I'll handle the pace…
jojo..the ride leader/s should adjust the pace to suit the slowest rider. the whippets should inform the ride leader/s if they intend leaving the group to do their own thing. Anyone who is not prepared to go at the slowest riders pace should just not bother going imo.
Some basics like a front man, tail gunner and a head count are essential tho.
I am away in the Peaks btw…have fun allPosted 10 years ago
How tech are the descents, was more what I was wondering, Mr G. Tech enough to be more enjoyable on full suss, or more enjoyable on the HT as it will maximise any potential gnarlitude. ( 😉 )
Not that bothered, but it's nice to have an idea of what would be the best tool for the job.Posted 10 years ago
The descents are not really techy, in my book. The one I'd say was most difficult would be Deliverance at GT, and that is hardly tech – we'll be ducking out the bottom of that maybe on sunday maybe. I'll be riding a HT, but thats all i've got built up just now.
Have you done the Selkirk Merida? If, so you'll know a few of the trails.
I'll assume the tailgunner role as always.Posted 10 years agorobgarriochSubscriber
I'm (tentatively) commiting to Sunday, despite being out for dinner Saturday – keen to do Gypsy Glen. Undecided over HT/FS too, not that I have the sick skillz for either. Going from Bonaly in Edinburgh, with roof rack space for 1 bike if anyone's interested in a lift. There for 9.45 'mind!Posted 10 years agoPaulGillespieMember
i'm registering a late interest in this, if i can! Fancy both days but i'll only be able to manage one (as long as i get time to fit my new granny ring, you can guess where I sit in the pack!). I'll have to leave making a decision until Friday night probably so i'll keep an eye on this thread.Posted 10 years ago
