    what is my prize?

    One ticket to UK Games Expo (the organisers decided to save you the embarrassment of having a spare one), and a no expenses spared meal for 2 at your favourite drive through restaurant.

    No
    Sort of.

    I mate asked if I wanted to do a 75mile ride on Sunday. I had a think and with the exception of one ride of about 40miles last summer I haven’t ridden a distance greater than 5 miles in over a year.

    I’m also quite near Oxford, but I don’t kiss on the first date.

    I’m overweight
    I ride loads (but that’s what you asked in the post title)
    I worked in IT for 33 years (plus the bit I was doing at the shoppe when we met).

    The second question was a trick question.

    I think you’re cuddly, not overweight.

    1)right weight just needs shifted about a bit
    2)haven’t commuted in 2 years but that’s going to change (stop using 17 miles each way as an excuse
    3)no but spend too much of my working life staring at a screen

    Are you overweight? Yes,
    Do you actually ride your bike much? Yes, although suppose that depends what loads is. commutes atleast 6miles a day and try to get out for 30/40 milers at the weekend. I balance it out with a shedload of chocolate and fizzy juice to compensate for any weight loss! 😀
    Do you work in IT? Kinda, graphics not quite IT but not far..

    It seems there’s a new breed of not so overweight, bike riding IT consultants.

    Should have added that I am spectacular at falling off, currently have a very bent front wheel on my mtb that has been that way since the first weekend in Feb when I stacked it. And I’m also a girl at the really technical stuff too. Put me a bike with nice flowing riding though and I’ll happily go round all day long.

    I do commute about 60 miles a week but as this is an MTB forum I discounted time spent on a bike with skinnyish wheels and drop bars.

    Haven’t been on my bike for 2 weeks now as being in IT I’m actually sat in a non-glamourous location in a hotel room and damn to I miss it. Trying to work out if there will be space in the car for my bike as well as all of my mates stock I will be travelling to bespoked with this weekend, seems silly to be going to it without the a bike at least.
