Booked – cheersPosted 3 years ago
I’d be happy to throw in some money towards one of these if people were interested?
sides could be useful if it’s a bit wet…

I’m up for that, what Fatbike have you got?
I’ve just had a three week lay off with broken ribs and won’t be fully back on it for another two weeks I reckon (clipped my bars and went OTB and hit a tree in Stanmer Woods on the Junkyard trail).
I should be fine by BigDog though and itching to go on my new Surly Krampus. I also trained for and did the full off road Coast to Coast six weeks ago so I’ve got some fitness built up this year. It’s just for fun anyway, I’m looking forward to skinning a few trail bikes on the fattie 😀
I see we’re both signed up for Solo Vets 40+ at the moment. I wonder if they’ll swap us into Fatbike pairs?

Cool – I think it’ll be fun 🙂
I’m just finishing building a Puffin.

I rode to Sainsburys the other week when I could have driven 😉
Here’s last years effort from me: http://app.strava.com/activities/73661379/laps so you know what to expect in terms of tailing off of lap times as the day goes on. I’ve been doing the odd longer ride recently so hopefully riding in a pair will work better in terms of consistency…
I’ll have a chat with Simon – I’m sure he’ll be happy to move us – there’s always a waiting list for solo. Did you register with your email from your stw profile – I’ll copy you in using that address, anyway.

Cheers Luke, that’s a good plan, and riding as a pair sounds like it could suit both of us. I’m looking forward to seeing the Puffin in the flesh once it’s built, Singular make some beautiful frames I think.
I’ll forward you my BigDog entry details when I hear from you via email.

n.b. Paceman – you seem to have side stepped the tough guy challenge somehow?
I seem to remember lapping you about 4hrs in last year… that’s my challenge to beat 😉
…although I suspect that riding in the fat bike category for 6hrs will add enough “tough guy” for me.
TimP… 😆 😆 😆
That old chap was seriously angry about mountain bikers in Stanmer, what was it a 5minute rant??Posted 3 years ago
If my legs after 3 hours riding on Sunday are anything to go by you’re already the winner…
I’m a maybe for 9am Sunday at the tea rooms.
Also will probably be riding from the upper lodges at about 18:45 tomorrow if you’re not doing the BMTB awayday to Tilgate?
I do like the tag, whoever did that. Should be ‘ripped lycra’ though 😉Posted 3 years ago
Meeting some others at the upper lodges at 6:45 so if we do tea and cake we could be there for 7. Darkcyan can you email me a mobile number (address in profile) in case there’s a problem and I’ll send you mine. I’ll check they’re happy for a slightly larger group too.
Nathan -fingers crossed for you!Posted 3 years ago
DrP – not sure of your plans but I’m riding over from mine leaving at 18:00 if you want a bit of gentle XC/opportunity to watching me wheeze my way up a hill before the Stanmer singletrack? If you’re driving don’t park near the upper lodges – they close the car park – try and park in the uni sports hall car park and ride across.
Glad to hear you’re cleared to ride Nathan!
Should be 7 in total, I think.
The Velo Cafe ride is over at Stanmer this evening so we might see them too.Posted 3 years ago
