- Bristol Bikefest roll call
Gonna be soloing it on Saturday, in a can't be arsed beer hand-up stylee. Actually, no, scratch that, I'm aiming for 24 laps. 🙂
Just broken my leg, so I'm out.
Shee-it! Text me your ward number and I'll bring you a copy of "Grumpy Shropshireman Monthly" and some grapes.Posted 9 years agosam_commencalMember
The course is fun on any bike (I regularly ride it rigid) but if you want speed then a HT or lightweight full sus will be the best bet. I've decided to ride a 100mm HT this year as opposed to a 140mm full sus as there is always a load of traffic on the rocky/rooty singletrack so it's hard to pass anyway, whilst the HT flies around most of it.Posted 9 years ago
The classic bike fest template is shite conditions until a day before the race, then it dries out miraculously overnight.
Here's a pic from our Dig and Pig two years ago – it had all dried up (or been drained by the volunteers!) a week later when the race rolled round.

hmm, i was considering taking my small block 8s off after last nights ride round the course and leigh woods! i'm sure it will dry out well by the weekend though.
Tuesdays rain is good for the course, it was getting very loose and dusty last week.Posted 9 years ago
12 hour team for me.
I'm just hoping the bbf is the reason there are so many stony-faced runts battering around Ashton Court at the moment and they will be sated by it.
No it's like that quite a lot, mind you I'm too busy barging slow newbies with half ton camelbacks and knee length flappy shorts into hedges to notice.Posted 9 years ago

Yep, LVIS Pirates.
I'll be in LVIS kit wobbling slowly around on my Blue Pig… :-/
Heh, your bars will prevent people from overtaking..
Surely the 5 would be better?
Damn right! 😉
Yes it would, but it's in bits and I can't be arsed to rebuild it again at the mo (used most of the bits off it for the Pig).Posted 9 years ago

Avoiding it – hopefully the serious, head-down, barging antisocial, lycra-clad mardy riders will get whatever it is out of their systems and the area will be full of happy cyclists next weekend.
You sound way mardier than any of the peakless lycra blokes that were sessioning the course at the weekend. 😉Posted 9 years ago
