Bristol Bikefest Roll Call
I will be there, not sure about riding yet as I am recovering from what appears to have been a flu episode in the last week. If I feel like just trudging round and not worrying about things I’ll be soloing on a very elderly yellow SS Chameleon very slowly, with a fair bit of walking up all the climbs.Posted 8 years ago
Alternatively, I may now be drinking all Saturday to the undoubted annoyance of my other0.5 who is racing in a women’s team.
I’m racing in the mixed pairs category with the GF. We’re both riding credit crunch-tastic rigid singlespeeds – apart from the bragging rights, we just wanted to try something a bit different. Expect us to retire around lap 3 with severe hand bruising/exploded knees.
We’ll also be rattling the tin for the Bristol Trails Group whose volunteers have done a cracking job (if I say so myself) of getting the course into shape for the race. Any donations to the cake and spade fund will be gratefully received. 🙂Posted 8 years agoanotherdeadheroMember
Another Vegas bod here. I really don’t want to have to bother with the ‘rakers 🙁
slowjo, while every description of mud is availible on the BBF course, its not the mud which is the problem – its the polished smooth n slippery roots and stones.Posted 8 years agoPeterPoddyMember
As far as I can see from all the available data I’ve studied, it’s a timing thing. There will be rain about, and some of it could be heavy. But it’s if it hits us or not, and when……And it’s possible it might not materialize (very much) at all………
So tell me, are you feeling lucky, punk?Posted 8 years ago
Something that has occurred to me is that in previous years we have been blessed with dry trails so there has been no impact on Ashton Court, now having seen the trail carnage at the Clic24 in 2007 when we had the rain all day, what might happen if the same happens to the Ashton Court trails? I can imagine the Ashton Court management up in arms if the trails are trashed, not to mention the fields that are used as well.Posted 8 years ago
