Inners/Glentress Thursday 10th
With it being holiday traffic you’ll be 40-50 minutes from H.Gait. I shouldn’t be much behind you as long as I get away on time.
Will be in a silver Transit, if I’m not there by 6.30 don’t wait and I’ll try to catch you at the top car park.
I prefer mixing and matching routes but absolutely easy. If you’ve never been before I’d say Spooky Woods and Berm Baby Berm (a few times) would be on the must do list. There will be people going who know hidden options, not sure how these will hold up to the rain, but one I want someone to show me the start of is the Enduro descent that ends up back in Peebles! Good thing about GT is route plans can be made/changed on the way round very easily depending what people fancy and how they’re feeling.Posted 5 years ago
Afternoon Steve… I think I know the Enduro descent you are on about… goes out behind the green to the bottom of the Hydro… maybe leave a van there or something for the drivers… If its the one I’m thinkink of its a clarty one,
*think* being, I was there once with Naomi…Posted 5 years ago
That’s the one Rick. Might not be the right night for it but hoping someone could point me in the right direction! Does sound like you’d have to ride it to find it though rather than general directions.
Not a problem if it’s not tomorrow, as long as I’m out on my bike I’ll be happy. Better get the stuff in the wash from last night sharpish though, 5 10s might not be dry by then!!
Left there around 8.30 last night, no need for lights at that point, was fairly light on the way up the road (apart from the grey clouds) so gambling that I won’t need any tomorrow!!Posted 5 years ago
Hokay, weather forecast’s slightly less good than it was but still decent.
Cfinnimore, I’m on firstname.lastname@example.org or 07796896173- though that’s 02 so it’s borked just now. I’ll be in a dark grey mondeo estate with an attractive garnish of scrapes and dents.
And the Fort descent is ace but it’s also very slippy when it’s been wet, easy to find but not sure how up for it everyone will be.Posted 5 years ago
Smashin’ Northwind, details saved.
chris.finnimore at gmail dot com, should it be needed.
I’ll be on the commuter train Waverley> Edinburgh park for 5.30 as dictated by spokey emergency.
Outside Halfords? You’ll recognise me as the person with the bike least-appropriate for intended shredding, but it’s fastasfook so that’s a winner.
Slippy when wet?Posted 5 years ago
High chance of carnage?
Thursday is indeed the 12th Nick. I’m displaying a phenomenal amount of stupid on many levels today.
Mute, ‘course you can come. I’ve never been to GT either as it happens.
Think the plan is-as of midnight Wed- meet at Halfords at Hermiston Gait for 5.30 or if that’s crap for you, meet at GT.
A better informed person than I-regulars- should be able to fill you in on the how’s/when’s should that be the case.
Looking forward to tomorrow’s smooth run of events!Posted 5 years ago
The Peel car park was closed on Tuesday night for resurfacing, how about we say the bottom car park (first one as you come off the road)?
Think the Peel was due to reopen today but maybe better to arrange a meeting point that’s guaranteed to be open?
Bring it on, can’t wait to get out the office already! And apologies in advance for making you wait at the top of every climb!!Posted 5 years ago
Neeeeigh.. the scream of pain when I went to do cool-down-stretches went like this:
“CRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMP, OH YOU FKR, CRAAAAMP!
All stretched out and sodium-tablet resolved.
I look forward to more inappropriately-biked, ridiculous climbs. Between Puke Hill, the Midlothian Loop and tonights bonanza, i’ve lost a cumulative stone in weight just dickin’ about with you lot.
Shame Crombies pies and Granny’s cake ruin it.Posted 5 years ago
Yeah great work on getting that bike round tonight! Shame it was a single berm baby berm ride as that was where your bike excelled!
Good work for our comedy crashes too, 1 into a post and one on a slow climb corner but I’m not mentioning them!! Oops…
Got home and the guy wanted a test drive and to buy my can there and then, had planned to eat when I got in but was too late once crap was cleared out and car was sold 🙁
Cheers guys, especially for showing me that descent!!Posted 5 years ago
