- It's Steel City this weekend!
I was thinking of creating a heckle/board to take this year but what to write on it?!
Last years was brilliant. If anyone is wavering on whether to go- seriously go. Great atmosphere, food, etc and great for kids to watch/they wont get bored.
I went to a different race last year and it wasn’t the same/even I was abit bored nevermind the non-riders I took.Posted 3 years ago
Let’s be honest, it’s worth going just for the burritos. Add that to the awesome atmosphere, ability to be at any point on the track in about ten minutes and some amazing riding… Why WOULDN’T you go?
My Mrs loves it, and she has somewhere between little and no interest in bicycle racing.Posted 3 years agofitnessischeatingMember
Id like to go, but the GF isn’t sure if she will have any free time Sunday, and wants to spend at least one day climbing/biking this weekend…
So will probably not make it, and spend both days in the peak doing stuff rather than watching people ride bikes whilst drinking beer…
is it against the law to ride a bike with a can of stella on the go? 😉Posted 3 years agofitnessischeatingMember
Not going near greno/wharncliffe this weekend with an expectation to ride!Posted 3 years ago
If “her outdoors” wants to ride, I might suggest an early (for us) start get some “esoteric” peak riding in and go for the afternoon.
If she wants to climb, that will be it for the day
I’ll be there – riding in the Vets category
How did you manage to enter? I was there the first time it was posted up on the Friday night. Not poss.
Then on the Thursday 7pm. We stopped mid-evening ride so I could enter. Couldn’t get through then a few minutes later it said ‘all full’ except ladies category (they wouldn’t let me enter that one).
So I will be there shouting BASTARD! At you 😆Posted 3 years ago
How did you manage to enter?
You know how it was full? Well, it was full of people who managed to enter 😉
Any good suggestions for things to bash on other things to make supportive noise? Much as I’d like to shout at all the competitors, I’d also quite like to be able to talk the next day…Posted 3 years ago
I just got lucky I guess – entries went live around 7.10pm I think – another cock up with british cycling website. I just kept trying between 7 and 7.10 and got me a slot 😉 My partner at the climbing wall was a bit put out that I kept checking my phone whilst belaying to see if it had gone live 😯Posted 3 years ago
The farmers field as per usual is the best place to park- very friendly and organised properly and your putting money* back (not much) into the organisers/locally. If you park anywhere else (i.e. side of the road) you risk sitting your underbelly of your car or suspension on a tarmac-edge) and blocking throughway both ways on a narrowish road with people crossing/obscuring crossing.
*Its free to spectate so why not?Posted 3 years ago
Yeah – definitely DON’T park on the road or in the normal top car park, that needs to be kept free for normal folk to walk their hounds and horses and such. Farmer John over the road opens his fields for parking – it’s a couple of quid if memory serves.
Will post a google map link when our internet shuffles out of the dark ages.Posted 3 years agobombermanMember
Thanks I’ve just checked the website, parking is £2 and up the road from the forestry commission car park as mentioned.
I saw a guy on the Earthed videos with a bicycle frame and he was using it as a giant triangle and whacking it with a metal bar, I thought that was a good way of.making noise!Posted 3 years agoTraceySubscriber
We will be there. Abigale is in the Ladies category. Shes riding a black and green S Works Enduro so give her a cheer. Shes in the middle of her GCSE exams at the moment and also suffering from a fall on Potato Ally last weekend so any encouragement will be great but don’t mention her scratched framePosted 3 years ago
I managed to get a spot in seniors by spamming F5 for about 30 minutes straight. Only 3rd time out on the new whip, so there’s a strong possibility of a swift game of facey-floory.
I’ll be in purple, looking like a Huckmaster General 8) Say hello if you spot me (Green/red(pink) Orange Alpine)Posted 3 years ago
