    Babycham? That's a proper West Country (well, Shepton Mallet) drink… so count me in.
    I'll be around for Sunday probably too if I (and anyone else) can stand the pace…

    Crikey, a Quantocks ride when I'm actually not working (well not on the Saturday anyway).

    Bring a spare drivetrain if it doesn't dry up some.

    Wear waterproof socks for all the stream crossings!

    The Rose and Crown at Nether Stowey is a good B&B, decent rooms and bike washing facilities, price ok too – stayed there a couple of weekends ago.

    I'd love to come. I've been trying to get down to the Quantocks for a while, and things keep getting in the way.

    I'll bring a good-size hipflask of Scotland's finest. πŸ˜€

    pencil me in, where ye all meeting to?

    How long/mental will the ride and pace be? I'm assuming that group inertia will slow things down a little.
    Where and when for the start? Might determine where I end up staying.

    Looking forward to it. Seems I only ever ride the Quantocks in December. I really must get back when the streams are refreshingly cool, rather than ice-cube making…

    would a slow old fattie be able to cope with tagging along?

    sounds like a grand day out so count me in πŸ˜†

    would a slow old fattie be able to cope with tagging along?

    Hmmm not sure you want to ride a tag-along on the Q's πŸ˜‰

    Balls. πŸ‘Ώ Missus is in London that day with the car so I can't get there. I will ride in the Q's one day.

    I can give you a lift if you need one mate, don't think you're too far from me.

    Seeing as I've not ridden the Quantocks before, and have nothing else to do that day so far, there's no excuse for me not to be there really!

    So see you all there… πŸ˜‰

    I'm good for this one… I can do saturdays!

    I can give you a lift if you need one mate, don't think you're too far from me.

    That's very kind of you. I'm not thst far but it's in the wrong direction.

    mmb you haven't been on one of our rides have you ?5 mph is caning it !!!!
    cg would be good to see you before chrimbo !

    10-15 minute bursts of barrelling down some interesting trail, followed much gassing and bimbling back up followed by more gassing, passing around foodstuffs, flasks, mild insults, and smiling a lot.

    Repeat until legs go wibbly then retire to the pub/burger van. Sometimes there is cake. Really enjoyable in my opinion. If we keep this it risks evolving into a South West "scene".

    Raceheads need not apply. πŸ˜€

    Can't make this one i'm afraid OF. Family commitments, plus i might not have my new bike up and running by then.

    singlespeedable? i may put in a debut appearance so pencil me in.

    where are we starting from?

    Its not sorted where we will all meet yet. it will depend on numbers. Lets not make this a huge group ride like the last one. The winter days are short remember. It maybe a good idea to start from holford if we want a pub finish , although I'll need to check opening times. Im thinking the dog pound climb to start ?

    Oh don't fret Anna's got the cake covered (so to speak ! )Wouldn't think time wise we would fit in with pub opening .Gets dark 430 ish and i guess happy jack at The Plough doesn't open until 6 !
