    Mr Pook, is this singlespeed country?

    Last I remember riding up there was a pootle along the Tissington Trail…. way back in 97 😳

    @bikebuoy – I live in PootleLand and that’s all I have been riding for nearly 3 years – it hurts a lot but it can be done.

    EDIT: and it’s rigid.

    Skiprat I look forward to the conversation/company at the rear

    (Can we stop talking about rears now) πŸ˜‰

    Ta for the info, I’ll stick a 21t on the rear and gurn a bit then πŸ˜‰

    Ashbournes a bit too far to stay overnight isn’t it?

    Apologies people but if you think you’re on rear gunner duties, then you reckoned without one thing! Me! πŸ™‚

    Got my passport and my jabs, and I’ll be heading over from the north! Yay! Might even get the big bouncy bike out so I’ll be even slower than usual.

    @bikebuoy – about half an hour’s drive away on a clear road, could be a bit longer depending upon where Pookles chooses to meet.

    Permission granted! Now bouncy slow fast down, rigid gears or rigid single speed? never taken the single speed to the peak, will have to find a front brake though.

    We’ll for the route I expect we’ll be doing, some bits will suit a bouncy bike, other bits will suit a rigid….

    Funny wheel sizes on the other hand…..

    looks like I’ll either be on the rigid 29er SS or the tandem – we’ll see how Mrs NBT’s arm is looking before making a decision

    This is on the day before I go back to work 9 weeks after surgery, and 2 years of getting fatter, crapper and weaker. I may come along just as a contender for the slowest rider. πŸ™‚

    If a pootle is similar to a bimble ( the midlands equivalent) I’m in!…….very sedately

    Premier Icon Onzadog

    are the pootles that for from the midlands?

    For anyone worried about holding up the rear don’t worry, I guarantee I’m slower and less fitter, plus I only have a big bouncy bike which slows me down even more.

    Pop will you bring a muzzle and lead to make sure I play well with normal folk and don’t bite? πŸ™‚

    I’m going to do my best to be there. Will the route be tandem friendly?

    Taz I found castration is a good way of calming over exuberance in young pups – much better than a muzzle!

    I’m trying to keep it weather proof Jane so there might be some rocks

    Finally, I can actually make a Pootle event YEEEHAAAA.

    I plan to bake large quantities of mini-Victoria sponges (cup genre), iced; finished with either a Jelly-Tot, Smartie or other – open to suggestions/mini-poll?

    They’ll be carried throughout the day, in case of emergency πŸ™„ πŸ˜†

    Is this the meet-up that’s kind of a singles ride?

    Can I come, even if I never eat cake or any other form of confectionery?
