    Afternoon all,

    Just thought I’d pop my head up and let you know that I haven’t given up on the Pootles – it’s just this year has been a bit mental so I simply haven’t had time to organise anything! There will be a Pootle soon – hopefully before the end of the year so fingers crossed we’ll get one of those lovely crisp mornings for it. Maybe it could be my Christmas pressie to the regulars!

    Anyway, just wanted you to know that I’ve not given up on them and there will be more. With that in mind, here’s a couple of my favourites from years gone by….

    *looks out brownie recipe in anticipation of post pootle cakes* 😀

    Memories of pootles:

    1) walking upto strangers in car parks in the semi-dark and asking “do you STW?” and “can I have a fork, I’ll swap it for a bacon buttie?”.

    2) BFO’s

    3) Person A who I can’t remember :”I don’t think Hora recognises me, I bought this bike off him”
    Person B : “Don’t take it personaly, he sells a lot of bikes”

    4) My brakes not working and ending up in the hawthorn bush at the bottom of bradwell clough

    5) The DoE girls and the argument over whether they should be included in the video

    I could be persuaded to venture back up North for this. Always a good crack.

    If it’s a compatible date, I can offer the services of three Mias level 3 coaches if they’ll be any use to you.

    I don’t think Hora recognises me

    😆 I have an old head injury and certain things I struggle with (one of them is hora Jnr’s birthdate- ..yes).

    bunnyhop – I’m not much better at moment so if you want a mini-pootle…

    Rachel – would love a mini pootle. But it can’t happen yet as I still can’t hold onto the bars or work the brakes, which let’s face it, would be important.
    I’ll let you know though when I can manage the above and we’ll hook up.
    Hugs bunnyhop x

    wolfrider – everyone is welcome.

    Ooops, sorry Chris just realised I haven’t sent you the revised white peak route. 😳

    Currently riding round Dorsetshire’s finest bridleways bit will get it fettled and emailed when I get home.

    Christmas? I might even have a bike by then….

    ….probably big, though.

    The July 2012 pootle is the only one I’ve been on so far and it was a cracking ride, so I’m definitely up for another.

    There’s not even a confirmed Pootle yet! The main purpose of this post was to let you all know I’m not dead.

    Will you have some gloves too Jamie?

    I thought you provided them?

    In fact I have thrown all my gloves out based on that assumption.

    So what date is it? 8)

    ha ha – I remember coming along for the first time. I was petrified!!

    Then someone started making comments about my Nicolai now being really common. Was okay after that… 🙂

    I’m still yet to go on a peaks pootle or indeed have a proper ride in the peaks so I’d be up for this if I have the weekend you choose off work.

    Were they the girls walking up the steep descent from Bradwell edge?

    Yup 8)

    I think karma was dealing me a hefty dose by diving me into the wrong kind of bush thirty seconds later.

    Would love to join sometime even if only to say thanks in person for the route help @pook. My daughter is now back working in Leeds so perfect combination of ride and family time. Aiming for summer 2014 a still in rehabs from busted ACL.

    If you do a Christmas ride can I recommend this as the music, I think it would be perfect – I’ve been keeping this to myself for a video but frankly I’m no where near making one.
