    Last weeks route was an absolute blinder!!! So for that reason…

    I’m in!

    I was a bit worried that you were all going to batter me after dragging you all through the third overgrown mess. Most of that route is a lot better in winter ๐Ÿ™‚

    Definitely not Terrahawk. The whole ‘Nam’ feel just added to the appeal

    Jungle? Blokes with guns, on drugs? all part of the fun! ๐Ÿ˜€

    After the success of not doing Philips this week weโ€™ll take a look at the other side of the valley next and do Waterdale / Hurst Woods / Canals / Prestolee / HTN bombhole (bravery permitting) / Clifton and probably just one lap of Philips to finish off.

    8:15 at The Church Inn.

    Bring beer money.

    Bring lights.

    The weather looks good again because God loves mountainbikers.

    Turbines the week after!

    Magazine deadlines permitting (which they will, because God loves mountain bike journalists*) we’ll be there. On the tandem!

    * Pushing it a little I think…

    Was going to volunteer to host the Darwen one on 15th.

    It’d be a change. We could always do Edenfield/Cragg/Turbines the week after. What does our glorious leader think?

    Glorious Leader? Errrโ€ฆ I couldnโ€™t give a toss as long as I get to ride my bike and have a cold drink and a bag of crisps afterwards ๐Ÿ˜‰

    We wanna get loaded*! And have a good time!

    Lets do Darwen then. Rode it 2 weeks ago and the trails are drier than they’ve been in a few years

    Chipps, If you and Clover are riding “The Beats With Two Backs” we may have to give the Bomb Hole a miss otherwise there may not be an issue 84 or any more fancy knitted items.

    Right then – the Lost Kingdom on the 15th it is then. Then.

    I shall put it in my diary, drinkypoos afterwards? I know riding home is easily doable now ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Which of Darwens premier hostelries will we be starting and finishing in Mr Sparkle? I can’t remember which pub we used to nip in as we always just referred to it as the Flying Bottle ๐Ÿ˜€

    The Royal Hotel, Tockholes.

    Its a nice little boozer, that. Perfectly located for the gentleman who has worked up a thirst on his velocipede, on Darwen Moor

    8:15 meet up?

    Anyway…. We’re getting ahead of ourselves here and some plonker is going to turn up a week early, but it is good to have a plan.

    Where are we having our Christmas do?

    MrSparkle

    Yes – 8.15pm start. It’s the law apparently… ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Yes – I’ll shut up about the ride two weeks off now, to save confusion.
    Christmas do? How about the Royal Hotel, Tockholes? ๐Ÿ˜€

    Binners, did you do that poster? It’s brilliant ๐Ÿ™‚

    Cheers Molly. I did indeedy. Featuring our patron saint. If anyones interested, I may well get some printed. Only a one colour silk screen. They’ll be cheap as chips

    Is that not Smoking Man from the X-files then?

    D0NK – they do have some seriously dangerous ciders. The sort that have wasps floating in it

    Roll call for tonight then? Its going to be a sweaty, nettley, midge-fest for sure

    And someone is road-testing their freshly modded cobblers ๐Ÿ˜€

    I’m in, just to see a grown man cry the first time the saddle clatters him in the cobblers. 30 miles on a bike is going to hurt.

    It’ll actually be closer to 40 by the time we make it home. The phrase ‘baptism of fire’ springs immediately to mind

    I predict that he will throw up before he even climbs out of Rammy.

    unlikely, but not impossible (i’m still in between bikes, strictly speaking- the norco needs new shock mount bushings and a brake bleed, and the el guapo needs a load of new bits that i don’t own yet). if ali wants to get out for a ride, then we’ll both be there though. but not on a tandem. that’s weird, and we don’t own one.

    I’ll be there

    We’ll be there.

    But sadly not on the tandem as the tandem-fettler disappeared into the shed yesterday for a quick fettle (or whatever you lads do in there) and emerged with a list of tandem repair items that can’t be sorted by 8.15pm tonight. ๐Ÿ™

    The good news is that my bike has gears again (after unilaterally turning itself into a single speed for the Lee Quarry race). But darn, I’m going to have to pedal now!

    I think I’ll tape my plums up. Do you think that will help?
