  • Roll-call for the STW Springley Swingley Swinley sexy party…[/u]

    Right my sexy people, there was a little bit of confusion with the list of people coming to the ride, so here’s a thread purely for adding your names to the list of people coming along 🙂

    The original thread is *CLICKY – HERE – CLICKY* and lists lots and lots of details about time, place, parking, maps, rules, ability groups, passes and so on.

    Please take a couple of minutes to read the first post as chances are it will answer any questions you may have! If you do have any questions about the ride please ask them on the original thread so we can keep this thread as a list of people.

    ADDITIONAL INFO FOR THE RIDE[/u]

    Springley Swingley Swinley Video fun
    I’d really enjoy the opportunity to mess around and maybe create a little video of the event…

    So if you have a helmet/action cam please do bring it along! I’ll bring my netbook and grab copies of any video footage taken at the end of the ride. Don’t worry about the format your camera records in, chances are the editing program I use will handle it fine, but please set your cam to the highest resolution possible. 😉

    Riding and food times
    Meeting at 11:30am to split into groups and start riding at 12:00 sharp… meeting back at the LookOut cafe at 15:00pm-ish.

    Bring your own snacks and cakes if you want to save some money!

    As the different ability groups will all head off in different directions around Swinley, meeting back at 3ish should mean we all get to share that warm after ride buzz (and give me video footage).

    I’ve chosen a cafe time in advance as hopefully this will mean people can invite families along to the cafe afterwards if they want. 😀

    Just to recap:

    PaulD – leading 1 fast group
    thisisnotaspoon – leading second fastish group
    cinnamon_girl – leading a slower group
    DrRSwank – offered himself to possibly lead a second slow group

    There’s a couple of forum members searching for/offering lifts so please use/check the original thread to organise such kindness.

    THE LIST….[/u]

    If I’ve missed you out, or equally you can no longer make it, please edit yourself on or off the list by copy and pasting the whole list into a new post. If you’re bringing other riding buddies along or partners etc please edit the list to include a “plus 1”, “plus 4” and so on.

    Thanks everyone! Really looking forward to this, Swinley trail conditions were lovely last weekend and we keep getting these dry sunny days 🙂

    OHHH….

    If you’re copying and pasting the list (ideally from the person above’s updated list so we dont keep loosing edits by reposting the original list!) can you also indicate which group you’d like to ride in? 🙂

    Thank you all x

    Better re-name my group the medium group as I did my knee a mischief and haven’t ridden for the past month.

    Thinking:
    Watsons wander,
    Corkscrew,
    As much of the last gorrick course as I remember
    Satans Grotto (weather permitting, I’m not going to do it with a group if its muddy)
    Seagull
    Unnamed singletrack that runs back to stickler from lower star post
    Stickler
    Tank Traps
    Sandy gully
    Round the back of the resevoir
    the switchbacks, (no idea what they’re called)
    that really big roll in and jump up the other side
    Deerstalker
    Labrinth
    climb back upto the top
    (possibly repeated down some of the other runs depending on time/energy)
    rollercoaster (the other one that goes round the resevoir, past the scooter)
    down one of the runs to sandy cutting
    up to the whole 9 yards and back to the lookout.

    Polite request to keep this list updated. I will be handing out discount vouchers for my lovely lbs so need to ensure that I’ve requested sufficient!

    Thank you. 😀

    Blimey think I’d better bring my notebook – been a few times & don’t know the names of any of it 😳

    From the other thread (but worth noting in this thread too!)

    “There is a notice on the Junction of the M3 J3 & A322 saying A322 shut from this point on 18th midnight to morning of 21st. This could be down towards Guildford or it could be down towards Bracknell which if you came on the M3 would be the route to the bike ride. Please check AA/RAC before leaving to show alternative routes. It could also be very busy around the area if A322 is shut. “

    I am not from the area but my pal is, so this could be a good thing to be aware of?

    cinnamon_girl – Member
    Thanks for posting that up.

    Alternative is to go off at junction 4 and you then have a 15 minute drive to Swinley, ie A331, A321, A3095, B3430

    ALSO – the Reading half marathon is on the sunday 20th so if you’re planning on travelling through Reading then take note of these road closures

    if my counting is correct that’s about 88ish people!

    Medium-ish group for me. Slow for my plus one please.

    Phil,

    You have me leading the fast group but not on your lower list.

    I will be there, no worries.

    Did another recce yesterday at 0700 on a hardtail and it was running very well with very few wet patches.
    Jump gully should be renamed the velcro test strip but all else was good.

    I will recce again a few days before the ride.

    PaulD

    Good point! Apologies for i am an idiot.

    C’mon thats not the attitude, I bet half of these people wont show….

    i cant imagine everyone on the list turning up, but if you don’t think you’d be comfortable in the smaller groups (not all riding in one massive group of 60++people) then i understand 🙂 the whole idea of the ride is to be as welcoming as possible and it’d go against the reason i planned the ride if people got upset about some people choosing not to come!

    the whole idea of the ride

    This is a bike ride? No one said anything about bloody bikes, I thought slow medium and fast groups were to do with sexual stamina?

    Sod that, I ain’t coming either.

    Yep, in for this.

    Funnily enough, with a bike between their legs, all the ego disappears.

    hilldodger – rest assured phil is doing a really good job of sorting out groups and I reckon your fear will be unfounded. There’s quite a few riders who know Swinley well so we will be able to split the groups further if required.

    Do come – there’s a terrific vibe from these group rides, why else do you think they are so popular? 8)

    Hi

    I meant to add this on the previous thread:

    If anyone wants a really fast ride with no stopping or faffing and some trails over at Porridge as well, I’d happily show a few people round.

    Let me know if anone does, otherwise I’ll head out earlier.
