SSUK 2013 – was awesomnez, a huge Thank You.
Yeah great weekend…!
Well done Charlie for bringing together like minded souls for a sunny cider fuelled weekend with great riding !
Mrs Brack only has a few weeks until we have a brackababy so a slightly subdued event for me… But loved it all the same!
It was that hot I almost took my checked shirt off !!Posted 4 years agobikebouyMember
SSUK 2013 down in Swanage was awesomnez simple.
I want to say a HUGE Thank You to Charlie for both organising and being a most awesomnez Human Being.
We were bathed in most excellent sunshine, course was awesomnez, marshals were awesomnez, organisation was laid back awesomnez, all the Riders were awesomnez, the Square & Compass was Awesomnez.
Thank You.Posted 4 years ago
No worries, it was a very good weekend, nice to do the usual Sunday ride with hundreds or new riding buddies. Thanks for coming.
I think I may have redefined bikes races… On my lap I stopped for lunch, two nice beer gardens, managed 2 museum visits, good cake, tried a new ale…. post race poet was awesome, prize giving went well, only one person got kicked by a horse. Dead pig tasted good.
A few locals are mentioning cyclist going the wrong way down the one way. But I have told them it was people pre-riding the wiggle sportive.Posted 4 years agoajantomMember
A truly democratic event (as long as you weren’t a dick!), and nice to know that the 2013 SSUK title holder is a lady.
Thanks to people for cheering my crap tattoo 😆
Was one of the most fun weekends I’ve had in long time. Cheers Charlie, and everyone else.
*edit* just seen Joe’s reply above. He was feeling very poorly on Sunday, a special clap for him for making it round alive!Posted 4 years agomattbeeSubscriber
What a cool weekend. Drank far too much, didn’t ride quite as much as intended, had fun with friends old and new and made some more.
There were two pretty big cocks at the Square & Compass but I didn’t see any dicks…
My wife now has a bigger set of balls than me…

Another huge thanks to Charlie for such a cracking weekend, had a fantastic time despite trying to personally drink Swanage dry of cider, and rather regretting it the morning after!
T’other half had a cracking time too, and even Pete the dog appears to have enjoyed himself and is now asleep on the bed.
Obviously, falling off and spannering my arm and shoulder wasn’t part of the plan, neither was faceplanting into the only puddle for miles a few minutes later! But is all added to the shear lunacy of it all, and getting the blackberry vodka from the prize pot for it did help too…
So roll on SSUK next year, and when is the next event for the Dorset One Gear club?:)Posted 4 years ago
