    you had to send a postcard saying why they shoudl accept you.

    they want the right crowd and no crowding, apparently.

    quite right, keep out the riff-raff

    all the decent sponsor stuff just goes to the usual suspects anyway and the “in crowd” drink their own beer in the bar

    the best bit of SSUK is always the big ride-out, always has the people who want to ride their bikes rather than the ponces circling around the campsite looking “niche”

    Dave – sorry was a picture postcard of why ‘they’ should accept you rather than words

    it’s strange really, the 2010 ssec had a daft entry process and cheese, loads of riders got really into it. This years SSUK send in a postcard etc.. seems to have been met with complete apathy from most of the midland singlespeeders I know. Not sure why, but something just seems a wee bit off this year?

    Ton, we may well be having a surly midlanders “stuff you lot” we’re doing our own thing event, in which case you can have my entry if you need it.

    it’s the openness that really upsets me. a website, location and dates months in advance, a simple entry process, places still available. gah! how dare they.

    f*ck them. f*ck them all.

    I think the postcard entry would be enough, but go ahead, just wear protection

    i’m the only midland SSer i know

    You know me, in a sort of virtual, internet way, even if I’ve so far managed to avoid you in real life.

    …we may well be having a surly midlanders “stuff you lot” we’re doing our own thing event…

    If this is for real, I’m interested. I may even volunteer to help organise it.

    tbh, i think the whole entering process is a JOKE!

    if i want to ride an event i will pay for my entry and turn up on the day. im not going to bumlick and send a postcard asking “please let me ride, i think your great”

    i enjoy meeting up with old mates at ssuk. but this year i wont be! WELL DONE

    To be fair I don’t think you have to tell them how great you think they are. Written abuse will no doubt get you far.
    You could also pay for an entry and not come. That would show em

    you only need to lick a stamp to be fair, no bums required

    Have you seen how expensive stamps are these days? That’s enough to stop me going.

    I went out on me bike and took a nice photo in the snow, It was blooomin’ mint! It wasn’t that much hassle as I was riding me bike anyhow! I posted it and got ‘Accepted’, As did everyone else who’s sent one in! Infact, I’m gonna go out for a ride on me bike and take another and post it off again and have two entrys! Just for the FUN!!! See you in September It’s gonna be mint! I’ve heard there may even be some cycling involving Stupid ‘Niche’ bikes! My training is well under way, last week was Badger ales Next week is Wytchwood, then Black sheep, I’ve already put on 4lbs AMAZING!!!

    I think this entry process is a fabulous idea! Certainly a good way to pick out all the dead wood and keep it to a suitable class. This should be done more often and at places like music festivals to keep all the trouble makers out. My postcard is on its way! πŸ˜€

    I too am utterly outraged that i had to print out a picture and cover it in sellotape. The fact that i had to walk to the end of the road was utterly outrageous!

    How dare the organisers demand we have a bit of fun making silly blue peter arts and crafts while they organise camping, course, food, beer and prizes for us. Bastards the lot of them.

    Frankly i’m far too busy moaning on STW to carry out this 5 minute job!

    πŸ˜€

    See you all there SSUKers!
