    Given your riding ability Amy, I’m sure you could probably ride up there, grind us all into the ground and ride home 😀

    Trio, if the cars in use give me a shout, I’m supposed to be driving up with my mate but if he can’t make it I’ll have room (he might not know for sure for a couple of weeks tho).

    Might have to come along on this if I haven’t got a job yet, if only for the inevitable bust-ups between sfb and the rest of the world

    it’s not usually like that. I do a lot of shouting and bossing around and everyone lets me :o)

    If you come Simon, we can compare notes as to the route from Gars to Weasdale nurseries.

    We always take This one But it seldom seems used by anyone, let alone bikers. The gate as Gars is rusted to buggery.

    Do you take this also or This one?

    I will try and make it, there is nothing on the calendar but that doesn’t mean the car isn’t already in use

    If you need a lift from Bolton, I can pick you up on the way- I’m in Accrington..

    Drop me a line…

    If you come Simon

    I shall, provided I can get a lift from Lancaster, as we haven’t even scheduled a ride for that day yet. I might persuade a few more Bog Trotters too.

    Do you take this also or This one?

    yes, I always go through the rusted gate :o)

    sfb someone will give you a lift I am sure can sort nearer the date eh as all us from Rivvy area will be driving past anyway.
    Hell if you bring some boggies there will be about 50 of us
    Collective noun for a large group of mtb ers anyone?

    Surely it’s a ‘chain’ of MTB’ers 😕

    thanks Danny & Johnny, I’ll be in touch closer to the day 🙂

    I like ‘throng’ but perhaps ‘pong’ would be more accurate ?

    Surely correct training for ssuk would involve getting tanked up the night before?

    I may well be able to make this. Will be bringing my stepdad, who is reasonably fit and has volunteered to ride the SS 🙂 How long will it take to drive to the start point from Glenridding?

    Been looking forward to riding up north for ages, this sounds ideal. I’ll be bringing cake to appease the northern hoardes… Riding skills likely to remain rooted firmly in the south 😉

    Might be able to come – checking the diary as I type (well, will be in mo!)

    Count me in. It’s about time I did a STW ride. Especially seeing as I’ve never ridden around there anyway.

    I’ll try and persuade a friend along as well. 😀

    I’d allow about an hour – quicker to go north and join the M6 at Penrith I think.

    Looking fwd to this.

    about 5 of us going.

    I bet those hills have never seen as many folk

    not even when the boggies desecrated them …the tribe of heartless footpath reckers with their countryside recking mountain destroying leader

    PS dave that makes about 15 from chorley area alone Rivvy will be quiet that weekend.

    Past experience has shown the initial enthusiasm for these rides always exceeds the actual number who turn up, but in this case, jesus, I’ve lost count of how many there are.

    As per usual, I’ll post a roll call thread up the week before to get more accurate numbers.

    who shall have scant opportunity for transgression as the route is all bridleways (or road) 🙁

    I’m sure there must be some scope for a little bit of ‘cheekiness’ Simon

    Can’t make it as it clashes with the last brownbacks race which I have now entered, hopefully I will make one of these rides soon!

    I’m all prepared for the climb, I’ve been regularly pushing my 47lb DH bike uphill recently, got to help with this big push/walk

    Premier Icon simonfbarnes

    I’m all prepared for the climb

    it’s quite simple –
    1) locate the totty with the best arse
    2) follow :o)

    Premier Icon yoshimi

    simon, from experience, yes that does work 😉

    Premier Icon simonfbarnes

    all in the best possible taste, obviously! No drooling or pawing, and at a discreet distance…

    …or there’s the Veela option:
    1) locate the cutest totty
    2) ride a little way in front displaying your skillz

    Premier Icon Lootenant

    Now all this talk of totty is tempting me to join up..

    Room for another one (at the back)?

    It’s a fantasy – there’ll just be hordes of middleaged gutbuckets coughing their lungs out 🙁
