stw ride 6th sept lee quarry role call
Who's in then?Posted 8 years ago
Usual crack 930 meet at futures park – will post map later (or someone will). will have to be ready to roll at 10 to follow racers for the 1st few yards (have sorted this with the brownback guys)
have sorted a slightly shorter route than the usual epics to allow time to play in rossy's top mtb play area at the end (shorter doesn't mean easier tho'just means the ups and downs are a little more compacted!)
also can we all say happy birthday to lowey cos its today (i think)
4130 – lee quarry is in rossendale in lancashire it is the site of the brownbacks racing and the classic w/ender that there was discrete rumours about on herePosted 8 years ago

OK i am in cake, sarcasm and blood injury as usual then

Can't do tomorrow the Mrs and kids have a full day sorted for me, as well as 2 x new tyres for the front of the Xsara.
Saturday night we have got rid of the kids (wink, wink) I know it won't mean a thing to you not having any, but trust me if you and your Mrs have em, getting rid for one night is a big thing. That said I will be looking to get out over the weekend at some point.

Yes there are no issues with what is being planned, however
I would ask that STW riders obey the parking restrictions and listen to the marshals/ team
please stay below the main gate until the first start as you will not be appreciated on the main track at the mass start
the good news is that you can get yourself a pre-ride feed and hot drink from our caterer who should be setup from 8ish and check out grass roots racing at it's rawest
If any of you can't ride and want to help with the race we would love you to get in contact email@example.com
have fun and enjoy the local trailsPosted 8 years agomarsdenmanMember
Right on my bliddy doorstep well, compared to the recent rides – Check
MrsMM got her own plans for the day (not that it would matter, but tis nice) – Check
Laid low with bronchitis at the mo – CHECK – not a happy bunny 👿
So, currently, as i'll still have the day to myself….
option 1 – still be ill
option 2 – come over and hone photog skills on the brownbacks race
option 3 – a mate can arrange a pit pass for a classic car race – more photog opportunity
Keith – thanks for the e-mail – unlikely i'll be down the pub tomorrow – see above – tempting though it is i'm trying to minimise germ spreading…. 🙄
Not going to stop me saying – Have fun all!Posted 8 years ago
If anyone is not upto riding and fancies marshalling we are down on numbers at the moment (stealing Grahame doesn't help)
we will of course be eternally grateful as well as looking after you on the day. Turn up for 08:45 and you wil be finished by 13:00
email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help
ThanksPosted 8 years agoyoshimiSubscriber
I'm gonna have to give this a miss which is a shame, I've just not beeen getting in enough miles and probably struggle on a 30mile+Posted 8 years ago
The fitness that I build up after the the Grizedale fiasco seems to have deserted me in just a month – back on it now but the the 12mile easy rivvy loop I did last night had me breathing through my backside 🙁
few bits for sundayPosted 8 years ago
the usual 930 meet time but can we meet by the stone blocks on the main car park to avoid getting mixed up with the racers!
also we HAVE to be ready to ride at ten because we have to follow the 1st lot of racers up the struggle into the quarry if this goes wrong we will have to go round the road which would be a shame (the brownback guys are ok with this)
Paul – raine is happy to marshall in my absence and she will bring the van if you wish to use it will ring you sat re this
yoshimi – the route is not as long as some of the previous ones to allow time for people to have time in the quarry
dj any chance you can bring the pace fs so I can try it on familiar ground please
