  • Swinley Forest Forum Ride – 10th January 2009
  • Hi
    Another first time poster here (waves hello).
    I bought myself a very nice bike in order to enjoy the outdoors and get fit, however it has been pointed out to me that I actually have to get out and ride. With that in mind I would like to join you on the ride if there is room for a wheezing bloke at the back.
    I like the idea of ‘gently’ easing into good habits and the ‘social’ pace appeals

    With enough notice I could be up for a SFFR Part II. This is the same date and time as the Chieveley Leg og the Evans Ride It series so a few may be up there. Out of interest anyone from round near Newbury?

    Mostly I reckon. Too many, I might not though, done my fair share of humongous rides.

    Blimey, 86 posts!!

    nicko74 – yes, well spotted. From experience, I know that blokes talk a lot, faff a lot and fettle a lot. You don’t really want me to act as the Faff Police do you? πŸ˜‰

    WCA – this is not good news, anything to do with your newest niche two-wheeled object? Seriously, do hope it gets better soon as, after all, the BigBikeBash needs its organisor. Do you want to post the flyers to me? Send me an e-mail and I’ll give you my address.

    Soma_Rich – sorry to hear you can’t make it but hope your big wheels enjoy the Plain tomorrow.

    Dr.P – will we see you? Conditions are great at the moment, much better than at the Mulled Wine Ride!!

    Welcome Strangelove, this is definitely the ride for you! We are expecting a few wheezers with New Year resolutions so come aboard!

    Gus – will you honour us with an appearance?

    XC_PK – this is the ride to do, much more fun than those others. Who wants to race when you can behave badly and have a lot of laughs?

    Think it’s mid-Wales, Montgomery possibly? Lovely scenery though, and stone circles, and mountains, and rain.

    I would really like to come to keep the weezy slow people company, but I don’t want to jinx it as I have had to pull out before due to illness. However I have been feeling much better and may even try a commute to work next week.

    curtis – see how you go. An option is always to ride one session, ie the morning, which will be a couple of hours then we return to the Cafe. So you’re never far away to bail out if needs be. It’s not a race!

    The good thing is that there will be some locals riding so you can always be directed back to the centre, it’s not a huge forest.

    Can’t wait! I am off the meds and my cough has almost stopped. I am gonna cancel my rugby next week as well, as this sounds much better!
    Now just have to decide what to put in the hip flask.

    That’s cos she posted her email address up!

    Stick your email address up and I’ll bother you some if you so desire πŸ˜‰

    Oooooh, and you live in Swindon, not that far from me!

    C-G; Afraid i won’t be able to make it πŸ™

    I’ve got tonnes of work to do for an exam a week later, and if my practice papers are anything to go by, I need the work more than a ride!

    Once jan’s over though, I’ll get a ‘dirty Dorset weekend’ on the go!

    DrP

    Hi DrP – sorry about yesterdays ride. Hopefully in the warmer weather etc…

    I’ll do my best to turn up. If my lungs stop hurting and producing green gelly men πŸ˜‰

    BTW I’ve been off the bike for 5 weeks now, will it kill me?

    not at all – i didn’t go out on mine for a good month until a week or so ago and i did better than normal πŸ˜†
