- Swinley NYE ride
I will be the chunky fella on a gold Giant Reign X. Meeting Atlaz at 9am (assuming he still wants to meet at that time) so will be going out for a quick pootle about and then back to the carpark for 9:45 to pick up forge197 and anyone else who fancies tagging along.
I hope nobody expects any speed from me as my bike is heavy, I have flat pedals on it and I feel like I have gained about 20 stone over the Christmas period. Looking forward to it anyway 🙂Posted 9 years ago
atlaz, was a bit weird though she was driving a silver daihatsu charade type car on the fire roads and it was funny seeing it come down the steep hill up the other side and straight though a massive puddle, didn’t stop to say anything just looked very out of place, think they’d give here a 4×4 !!
Only knew it was a warden as there was a sign in the front window.Posted 9 years ago
I’ll join you all for a ride, cheers 🙂 See you tomorrow in the car park, I’ll be in a giant 1car1 van!
I’ve just sorted out a half-year permit, obviously won’t have the permit band thingy, so hopefully they’ll take my word for it (if anyone actually asks!).
Cinnamon Girl, just emailed you my mobile number, just in case I get waylaid somewhere!

A big thank you to forge197 for organising this! It was great to meet so many new faces accompanied inevitably by all sorts of niche bikes 🙂
Hope you all enjoyed the trails at Swinley – they were running so well. Cold? Nah, just pretty and white!
Look forward to meeting you all again at the Swinley Forum Ride on 10th January, I will start a separate thread.
psychle – drop me an e-mail if you want some Chilterns routes, I know the area pretty well.Posted 9 years ago
My pleasure, good to see so many people willing to head out for the last ride of the year. I’ll post up some footage I took later today or tomorrow. Good to see such a range of bikes, Alfine to 29er to XC Ti awesome.
But the trails are in good health at the moment with the hard ground.
Look forward to doing it again on the 10th.Posted 9 years ago
thanks to the guides who showed us round, and to everyone that was there that made it an enjoyable end of year ride…
