The SUN is shining, the cyclists are out!
Wow, what a difference a week makes! I’ve never seen so many cyclists out at one time before! The Woburn woods were humming to the tune of freewheels, hastely grabed sqreeching brakes, and even the Dog walkers had time for a smile and a cheery “morning”. Spring it seems, has sprung (temporarily probably)

Great to see some sun although unfortunately it appeared as if it also brought all the idiots out for their sunday afternoon drives. I have never seen so many ridiculous overtakes on blind corners or into oncoming traffic in a single ride as I witnessed today.Posted 5 years agomdavidsMember
Best weekend in bloody ages, first road ride this year on friday evening, commute home from work yesterday that didn’t involve me cursing a 20mph headwind and another road ride today in glorious sunshine. I’d almost forgotten what blue sky looked like. Loads of cylists out oop north today as well.Posted 5 years agoThrustyjustMember
Plan a. ride road bike Saturday , MTB sundayPosted 5 years ago
Fly in ointment of plan a. Change headlight bulb on daughters focus friday night, wake up Saturday morning with a trapped nerve in right hip and back area. 😥
Plan B. Dont sit down, keep moving , swear at the blue sky as you see mate ride off without you. 🙁
Plan C. Wake up Sunday morning, hobble downstairs, take big painkillers, give it an hour and ride in the sunshine for 30 miles on the road. 😆
Probably going to suffer later, but hey, got out and so did so many riders. Most miserable one was a bloke on an MTB, who blankly ignored the smile and ‘hello’ .SandwichSubscriber
Left in sunshine for a short ride down the Orwell Estuary (possible cheeky) by the time I was past the country park the mist was in, temperature down 4 degrees and ice on the foreshore. There was pushing across some mudflats and I looked a bit odd in dark glasses in the mist!Posted 5 years ago
The one road rider I saw conformed to the STW stereotype, I think he was enjoying himself. Mud as bad as it ever is at this time of the year off-road in these parts.
First spring ride here too – 55 miles round beautiful Kent lanes.Posted 5 years ago
Until I took a damp corner too fast and tried to use my chin for braking… steri strips in my chin and a chipped forefinger, ripped bibs, bar tape and brake levers…
That’s me out for 4 weeks just as the weather gets better 😥hh45Member
Lots of mountain and darksiders out in Surrey Hills today – Peaslake car park was chokka. Trails still too wet really and have obviously suffered over the last 10 months rainfest.
Had a good 38 mile ride but had to avoid some favourite bits on Holmbury and Pitch as just too wet and didn’t want to add to erosion.Posted 5 years agostanfreeMember
Tour of East Lothian Audax in the beautiful sunshine today , 78 miles door to door. Great turnout and only one puncture , Also a highlight was a banned stw member arriving cursing ‘Miserable ****in roadies’ for not saying hello whilst surrounded by about 200 of them at the sign on.Posted 5 years agocrashtestmonkeyMember
loads of prats out for first motorbike ride of the year, overtaking on solid whites through rail crossings at 90 in a 50 and then wobbling around the next bend* 🙄
didnt see many roadies out but saw an army a few weeks ago when it was dry and much colder.

Hah. One of those maneuvres that can be perfectly safe but always marks the rider out as a cock.
We were going left, but a good job we weren’t going right and failed to indicate our intention….but yeah, it wasn’t dangerous as we were doing what he expected us to do (seeing as we were turning left & indicating so).Posted 5 years ago
A bit like the RLJing cyclists….
