    Well?

    Has the impending hurricane stopped play this week?

    I’m not sure I can make it anyway just yet… Just askin, like. Besides I’ll only get you slightly lost.

    Come on someone.

    I’m still not fit. Man Flu might actually be proper Man Flu.

    Have you not seen the forecast? We’re all sure to be dead by tomorrow night! And the country will be lying in ruins!

    It’s not at all a hysterical overreaction by London media types because the Home Counties are in for a spot of rain ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Could I suggest a postponement? Wednesday or Thursday anyone?

    i have unpredictable hours at work for the next month or so, so i’m gonna have to play it by ear. but tomorrow looks unlikely currently…

    Is that an offer then binners?

    Wednesday or Thursday would be good for me…….

    Shall we do Wednesday night then? Harry might even have recovered by then!

    Any preference on location? May I be so bold as to suggest a Rammy tour de reservoirs, finishing at the brewery?

    Rammy’s fine by me.

    Breweries are always fine. Wherever they are.

    Wednesday,I’m out on a date, whoopee!
    Thursday would be good for me and maybe +1 (not the date,by the way) my mate Lee.
    If you have already decided on Wednesday that’s ok,next Monday,or is it going to be “The Wednesday/Thursday night pub ride” which would be far better for me as I always go for a big ride on Sundays,but if monday’s it is then Monday’s it is. I’m ok really anyway,just going on a bit…

    I should be ok – either Wednesday or Thursday evening is fine with me!

    Speak up oh glorious leader. What time’s kick off?

    NBT I’ll be up for this, assuming you mean the 4th?

    * suspects the Rammy contingent may struggle to get passports in time though as they rarely venture so far south ๐Ÿ™‚

    And wittonweavers will probably need jabs!

    Morning All. Weather doesn’t look too apocalyptic. (I’ve cursed us now, obviously) Shall we say a 7.45 start from the Shoulder of Mutton in Holcombe on Wednesday?

    As its at the right end of the Rake. Oh… hang on a minute… that then becomes the wrong end of the Rake later on. Oh well!

    Anyway… that gives us a variety of routes, depending on how boggy the moors are. I think they’ll be pretty bad. So I’m thinking up over the tower, Robin Hoods Well/Bucky Woodsl, Irwell Vale, up to Edenfield, and depending on time… turbines, Owd Betts

    7.45 start on Wednesday ok with everyone?

    sounds good. we walked up to the tower last monday and it was a bit boggy up there then, so that’s before the last week’s rain came down too!

    Sounds good to me. Mostly hard trails along that route so should be fine… Fair bit of climbing though! Might bring the bike in the car instead of riding over!

    All looking good. I’ll probably just head to yours Binners.

    No problem. I’ll have someone to wheeze up the Rake with. See you tomorrow

    In. Not ridden for two weeks so I’m likely to be crap (crapper)

    You going to be at the back with me then fella? Looks like, despite the weather being glorious at the moment, its going to be a wet one later.

    Also so you know. The Rake is presently closed to traffic. Though you can ride up there. Unfortunately

    as if it’s going to be anyone but me right at the back!
    i’m still riding that norco of mine anyway.
    with the rake being closed, i may park halfway up and ride walk up to the shoulder…

    Sweet Jesus! Is that El Guapo not built yet? We’ll have graduated through at least another 3 standards of wheel sizes by the time that thing hits the trails ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Why not park up outside ours and ride up with us?

    Why not park up outside ours and ride up with us?

    Presumably because he’d have to ride up with you! ๐Ÿ˜€

    it’s more or less built, but i need to get the brake hoses shortened and I’ve been away/busy the last couple of weeks, so no!
    i dunno where your current place is, i’d only been to the old house. text me your address and i’ll get there for about 7.15ish. i’ll probably get our guest rider to park there too, if she’s still coming out…

    Right, so is anyone still meeting at the shoulder of mutton then? Or is it chez binners tonight?

    Premier Icon xherbivorex
    Subscriber

    i still dunno where his is!
    so, i’m gonna park up at the rose and crown, then head up the hill to the shoulder of mutton ready for the 7.45pm off.

    Seeing as I’m a go-getting, thrusting widely-travelled type, I’ve moved 30 yards up the road. Texting you both my new address now. INCOMING!!!

    Its not raining yet. I’m deeply suspicious. I might get the Intense out tonight, for a rare outing, and join Team Inappropriately Over-biked ๐Ÿ˜€

    Premier Icon binners

    Right! If anyone is daft enough to be thinking of turning up unannounced tonight, I wouldn’t bother. By general consensus we’ve abandoned tonight. The weather is biblical! And the moors will be waterlogged anyway after this week! It is hauling it down out there! I’m going to the pub instead*! ๐Ÿ˜€

    * the Rose and Crown if you’re in the area anyway and fancy a pint

    Who’s this mystery guest then? It’s that girl out of the t shirt video, isn’t it? You decided the logical next stage was wet t shirt GoPro footage ๐Ÿ˜€

    i’m not at liberty to reveal who the mystery guest was, but she said you’re all soft shites for bailing!
    we had a great little blast around phillips park though, the rain stopped not long after we set off but to be honest even when it was coming down the riding in there was ace.
    next time…

    So much for Southern Softies…..you lot are all a bunch of Northern Nambies ๐Ÿ˜›
