- Whitwick / Coalville / NW Leicestershire Riders
If only 🙁Posted 5 years ago
Count me out tonight guys. No amount of stretching is easing up my back. Hopefully it’ll ease enough to get out for a spin at the weekend. If that’s the case then I’ll see you next week.Posted 5 years ago
Have a good one tonight chaps!
I will be there tonight, work has got in the way past couple of weeks.Posted 5 years ago
Smashing ride chaps, really enjoyed that (once i’d found my keys). It’s so silly that nearly all stuff we rode was cheeky. Was great to get the fatty properly airborne too 🙂
Agreeable evening in the pub just finished it off nicelyPosted 5 years ago
Great ride last night fellas – those two pints just rounded off a cracking evening. Plenty of fluids have been the order of the day for me today, but at least it stopped me sitting around and moping about the whole house move thing.Posted 5 years ago
Top evening all round,
I can confirm that bike maintenance in the office is indeed frowned upon, although not as much as some of the stuff that occurs in Danny’s place by the sounds of it.Posted 5 years ago
Glad you had a good one last night gents.. I’m moving around a little easier, so fingers cross for next week when we have heavy rain..Posted 5 years ago
No way I’ll be able to make Wednesday’s ride – clare’s away so i got both the kids 🙁Posted 5 years ago
Bring them along, they can carry the keys.Posted 5 years ago
I may be becoming rather more regular to these since I’ve just secured a job in Loughborough.Posted 5 years ago
Right then, you ‘orrible lot.
Who is up for tomorrow evening?
I am pretty certain I am going to make it. I’ve got ahead of myself at work and my wife (gawd bless her) has said I can come out to play in spite of her having to move house herself on Friday.
I’ve also got a bit of a random route in mind, one that takes in a fair bit we haven’t done before. It won’t be very technical, but should add some variety. I didn’t make it out at the weekend owing to a filthy cold, so you may have to humour me a bit, but if you don’t mind, then I sure as hell don’t!
7pm Man Within Compass Whitwick. Ready to ride at 7 if at all possible.Posted 5 years ago
Sounds interesting but I can’t play tomorrow 🙁Posted 5 years ago
I Will let you know tomorrow as I picked up a knee injury at the marathon on Sunday that has been giving me some issues.Posted 5 years ago
I’ll be there. At Home for a few weeks. Be interesting to c what u have got planned.Posted 5 years ago
Strangely enough scandal, my knee is also giving me some gyp, god knows why as I haven’t ridden since last Wednesday.
Grit your teeth and get there for seven, young man.Posted 5 years ago
I will be there (with a wonky knee)Posted 5 years ago
I’m not coming out to play tonight, stuff is just getting in the way! 🙁
If it all gets sorted at the weekend, I can come out next week.
Looks like it’s going to be a good evening weather wise and with Danny’s new route it should be an enjoyable ride. Have a good one chaps!Posted 5 years ago
Not looking likely if I’m honest Danny, still giving me a fair amount of bother unfortunately.
Shame as the weekend in Shropshire really got me gunning for as much riding as possible.
Need to keep my eye on this knee as it’s the same one that got badgered.Posted 5 years ago
it’s the same one that got badgered.

We had a nice ride last night – my ‘new bit’ involved heading out towards ‘Sheppy’ and riding back over the bridleway around Lubcloud Farm.
Done just for variety, I knew that this particular bridleway descent on the far side is not satisfactory given the preceding climb – even more so when there is a herd of calves in the way.
Still it was a nice evening for a ride, and we still managed a good run down through Cademan and Gracedieu. We were done by 9-15pm and supping a pint about 30 seconds later.
Big thanks to Jez and Bob for making it out – but more particularly for putting up with my sweating and snotting (even more than usual owing to my cold) and my general slow pace.
There is a very slim chance I will make it out next week, but it is very slim.
I guess the meet ought to be Woodhouse Eaves Village Car Park next Wednesday (10th) at 7pm????Posted 5 years ago
Wednesday is the 9th, fool :). I think I’ ll be therePosted 5 years ago
Would love to be there but not even had first physio sesh yet…I’m booked in but it is the NHS so my leg might have fallen off by then. Really missing it. Went to garage just to remind myself what my bikes looked like last night. Consoling myself tonight by fixing not 1, but 3 punctured tubes and maybe changing rear pads as they weren’t great last time I used it – rock and roll! \m/Posted 5 years ago
Hope the move goes ok Danielson – technically you’ll be even closer to the Curzon now 😉
Good ride last night. Arms covered in cuts and legs burning all night from the nettles. Even got asked if I was self harming today because of all the cuts i got from the overgrown thornes.
Should be there next week.Posted 5 years ago
The house move has happened (cue fireworks and popping of champagne corks).
Now, if I totally break myself at work for the rest of the week I would say there is a 75% chance of me making it out tomorrow evening – so who else is up for it?
7pm Woodhouse Eaves Village car park if anyone is interested – it will be the last time I can be out for a couple of weeks as we are going on hols on Saturday, so it would be good to make it out!
See you then?
P.S. No broadband at home at the minute, so can only read posts on here whilst at work…….Posted 5 years ago
Glad the move went ok.Posted 5 years ago
Literally just found out my first physio is this Thurs so will have an idea of how long I’ll be off the bike then.
So that’s a nope from me…again 😕
I am currently 50/50 to be honest.
Not been on the bike since the Marathon due to what I believe may be Iliotibial Band Syndrome.
Having said that, it seems a bit better today so I’ll see how I go.Posted 5 years ago
Congratulations on the move fella 🙂
I’ll be out tomorrow, should be an agreeable evening for itPosted 5 years ago
Many congrats on your move Danny!
I should be OK to play tomorrow evening. Currently it’s looking positive, fingers crossed…Posted 5 years ago
Nice one Danny.
I’m hoping to make it tomorrow, my once every three months appearance!
On another note, can anyone recommend somewhere local to get a wheel looked at? After a couple of years a couple of spokes keep coming loose. Stans rim if it makes any difference.Posted 5 years ago
Schmiken (sp)Posted 5 years ago
What Matt said.Posted 5 years ago
Schmiken (L’boro) is good – if he’s not up to his elbows in shitty nappies that is 😉
I will hopefully be there aswellPosted 5 years ago
Well what do you know! I can’t make it tomorrow eve! 😥 Not happy!! Also wont be out for a couple weeks. I’m on parental duties for the next two weeks. Hopefully I’ll be up in Filey camping with my daughter for a week. We’ll be taking the bikes but it’ll be gentle going though!Posted 5 years ago
Hopefully I’ll see you all at the end of the month……
Any other takers? Weather’s looking good, bit of rain yesterday should have glued all the trails back together and maybe even washed away some of the dog shit build upPosted 5 years ago
I am up to my elbows, but I’ve still got time to look at a wheel fathomer! Email in profile 🙂Posted 5 years ago
Smashin’ ride chaps, really enjoyed that. Was a bit ‘incident packed’ though 🙂Posted 5 years ago
Most enjoyable as usual. Great to see some of the usual trails in top condition. Still pee’d off that I bottled ‘the drop’ again. Next time…Posted 5 years ago
Yes – really good ride last night – even though I was the token unfit one sweating and snotting at the back.
Responsibility for next week’s ride falls to Rob or Matt to sort as it is on their ‘manor’ and I’ll be sipping a cold Kronenbourg somewhere on the Atlantic cost, en France (as they say ‘sur le continent’). Mange tout, mange tout – oh, chateauneuf du pape as Del Boy would have said.
Au revoir.Posted 5 years ago
Bastardos. I’ll be in stinky Wales next week listening to the kids fight, watching the rain lash down while drinking piss and vomit. Or something 🙁Posted 5 years ago
Oi Lowski…’stinky’ Wales?? Wash your mouth out young man!Posted 5 years ago
