- Whitwick / Coalville / NW Leicestershire Riders
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
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
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
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 😉
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 agofathomerSubscriber
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
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……
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
