    @savoyad sorry I missed you too and didn’t wave 😂

    Thanks @oppnorth preparation for me was key well rested and then just focus on the end goal, it’s definitely not an easy ride out and I did with 4.8miles have a wobble and questioned if I could do it, but took some time to recompose myself and pushed on, as I’d be annoyed to be that close, albeit still a long way from the finish climb wise.

    Well done Garry and Forge.

    The wife suggested I might want to do the Uber next weekend as we have no plans now (tier 3 so other than a walk not a lot we can do).

    @robbo1234biking thanks, that sounds a good idea I’d probably give it a miss doing two weekends in a row though if you doing a group ride 😂

    Are you just repeating that oopnorth to make sure you def don’t do it!

    @oopnorth – have a go, once your into it you maybe surprised what you can do.

    Bloody phone…resent it just to make sure you got the message 🤣🤣🤣

    Nah…after today there was no way I could have done an Alpe plus an extra 40km…its just beyond my abilities right now. I’m not used to 100km distances and it showed this morning

    More practice…

    Premier Icon robbo1234biking

    You could do it oopnorth. There is only one climb really before the alpe and just take that super easy! The alpe will be hard but aim for 7 hairpins and a 5 min break. It’s all about little bites of the elephant – easier to get you head around!

    Had a huge pork shoulder, mash and carrot meal for tea and still hungry tonight!

    If no one is up for a group ride then I might start early (like 6) and then if anyone wants to join for an hour just choose to ride with a rider and join for a bit.

    I’ve been eating all day…bloody hungry after that effort and the full bottle of red helped.

    I’ll join you for some of it Robbo, for sure. The Alpe killed me when we did it on the 4 horseman, I don’t want to go near it again for a bit!

    The wifey is working next weekend so I ll be riding indoors only.

    can make either day for the Uber or anything else, around 7.30 is about the earliest I’d like to start though.

    I’ll say a tentative ‘yes’ to the Uber. Once I know family plans for weekend, I’ll let you know a preference for Saturday or Sunday.

    @robbo1234biking have accepted the commute will make for a recovery ride.

    Premier Icon robbo1234biking

    6.45 am commute club if anyone wants an invite? Volcano climb so about 20km with a 10 min climb at the end.

    See you in the morning forge!

    Cheers @forge197 I think I would have ducked out of that if I was left to my own motivation!

    Think I will wait and see how I feel after tomorrow night before committing to the Uber on Saturday. Legs were a bit fatigued this morning but felt OK after getting up the Volcano climb and clearing them out a bit.

    Premier Icon forge197

    @robbo1234biking I’d have done the same if I hadn’t committed, as didn’t need the mileage.

    That said felt good, and feel all the better for it, fastest up the climb in the last 30 days albeit that was the Horsemen and Uber rides.

    So how is everyone’s legs feeling this morning? Is the Uber still in the offing? Given the last race next Tuesday is up the Epic KOM, I would definitely prefer to get an extra day’s rest and do the Uber this Saturday. Works better for family stuff too.

    Premier Icon oopnorth

    I’ll join for an hour or two if you do it.

    So if this is done will there be no Sunday ride this week? If anyone wants I can set up something nice and tame for an 8am start, like a Yorkshire ride or something.

    I’m going up the Alpe on Friday to finally tick off my Tron bike if anyone wants to join me I can set up a meet-up. Start at 7:30, not going to be a crazy pace, 70-75 minutes for the climb ish and 10minutes for the lead in.

    Am I assume hoppy? If so pop me an invite, not going to promise but I’ve the day off so may join you before I start on jobs.

    Premier Icon robbo1234biking

    I am doubtful for this weekend for the Uber – hoping to rode a proper bike outside on Sunday and wont have time with family stuff on the Saturday. If I have time can join you for an hour or so!

    I have signed up to do the Bologna TT on Friday at 17:00 to make up for only doing 12 minutes yesterday!

    Weekend, Swinley Summit is re-opening 🙂 So it’s jumps and trying not to break my hand again 🙂

    So it’s everyone doing their own thing this weekend then? Suits me as I can ride around my DIY I have planned, might just jump onto some Zwift arranged events in the mornings.

    only via email or text etc isn’t it? You cant forward onto a follower on Zwift though can you?

    @robbo1234biking well no, obviously, this is zwift. It’s a big step forward though, you couldn’t even generate a link on android previously.

    Premier Icon robbo1234biking
    Full Member

    Would be so handy if you could as a couple of people didn’t have the link last night so I had to log onto here and use the messaging system. Wondering if that is what caused my issue as I left Zwift running whilst opening a internet browser (3 month old laptop but this is Zwift!)

    I don’t really fancy the Uber solo so perhaps lets pencil it in for when a few are willing and able to do it. I might try the Alpe again as I must be due the wheels by now. Need them for Tuesday;)

    oh god no! [7.30] PM I’m not a monster.

    You realise that’s a good hour after any respectable adult (10 hours if they’ve children) will have started drinking on a Friday? Sounds pretty monstrous to me.

    Premier Icon robbo1234biking
    Full Member

    Yeh 7.30am would be my preference to do that lol. I would be drinking beer by 7.30pm!

    Premier Icon mrhoppy
    Full Member

    Yeah but if you rode up the Alpe you don’t need to do much drinking for full effects.

    Full effects? 7.30pm on a Friday and you’re not already indulging in STW approved hipster brew?

    You’re a yoof aren’t you?

    I cant do the Uber this weekend but have put in a short ride for Sat morning if anyone wants to join in. Sent an invite out to about 60 but if I missed you off let me know.

    Out and back again on MTBs!

    Premier Icon forge197
    Full Member

    I’ll join you Saturday that length and the start time suit perfectly with how I saw the weekend and was just wondering what do, so will do this and FulGaz ride I think.

    Will make sure I have swapped to the MTB before the start.

    I’ve signed on robbo – not sure quite what my weekend looks like at the moment mind so might be I jump ship

    Premier Icon savoyad

    I’m in. I hope to make it to the end, failing that at least to the summit of the volcano. MTBs around the desert will be unusual.
