So, who's up for a bit of Box Hill pain?

Quick 8 mile run round the Box Hill Loop (start at the car park at the top, finish with a sprint up the zig zag), jump on your bike for 3 quick loops, then hop off for another swift 8 miles and a scenic dash for the line up Box Hill zig zag once more. 

Simples, no idea where the name came from!

Joddly's not got anything else on round then to focus on so she'll probably rock up for another AG podium!

I'll be there with a cow-bell and a mocha-choca-latte waiting for you lot to avoid the over busy roads with irate locals and thick thick fog.

But I'll be there in March to race.

What have I deserved for this abuse?

I won't be racing as I won't have a bike or anything after just moving back. Will hopefully be there to join Cat for a latte!

looks like my type of race

Unfortunately it's my twin son's birthday and I've promised them that I won't be doing anything except parkrun

Wabby, just tell them your parkrun may take a bit longer than usual, no problem.

I could be tempted to join IronCat for a hot chocolate and yelling at people.

The fog did make it more challenging, but I think the locals are resigned to the cyclists now, although still do not understand the principles of overtaking safely.

GB you can borrow my old bike if you want.

01/10/2013 at 22:16

I'm on for the hot choc and shouting option wimping out for me

It's OK thanks BH... I'm just making excuses  I also haven't trained for 18 months / poorly ankle / washing my hair (delete as appropriate)

GB, I could lend you my fixie, man of your calibre and all that.

Let me repeat - the bike excuse was just that, an excuse  (and not entirely true!)

03/10/2013 at 22:05

No training for 18 months GB? not according to your FB posts

Anyway you'll still leave most of us for dust!

haha... no proper training. More arm bends in the pub than anything!!

So the day is nearly here, who is injured/ill ? Any more spectators expected?

I plan on going for a swim first thing then parking at the bottom of the hill and will walk up as my exercise, so should arrive by the time most have done the first run (8.45am), followed by at least one hot chocolate drink.

The warning signs for the locals have been out for about 2 weeks so expect them to have forgotten it is on and drive like idiots along with other cyclists just getting in the way.

Weather forecast is sunny with showers, or showers with sunny bits.

House move was delayed until tomorrow so I'm out. Shame,  but I'll be there in March.
