So DB am I riding over to your house and we both riding there  (thats option A) or are you going to be a total gaylord and drive your car to the top of Newlands like a total gaylord wuss? (thats option B)

If you pick option B I will go on about it endlessly for the next 4 years.

DB, is there a map of the route available anywhere (e.g. map my ride?), if so can you post a link?

Schmunks did it, but not the bottom loop bit, we won't be doing that, just out and back - ish.

Is anyone else ever so slightly scared and wetting themselves over this

So let me get this right. I am cycling past your house, and then the short what  10 miles to newlands, meanwhile you are getting in your car? Man up you wimp.Its not like its even lumpy till we get to Newlands! If you are getting in your car, by default you are buying me cake all day. Whats the point of having an expensive bike if all you intend doing is driving it about like some kin lord of the manor in the back of your car. I could understand if you had to ride 20-25 miles to get there (like me!) but no, its half an hour away. Did you buy those expensive wheels as the lighter weight would save you petrol driving them about?

Ride your fkn bike. It will make you faster (tm CRaB) NFRS.

It will be fun Schmunks. DB will fall off at least twice (he always does)

Hills will make you a tough cookie, and theres no rush getting to the top, its just about getting there. Although feel free to annoy DB , I will be.

Youll be fine, we'll look after you, there are chips at the end

05/10/2012 at 16:22

I would prefer a pasty

Last time I did this I ended up walking parts of most of the hills!!

I am not built for up flats and am really out of shape even by my standards so I'll be bringing up the rear most likely

And they are super good at looking after us tail end charlies

Bassy - spare us all. Let him drive, it's far less faff.

05/10/2012 at 17:18

Well its a bit wimpy when you live on the doorstep init.

05/10/2012 at 17:58
He's got a bad back Bassy!! And everyone else wants to set off in daylight! Sad I'm not going to make this! Would be good fun. Enjoy yourselves!

I am looking forward to this

Is it a 9 o'clock meeting ?
05/10/2012 at 18:15

He always has a bad something or another.

05/10/2012 at 18:23
It was DB's Surrey beginners rides that got me started and believing I could actually do a long distance Tri. I wouldn't have got around the Outlaw without him and was gutted when he didn't make it! Top bloke in my opinion! and I still owe him a pint or three!!

9am Newlands for 09.30 kick off, faff or coffee in the middle bit. Welcome Slag and BuMu.

The more the merrier

I have now actually moved the bike from the garage to the house and have removed the MDF dust from it

Now need to remove tri bars, do tyres, find all spares, sort kit, print arrival instructions and prepare to get up at silly o' I can push my bike up some hills
