I'm not at the moment as I'm keeping the TT bike, using it as a stand alone road bike mainly for road racing and sportives, I seem too be collecting bicycles at the moment! I pick the new one up on Wednesday

Nice work.  I don't know much about bikes but love them and am really interested in all the different sorts / flavours / combinations etc.  The Scott looks very nice - what colour is it !?

What time are we meeting and where, total ride distance?

I dont know the abilities of those coming on Saturday but ive not ridden my bike for 4 weeks, im also not great on hills so if we're doing say 60 miles 14/15mph maybe an optomistic average speed for me.

I dont want to hold anyone up so will judge on the day whether to let you all go on and meet me back at the finish.

Barley - plan to meet 10:00 Sat morning outside Starbucks in the middle of Henley.

The lap is 37 miles roughly and we're planning two laps, but there are many out and back sections where we can re-group etc. Its suppose to be a recce not a race round - honest!!

I am just so jealous, and sorry I can't come out to play.

19/06/2013 at 15:11

Blisters - sorry you can't make it too...would have been good to meet...we'll just have to do another one...although I am a fair way away I am keen to see as much of the course as possible...

Raf - Thanks for organising - really appreciated

Bouncing Barlist - don't worry about speeds, I am keen to take it all in

Just been for a bike ride...what a beautiful day...

Take care

Oi blisters sort it out mate, pull some strings get yo ass down too Henley on Saturday!?!!

 

BB no one really cares about speed and such and there is only really one decent hill the rest are just long drags.

 

picking up my new bike tonight so should be exciting shiz biz

Whizz kid - brilliant day to be collecting a new bike...enjoy !

With all this talk of new things (your bike, Blisters aero bars, Raf's wheel) I am feeling the need to treat myself !

I agree about hills....nothing too nasty.

It sounds like fun - especially the Starbucks part Barlos - it'll be just like IMDE !

I can't make it this weekend but will keep an eye out in case you repeat the ride.

Have fun chaps.
