Bit parky for silly rides so about 20 miles starting from Pirbright Village Green in Surrey, near Woking. Sunday was asked for by a potential attendee and I want to get Gladys out too.

Emphasis on social, flattish, nothing you have to get out of the saddle for, pub open for lunch after on the green, free parking, quiet Surrey roads, light traffic. And my fave descent zigzagging down through the Mytchett ranges.

And a warm up for Soupy's winter ride up Marlow way, (bring your single speed/fixie if you dare) that's a hint Soupy.

List so far

Potentially. We should probably do a brick after that.

Ha! Am racing that day - the 3 Molehills from Denbies!

'Racing' Gladys?

I was thinking about the Marlow ride today and wondering if the weather was a bit cold but you obviously think not. Can't do that till January though. 

edit - can't make 25th Nov

Hope the weather is in our favour.

If the route and lunch are good, it could be repeated in the new year for Soup Dragon, Gladys and anyone else interested.

I had Sunday roast at the pub on the green on a previous Dusty ride around his 'ripple' and that was lovely!  The ride wasn't half bad either!  Sadly, I can't make this weekend either!    More West Country visiting going on!

not looking good

I'm easy for most weekends if you wanted to try some other time.

I need to check the diary but might be able to postpone by a week or so. Any better for everyone?

The following week (1st Dec) is the Pirate Christmas do in Bristol!

16/11/2012 at 10:59

I can do the Saturday that week but not the Sunday.

I am happy to postpone if it suits, plus it gives me more turbo time.

I am free on
Sat 8th Dec
Sun 9th Dec, then busy until
Sat 5th Jan
Sun 6th Jan

I think I will do 25th anyway and probably 9th as well, for UC, steady and Gladys as well as everyone else!

And boy, have I got a route for the next beginners guide in the Spring! All new route, only 5 lumps but quality, not quantity. I hope to cordially invite Mr Smith along for his seal of approval too. Only a few months away...

Lol! I will tell him Dusty

He's doing Gatliff next Sunday and working on 9 Dec but as I've cycled more this year than he has (still hardly anything) he would really suffer if he could make it!!

His talent as an under the breath chuckler at other peoples suffering on the bike is unmatched in the solar system.

18/11/2012 at 18:43

I'll get the first ride out the way, then see if you want me back on a second one. Looking forward to it. Did a 90 min turbo session today, really need to start upping the time on my "long" ride.
