It was good to meet some new people and put faces to names. Thanks to Smiffy for a great friendly ride, with sadistic laughter thrown in. Despite my moaning, I was enjoying myself, honest. Thanks to you and Random Man Chris for helping with my punctures.(when I say helping, I obviously mean doing completely with me looking on ) It wasn't flat though so shut it!!!!
It would be good to love those hills.....love the down just dread the ups.

Great day out. Now pizza'd, wine'd, showered and actually feeling warm again!
Loved the route. Not quite a sicko for the up-hills, but really enjoyed some of those descents - even if it felt like being shot blasted by the ice cold rain - yeah - would have been better fun if it had been dry. But hey ho! The weather maketh the story.
Thanks for organising this Smiffy, great to catch up with you and some other old faces as well as meeting some new ones.
Thanks to Chris for guiding us after we got separated as I didn't have a clue where we were!

No one mentioning the tit nuzzling, then?
Barley's or the horses?
Top ride today guys, thanks to all for your fab company, it was most enjoyable in some perverse sort of way!Food, beers, shower and more food done. Some sleep might be in order now if I'm going to manage a run tomorrow.
And Dustboy I'll let you into a secret...............Smiffy was struggling too
More than happy going down
Damn, I was happy to settle for cream eggs!
Glad to hear this all went off so well. Very sorry to miss it but the reasons were inescapable.
Smiffy doesn't struggle, he just lets you think he does.
Barlos is very quiet?
Tootles loop followed by a run? Absolutely. If we can start the loop from Newlands, I have a perfect off road run course. 10K. Flat. Course is available on www.allabouttriathlons.co.uk March G3 course.
Plus, of course, Newlands burgers after.
Just wait till I get my chest sorted out then I'll show you A couple of guys need to realise that brakes are only for stopping you crashing into cars at the bottom of hills. Getting to the bottom as FAST as possible is FUNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN, even on the bends And ladies thank you for those cute bottoms in tight lycra Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
Oh and any chance of a tit nuzzle girls
Nicko you're verging on the pervy now... Serves me right I spose.
Has any one got a record of how much total climbing we did yesterday? I don't think I've got it set up on my Garmin. Just interested.
Hen I will plot it on Memorymap and see, I have been trying to do it on Bikely but that is playing up. The course evolved from the planned one after Groombridge but I don't think it is much different from that which was 1370mts. I expect somewhere between 24 and 27 metres a mile, that's 2688 to 3024 for an IM distance ride so everyone should be very pleased with their acheivement
Has anyone got a rough actual ride time as my bike computer was not working?
I have also just recalled Flat Footed flashing his ar$e at one point. Smiffy missed it but luckily I was looking in the right direction for a change.
What about ride time?
Garmins are a bit pessimistic so you did even more climbing than that
