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.

We almost make the perfect bike relay team, i'll climb them, you can whizz down them Saff

Flat Footed, loved your description of your downhill speed......very funny.    Although I think you got faster with each downhill we came to.  More than happy going down   it's the climbing that causes protests, as you may have noticed.

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

Glad to hear this all went off so well. Very sorry to miss it but the reasons were inescapable.

Suffers. LOL!!!

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.

April?

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

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?

Feck loads.

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.

AH, just looked at my Garmin and it says 'Elevation Gain 1309m'.

What about ride time?

Garmins are a bit pessimistic so you did even more climbing than that

ahaaaaa so if we were climbing.....there were hills.  Right?  You cannot climb up something that is flat.....not in my book anyway.
