I'm thinking of riding round the course on Sunday 10th June. Only planning to do 1 lap of each loop and if we ignore the lake, should bring it to around 80 miles.

Personally, I'm looking to treat as more of a social ride, so happy to do whatever speed people want to. Depending on terrain, I tend to average between 14-16mph, but I'm more than happy to go slower.

Probably worth mentioning now, I've got zero local knowledge!

Anybody up for it and fancy joining me?

I've been thining about it myself!! May well join you! I have to admit that i quite fancy a flat ride for a change! I will need to double check my calender though. I promised to go to a 7 year olds birthday party around that date!

I'll be doing it that weekend, though was contemplating taking the TT and seeing what race pace feels like, weather dependent. I'm more than happy to wait in the pub....

LS - Let us know. My calendar seems pretty full so this is the only weekend I can make now.

SE - you can get the beers in then!

Cake - I'm really not fussed about speed at all. Just wanting to take in the scenery and try and get a slightly better idea for the day... very much a social ride from my point of view...

B*gger, I would have loved to have joined you but I promised the OH that I would go support him at Bala that weekend.

I might be interested in this and 14 - 16mph sounds just perfect.  I'll keep an eye on here to see what's happening over the next couple weeks.

I might be keen for this. I usually average about 16 - 17 but would be happy just to do it in a group and enjoy the day.

I need to be having a go this weekend.  Drive from Suffolk on Saturday won't see me there until late morning.  16.5-17 mph average.  Will borrow mate's Garmin.  Any company welcome / appreciated.

Good quesntion AJ.  I'd say kick-off at 11/11:15AM would be a safe bet.  For recce and training purposes, the plan is to churn out full 112m.

I would be up for the 10th july as well

SE - if you want some company in the pub getting the beers in i will ride round with you at a little quicker

It looks unlikely I'll have Garmin fully loaded with route at my disposal this weekend and being largely unfamiliar with any of Nottingham (outside of confines of a pub's walls), I'm not inclined to travel the best part of 200 miles tomorrow to meander aimlessly around the area.

If the invitation is an open one, there's an equally competent / incompetent (delete as appropriate) group of cyclists (16.5-17.5 mph avg), with an idea of where to go, heading off at a sensible hour next weekend, I'd like to get involved?

id be up for the 10th too, it might help me stop getting to "fat chuffer" status before the big day

Let's hope the ineptitude usually displayed by the Met Office applies to this forecast too... http://uk.weather.com/weather/10day-Nottingham-UKXX0104.  Otherwise, bring your Macs!

Moving Along - What time was you thinking of starting out?

Is it worth starting a list of runners and riders for this?

I'm not certain how far a drive it is for me (I'm guessing around 1.5/2 hours)! Happy to go with the flow and leave accordingly... anyone got any thoughts?

03/06/2012 at 11:14

Earlier the better for me, but happy to meet up at anytime

03/06/2012 at 23:15

I might be up for this, coming from SW london so a bit of a drive but provided its not a ridiculously early start I'd like to do it; better check with Mrs in the morning though! Will check back to see if a time's been agreed.
