Spotted another pirate today on the road from cobham to the swan at Ockham. Isn't the surface of that road absolutely b....y awful

Wasn't me.  Even I draw the line at riding to pubs at 8 in the morning.  It was probably meface.

 

I was out on Sunday but in the morning. Probably passed the Black Swan about 09:30 latest - wasn't open. Neither was the Haut Boy. But came from Effingham rather than Cobham. Over to Guildford, Cranleigh, Ockley, Dorking, Leatherhead and finally tour de Bookham to round up to 50 miles.

So don't think it was me. Gladys? Has he done any training.

CD - there are some wheels in my garage - shout if you want them.

Me..face

Dusty... if you've got some dates I might come over and join you Surrey lot.  I could double up a ride a visit to my dotty old mum.  All I would ask is that  you go easy on me as so far this year I have racked up an enormous total of






















 20 miles.

Only if you are feckin hard as nails. I'm still still in jackets, gloves and pirate buff on the bike. I did take the running jacket off tonight mid-run. Last year was too wet, this year is too cold. I'm likeing the look of this sewing thing on the telly - might give that a go instead.

A fair point. Pirate monaco with many thermal layers underneath . You could sew yourself extra layers for next year!

Me..face, when you say, over to Guildford etc, can you be a bit more precise as that sounds like a nice route from that description. I need to build up my mileage now and just the word Cranleigh seems like a million miles from home, when in reality I know its not, plus no idea how to get there on a bike, can only do it by car using busy main roads.

I spotted a Pirate on Box Hill today in the cafe. At least I assume he was a pirate from his two PSOF waterbottles.

Riding a Felt Tri Bike and wearing a black SIS top. I did call out but I dont think he heard me.

Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

Gladys, Just found this thread, hence the late response. Guilty as charged. Didn't mean to ignore you, I was probably still hung over given it was NY day

Not sure if you're doing the full Brighton Marathon this w/e? If not, see you at Outlaw HIM

Hi Monic. Not doing Brighton, but might pop down to cheer on a good few Pirates. You running?

 

I'm not doing Outlaw HIM or full, am doing Vachery HIM and Challenge Henley.

Normally I go out via Fetcham/Cobham/turn right off  route to Effingham to Black Swan. Past Haute Boy and then towards Send. Come out on A246 at bottom of Staples Lane. Then right along A246 to Guildford on dual carrirage way. All the way into Guildford. Head South towards Shalford and then either hang a left through Chilworth and pick A25 to Dorking (short route) or continue on to Cranleigh. Onto Ewhurst, Forest Green, then A29/A24 to Dorking.

Some of it is on fast dual carriageways (A246 and A24). There are lots of good lanes around Forest Green/Ewhurst if you aren't sticking to a schedule.

Thanks M..eface. I will give it a go at some point, might start with the short route.

11/04/2013 at 23:07

Yep, running Brighton, so look out for the completely shagged Pirate creeping round. Forgot you were doing Vachery instead - see you there if I don't catch you on Sunday.

Mr Monic .... are you staying for drinkies ater Brighton??

12/04/2013 at 08:07
Can do. I didn't know what was being planned. I usually spend a bit of time cheering on those still coming in, so just in case we don't catch up on the course is there a specific pub in mind?

Lots of pirates? That's exciting - will be nice to put a few more faces to names.

I'm going to be making my pirate debut in Brighton - I'm 5ft, a lady, and will have a blonde ponytail and red number. Say hello if you see me!
