I am not doing Lanza, but i wondered if anyone would be up for a pre-Lanza training ride based in or around the Chilterns?

I know some poss dates in April are already taken with Brighton Mara and White Horse Challenge but does anyone want to get together in March or other dates in April.

Date, distance and route to be decided by consensus

If you're interested, please put your names down on the dates you can do

Possibly. Anything with Barlos on is always a right crack.

I was going through my shifts last night and earmarking a few long ride dates, some of those even fall on a weekend
I am searching a route up over and around Dunstable downs which are slightly better in hill terms than the sheer drops of the chiltern 100!

it looks really sad for the social life of barley and rafi that they have nothing on at a weekend for weekend after weekend 

On of those weekends is easter

Good work on starting the thread schmunks.

Meldy, would be good if you could sort a route, 70/80 miles maybe?

Guess we'll go with the most popular date, only caveat is i may have to work a weekend at short notice.

Roll on Lanza, training starts tomorrow

I can look at routes, the only problem I see is that there will be most definitely a spread of talent shall we say!

I did look at a figure of 8 loop before that took in Ivinghoe Beacon and Bison Hill so we could do something like that at our own pace with refreshments at Ashridge afterwards?

Usual caveats .. I may change my mind or swap a session but should be free for those dates and some others during the week, have added the Whitehorse Challenge also as I know quite a few of us are doing that one

Now the last time I looked I thought both Bison and Ivinghoe were on the Chiltern 100? 

I'll check the diary and add myself to the list.

im game too
I'll ride over then get the train back into town.

I will probably be able to make saturdays better than sundays though.

and you are not wrong Ferret Sir, I just didnt think the whole C100 course was Lanza specific, we could find some more rolling hills over t'other way

I am not overly familiar with routes over there but we have Toms Hill, Bison HIll and Beacon Hill all within spitting distance so cant be that bad !

28/01/2013 at 18:17
Not doing Lanza but I'm interested in this too, think I can manage most those dates at the moment but things may change.

Up for this, March is out for me though.
