Re: Up for a ride?

Sorry to let you down. I'm still suffering from the lurgy and haven't been on the bike since well before Christmas. When I eventually get well again, I'm going to have some work to do to get fit again!

Re: Up for a ride?

Hoarder's route looks do-able for me, if I can shake this man-flu dogging me at present and get some riding in to regain a bit of fitness! I'll have to do some timing calculations nearer the time and see if I can rendezvous with the group somewhere on the southernmost tip of the loop and then ride w...

Re: Up for a ride?

Gosh Will, you have been putting in the overtime on the video artistry haven't you! Some really impressive effects there! I can't promise anything for 15th January but if you decide to come south a bit, Udder Room way say, I might be able to struggle out to meet you en route for a stretch. Seasons G...

I've seen references to a Garmin Remote elsewhere but I'm not familiar with it. Is it an accessory for something in their Fitness range?

Re: Sore eyes since going bent

........... ordered a pair of the Sky diver/bike rider wrap around goggles. http://www.specs4sports.co.uk/sorz-stylish-wrap-around-shatterproof-goggles--smoke-lens-707-p.asp ............. That looks like a good choice - probably a bit more robust than the Kroops and maybe a better seal under the ey...

It's never a good idea to speed past a good pub!

Just to illustrate that we aren't the only weirdos favouring odd bicycles - while I was there a chap turned up on a Dursley-Pedersen upright!

Re: Sore eyes since going bent

@Indeboat - yes I have exactly the same problem. My eyes get easily chilled and start to water and the cold air gives me a headache. My best answer so far has been racing jockey goggles - see Kroops here If you browse the Specs4Sports** webshop page, you'll see Kroops also do a similar thing for mou...

Re: Up for a ride?

Great to finally meet up with you all. The first time for me, to be able to ride with other ‘bents! Great video Will - I really must learn to smile more when I’m on camera! Also, must get fitter - the 44km home was ‘steady’ to say the least, and interrupted by a stop for refuelling with a pint of Bl...

Re: Up for a ride?

.............Will you be coming up from Clare via Poslingford and Stansfield ? No, I'll probably risk the B1063. The Poslingford and Assington Green Alps will be a bit much at that time of the morning! .........BTW, if you decide to wait at the Wickhambrook Shop and a tall, blond-haired, straggly-b...

Re: Up for a ride?

Doh! Yet another senior moment - I'd got it into my head that Mildenhall was this weekend! It's a good job I posted here! Nevertheless, I fancy a ride tomorrow and shall attempt to join you. I shall be riding north through Clare and shall aim to join your planned route at Wickhambrook where I'll fol...

Re: Up for a ride?

Will - I'm hoping to make it to Mildenhall tomorrow (Sunday 16th) and join you on your ride. I think you're planning on a 9.30 a.m. start but can you tell me where the meeting/start point will be?
