Re: Lejog for wimps please- or am I on my own? ( merged )

OK, Nick if you can get to Bristol I can give you a lift but you'll have to remove your rack and we'll have to take the wheels off both bikes to get them in my car.
David: is the plan to stay on Friday night, ride Saturday and then all drive home on the Saturday???

Re: Lejog for wimps please- or am I on my own? ( merged )

I can make my own way but if the transport is passing Bristol a lift would be nice. Whatever's easiest David. I'd have offered to bring Nick but my wee car won't take 2 peeps and 2 bikes, so even if we could squeeze us in Chelle would need to hang onto the roof bars (and I don't have any)......

White wheels are unacceptable and that's already £30 more than I paid for my last bike...... :lol:

Re: Lejog for wimps please- or am I on my own? ( merged )

I agree, the Wimps can not fade away. As I say I’m happy to go for small rides or the a spin with the whole massive. If anyone is anywhere in South West I’m happy to meet up and ride. If anyone is ever near Bristol I have some really nice rides, some of them are even flat (ish).,,

Re: Lejog for wimps please- or am I on my own? ( merged )

David, I'll go with the flow but if the majority want Spring (and want to ride) I'm also happy with that. I'm happy to plot a West Country route, I have planned one in the past, people still moan about it years later. We have hills, Cheddar Gorge is a lovely scenic climb, the Mendips / Quantocks may...

Re: Lejog for wimps please- or am I on my own? ( merged )

That’s brilliant Nick, really cheered me up after a 4 mile push. So the rear wheel/ tyre I rode LEJOG (without a flat) on I’ve transferred to another bike (the one where the rear rim exploded on it’s first ride), second ride on the set up and came out of where I was working today and the rear tyre w...

Wow. Brilliant guess Ken. We’ll go with that...this was in connection with your ants comment and not your hospital appointment post. I've no idea why my posts seem to appear ages after I think I've posted them.....

I'd be up for that. I might need a new rim after today's ride (all 0.1 mile of it)....
