XMAS RIDE CHANGE
9:00 Sat, 9 Dec 2017
Duration: 2hr 0
because of the brief, but at exactly the wrong time, snowfall earlier, and subsequent freeze, I personally do not want to ride the roads.
Therefore I intend to meet at 9am on my MTB to go for a local ride, ending back at mine for 11-12 for the food (of which we have plenty!)
Obviously if people still want to go for a road ride you are still welcome round at mine for a Xmas Snack.

This ride is going to be awesome. Rode the cx bike today for the first time in 9 weeks, so fast compared to the 29er :o)

Anything wider than 25c tyres is cheating... ;-)
22:40 Wed, 29 Nov 2017

15:44 Thu, 30 Nov 2017

Anyway, as Doctor Alexander says... CX is cheating.

The Cafe is Oakley Grange in Hathern;
As we are so many they would prefer that we pay in groups rather than individually. So i would suggest checking out the menu and bringing change that would suit what you expect to drink / eat just to make the whole bill paying process easier!!
They have reserved the "Grain Loft" for us and i've said we might be a bit grubby......

Actually, just spoke to the cafe and they have said they will do an offer of £5.50 for any hot drink and a piece of cake...

Is that the same place as last year.
20:05 Mon, 4 Dec 2017
Unfortunately not, that other place closed last week!!!

This cafe sells gorgeous cake, looking forward to it.

Looking like it’ll be pretty cold tomorrow so wrap up warm!
That said it’s dry today and tonight so ice shouldn’t be a problem, and at least the mud will freeze up!!!

Mmmmm looks like that brief snowfall earlier has put the cat amongst the pigeons!!
Not sure what to do tomorrow. What do people think?
19:22 Fri, 8 Dec 2017
I'm out Mark... the roads are too icy for me, as a come back ride!
19:49 Fri, 8 Dec 2017
I've fettled me mountain bike now!
20:00 Fri, 8 Dec 2017
Could go mountain biking locally instead?
Whatever happens, there is loads of food and drink at mine!!!
20:07 Fri, 8 Dec 2017
