@japes what’re yr planz?


#3406

same same


#3407

Oh no!


#3408

great stuff

i am really fucking looking forward to this so much now

potential to be an absolutely fantastic weekend


#3409

Sweet. We will do something like

Friday: I’ll meet you guys after work, have some food and beers and that round Kelham Island way
Saturday: BIG RIDE followed by food and beers and that round Abbeydale road way
Sunday: Depends what time you’re leaving but potentially a quick spin


#3410

better buy that new cassette hadn’t I


#3411

Oh shit just realised I’m working in brum on Friday but I should be back in Sheffield by 6ish so not too bad


#3412

I’ll bring mine just in case


#3413

I have a feeling we’ll just basically sit in the beer shop the moment we arrive until you rescue us, it’s fine


#3414

It’s really, really good tbh. The Broadfield next door is also a nice pub, and the Tramshed and Picture House are both c. 5mins walk away


#3415

And then stay in there for the weekend


#3416

so the annual Bristol to paris bike ride for charity with work that I have ever been allowed to go on as it clashed with year end has now been moved to early may

I get to go on it, yay!
plus, excuse for new bike :wink:


#3417

Loved the charity rides I’ve done through work. So much fun. Enjoy if you do go.


#3418

if?

I’m there!
how often do you get to go on a fully supported ride?


#3419

Sorry didn’t realise. I’ve done Paris London, 5 peaks by bike and hike (1000 miles in a week plus walking the 5 peaks), 24hrs solo round a circuit, countless sportive type events. All really well organised.


#3420

@plasticniki & mike, @rich-t , @japes and anyone else joining us. how many utter little bastard* climbs would you like to do during the ride, so I can plan a route.

*little bastard = 1km - 1.5km ish at 11-14% avg.


#3421

A few


#3422

twenty six
