  • We're saving the widowmaker for the final flourish on the 17th aren't we?

  • That wouldn’t be right, the finish has to be the five hills. Although with that said, the widowmaker is certainly harder than the five hills, so...

  • The five hills backwards would leave the widowmaker as the final (big) climb.

  • .. either way, I believe it should be the Thursday after the clocks go back - which leaves us staring down the barrel of a Halloween Special on the 31st! We should probably do something like Roydon next week, then Potters Bar on the 17th, then something horrible in Surrey..

  • While I don't think I really have the authority to organise an end of season knees-up, not having been on any of the rides yet, I'll just drop this here anyway...­nt14928853

  • Leaving aside the matter of the end-of-season dinner for now, we conducted talk on how the rest of the rides should pan out on the train back from Roydon last Thursday.

    This emerged:

    • this week is an on-week - South (open to ideas)
    • the next ride will then be on the 24th of October - North (Potters Bar)
    • the clocks go back on the 27th of October so the season closer will coincide with the Halloween Special on the 31st of October (playing the 5 hills on reverse to see if we start hearing satanic incantations)
  • What about Box Hill for this week ?

  • I’m out of London this week and the 24th unfortunately..

  • I don't think I've done box hill TNRC so sounds good.

  • Y'know what's better than riding around the lanes of Essex in the cold and rain whilst feeling ill?

    Most things...

    And a trip to Box Hill to witness the japes and capers of a pack of stoned Surrey teenagers in heat!


    @cagimaha your bags are ready :)

  • Awesome! You out on hills tonight?

  • Nope. Are you? I could be persuaded to pop to the pub for a pint...

  • I am indeed, will get you an easy peeler to cover courier costs.

    @ecobeard says are you bringing him a tool roll too?

  • Wicked. Yeah - I might have his too! Haven't actually finished them yet. Y'know... supplier issues... Should be able to get em done before coming up to the pub though.

    Anyway... There aren't meant to be any derailleurs in this thread.
    Catch yah later! Might text or sumething.

  • Hoping to be in for Thursday, its been far too long!
