A thread to share your SDW related ride plans so others can join in if available.
Not restricted to Sundays.
Any lfgss xc group rides going on I could join or alternately
Anyone interested in setting up something?
I often get offroad Sundays but my wife is pregnant so my days off aren't quite as to myself as they used to be. Me and a mate have been trying to get a Monday evening at Stanmer but it keeps fucking raining. We're racing at Pippingford next weekend but after that if we get out I'll give you a shout 👍
Got a baby coming so my participation may be erratic but I'm up for some rides.
I don't have a XC bike but do have an Arkose!
@Tomo187 I'll hopefully have a ss cx bike up together soonish.
Best of luck with the new borns @Retro_bastard @Tomo187
Cheers I'm just squeezing in one more bike build before the baby is born then I'll be forced to cut back on my filthy habit 😢
I think we'll wait to see the full impact of this one first before making those kind of decisions but thanks for the offer 😉
I have an ad-hoc whatsapp group with a few friends usually doing Stanmer Park, South Downs Way and the odd road trip. I'm isolating at the moment but definitely going out next weekend - you're welcome to join in the fun.
I also have all the children I need/want if that makes any difference...
@Squash sounds good. Pmd
I love riding XC along the SDW when I get the chance, but can't commit to a regular(ish) ride I'm afraid. (Already committed to a regular off-road on Sundays with Mrs. sea-level, one of the ways we stay in-sync.)
Could also try a one off forum ride this summer. It would be nice to get all the forum locals together.
Now that is a good idea! I’m in.
Yeah me too if its on a Sunday as i work Saturdays
Ok nice. I'll have a look at some dates this weekend. Also,
I could change the title thread to 'SDW socials' or similar. People can just post up when they are riding so others can join in.
Good idea South Downs Sundays?
Count me in too.
If anyone else is up for it, I'm heading up to Stanmer Park this Sunday. Aiming to get there for 8/8:30ish to play about on Clara's, Buzz Lightyear, Zorro's, etc.
That sounds good.
I am always busy at the moment with a very-nearly-two year old and a partner that loves to make plans well in advance. But I'll keep an eye on this if anyone fancies having an unfit shit mtber around.
Got myself a XC bike! Now just need to find some time to ride it (baby life).
Nice what did you get? Our baby girl is due at Christmas so i think 4 hour rides on the downs may soon be something i used to do. I optimistically just bought some new carbon wheels thinking I'll still be able to use them 🤞
What a Christmas present!
It will all depend on whether you want to disappear for a morning/afternoon or if you're partner will be very relaxed about parental sharing :)
Lets just say my partner is not ok with me buggering off and having fun whilst she is left on baby duty. Which is totally understandable.
I bought a second hand Orange Clockwork which was very nicely spec'd. Hope, XT, Rockshox, etc.
Nice bike 😁 hopefully see you on the downs sooner rather than later
