But, but, but.... I don't ride my sweet fixeh to work, the commute is on a retro MTB monstrosity with a basket, I have to lug a heavy work laptop around, the dog ate my front brake, I'm just a lazy shite... I could keep going on and on with the excuses, really!
I'll do my best to make it next Thursday :)
Oh fab well no excuses then! Will hopefully be free for the next
Well, next Thursday was but a suggestion, we'll have to see what the Committee decides.
In the meantime, be sure to read the Ride Protocol and we'll see what transpires.
Lurker here, I would definitely be interested but unfortunately can’t do next Thursday.
Also I’m SS rather than FG but I will try to follow the protocol despite this…
There's definitely been a mix of drivetrains on the last few rides, I wouldn't worry about this too much
This is all very encouraging, what route are you thinking @rhowe? Chingford would be a nice introduction route, tho Potters Bar would be good too.
I was thinking E4, mostly because we did PB last week. There's also the Cheshunt route or even Killing me Softlea.
Yes they're all North. Yes I am selfish
I am out of town this Thursday unfortunately, but this is a good call @rhowe . Hopefully this goes ahead…
If anyone's around Highgate tomorrow evening... https://www.lfgss.com/comments/16620589/
What about Thursday 18th? Cheshunt? It's pretty flat overall, with a couple of the Potters Bar climbs and a stinger towards the end?
Pub at the end is... adequate. Trains to/from Liverpool St.
If people are really struggling there are options to bail at Hertford and Bayford.
fine with me..*
*extra clothes and/or a lock required for that pub
I might be in Glasgow but if I’m not then I’ll find another excuse.
Train strikes forecast for Thursday 18th...
So, no trains to either PB or Chingford on Thursday probably means no newbies ride, but anyone willing to ride out and try some alternative lanes around Potters Bar?
I threw this together last night https://ridewithgps.com/routes/40585545
Probably in for this, but I'll need to confirm tomorrow.. #Ikea
Might not be too wet
Urgh, sorry I was being overly optimistic. I'm not going to be able to make it I'm afraid. Next week?
Sit on my arse for a week? Can do. Unless you fancy a recce on a non-thursday?
Very sorry @rhowe but my childcare/work situation has gone to shit. I'm gonna be out of action for at least the next week.. :(
Sad, but needs must I guess
Anyone feeling up to a season ender next week? Thu 3 Nov? Potters Bar?
Might be up for the end of season awards if they’re the same night
I'm not sure anyone warrants an award this year, except maybe @cagimaha and @rhowe for valiant attempts to keep this thing going, but we'll definitely wheel out a tiny trophy for you if you make it!
I lurking hard on this idea btw @rhowe . Work is almost certainly going to be a PITA on Thursday, but if I can swing it, I will..
There's a good chance it'll be damp if that helps you decide
Blimey you weren't kidding - but based on today, work is inevitably going to rule me out of this half-plan regardess I'm afraid.. :(
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
