27-28 pretty please.
Looks like a great trip.
I'm so glad I missed this.
... said no one ever.
Out of interest, how doable on a SSCX bike would this have been?
I don't want to put my name down for a future trip then be an anchor on the group...
@moocher smashed on a SSMTB this weekend
thanks for a fun trip, won't write a full report now but highlights included:
Last point: So you did take your own axe?
dishes. I missed out on the herb field! I assume it was just hemp? Otherwise I need the co-ordinates.....
29er for the win
I probably did a bit more pushing than the others but 95% was fine (although hard in places - like the path up onto the ridgeway from Goring/Streatley)
you smashed it up there - 1st over the top
I assume it was just hemp?
I assume it was just hemp?
I did too, you could smell it from the road though a fair bit before you could see it, it's my last photo. It occurred to me today though that a field of hemp is the perfect place to hide your cash crop.
13-14th is a no-can-do for me, but 27-28 would be good! Yes to Suffolk :)
I forgot to ask, @carson are you feeling fully recovered?
thread for the next trip on Oct 27th/28th weekend >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
fine thanks, ride back down to reading in the cool quiet dark was nice - had to leave though as pounding headache and nauseous I just didn't want to be around people, let alone the Last days of the Rising Sun in full swing. awkward to retreat to a dark quiet corner when you're out with a group..
i've had it before - usually at tail end of long rides when I'm unfit - maybe some sort of exertion headache - who knows. felt hungover next day but not unwell. good to stretch the legs and meet you all.
Trips for 2019 coming up! Here and here and here :)
At which point did you camp for this? Thinking of doing it on Sunday and Monday of upcoming bank holiday.
right at mile 40.5! great spot
Forgot how good this ride was.
I'm in Reading, thinking of doing an overnighter in this area this BH weekend too.
you're in luck, I just updated the route so it's even better than before!
this one has two gates/stiles only, I think, I took out all the other pesky ones
Nice. I'll take a closer look. Might combine some of that with going out to Henley then up to Watlington.
