Won’t be doing that again, unless they promise to have sorted the start and finish. It was a joke this year!!Andy WoodParticipant10 August 2011 at 18:49Post count: 1066
Rrrr it wasn’t that bad Julesy, disappointing sure but it was a good day on the bike all the same! I’m sure I’ll be seeing you there at 7am B&Q car park again!Carol RParticipant10 August 2011 at 20:03Post count: 363

Crying Out Load, get a life, why enter this two pot over priced event that use the same roads that you ride neally every week, use your money to ride something worth while and on different roads for a change. I was thinking of arranging a sportive on a five mile cheshire circuit around the ice cream farm, charging Â£150 entry and would think I would get hundreds of enteries, (mostly from Weaver Valley Members) smacks of ” just like sheep” to me.

Shall I put your name down Les? 😆
Whilst you are here, how is the preparation going for this Christmas’ quiz? Really enjoyed your last one!PaulLParticipant16 August 2011 at 13:42Post count: 40
I’ll expect you all to ride the Ron Sant Ride on Easter Sunday instead. For hardly any money I can make you wait in a car park for hours, throw hot tea at you and spit at the mention of a timing chip!Andy WoodParticipant17 August 2011 at 11:15Post count: 1066
Your Ron Sant ride was ace, that was a really, really good day out on the bike. Hope it returns in 2012!Andy WoodParticipant27 October 2011 at 17:51Post count: 1066

I’m with Les on this one (mainly because I can also be also a grumpy old git at times)! I recon it’s called the Cheshire Cat to reflect the expession on the face of the organizer when he counts the entry fees. Having said that if it gets bums on bikes it can only be a good thing for the future of cycling, so long as we don’t pi55 off too many motorists and cause them to be even more hateful of cyclists than they already are!
P.S. Great picture Les, really shows off your six pack. 🙂Andy WoodParticipant1 November 2011 at 08:14Post count: 1066
Don’t forget entries open at 12 today. I know Les will be sat waiting online!Les CharnleyParticipant1 November 2011 at 22:08Post count: 69
Yes I sure will be, I have my Vo-Do doll already to stick the pins in, why don’t you have a go at a MANS event, like the Etape La Dales in May, don’t take my word for it ask Richard Monroe he will vouch for it.

I can certainly vouch for the Etape du Dales – one of the hardest sportives in the UK. Probably not the one to start with though as there is no short route option, other than a bale out and short cut back to HQ
The Dragon Ride is probably a better one to start with as there are several options and it is not as hard as the ETD. It also goes through some spectacular countryside
