Cheers Andy, though am sorry to say that the Dura Ace callipers have gone to London via ebay! I think I might take you up on your offer though if you haven’t already binned it? Not bothered about the puke, pee and crap, am covered already and too tired to really care!GarethParticipant23 March 2013 at 21:41Post count: 32GarethParticipant11 November 2012 at 20:01Post count: 32GarethParticipant11 November 2012 at 19:14Post count: 32
I hope it’s not a broken arm Carol! Felt bad leaving you guys, but as Kris mentioned light was fading and we were getting nervous, got back with about 10 mins of light left. Hope you’re all ok and got back safely too.
Get well soon and let us know how you got on at the hospital.GarethParticipant10 September 2012 at 14:48Post count: 32
Nice blog John, sounds like you guys had fun! Just a correction though as I think it was Tim who turned back before Chester and it was Lee and Orbea Rob that I rode back with. Certainly wouldn’t forget Lee after the punishment he was dishing out with Rob. We hammered it back, Team-Time-Trial style, hitting close to 40mph at points on what were nearly flat roads. I tried to tell them to leave me be, but they both insisted I rode with them. So I clung on for what turned out to be an 84 mile ride with no cafe stop! Only towards the end of the ride did Lee turn to me and say that he used to be on the GB squad, trained with a certain Mr Hoy and Mr Wiggins and narrowly missed out on competing at the Olympics. I suddenly didn’t feel quite so bad, and felt a whole lot better once I got in a devoured a whole pizza to myself!
Cheers guys, was possibly the toughest ride I’ve done in ages – but I needed it!GarethParticipant16 July 2012 at 20:41Post count: 32GarethParticipant6 July 2012 at 20:35Post count: 32
Cheeky sod, my mountain bike has been muddy once… I made sure there was photographic evidence (check out the Mary Townley Loop blog). Having said that though I wont be out tomorrow as just got back from a week in Northern France catching two stages of the Tour. Took eight hours to get back from Dover this afternoon in our lovely crowded wet island so I’m having a day off tomorrow! Enjoy yourselves.GarethParticipant26 May 2012 at 09:03Post count: 32
Great blog Kev, you really captured the night! Cheers Andy for taking on the leader role (even if you were over-ruled by Mrs Underhill on numerous occassions regarding route choices!) Also well done to Titch and Les for their massive enthusiasm, hopefully a few initiation-tumbles haven’t put you off?! Right gotta go clean my bike, was hard for me to leave it dirty in the garage for a whole night but I wasn’t getting the hosepipe out at midnight…GarethParticipant22 May 2012 at 20:41Post count: 32GarethParticipant20 May 2012 at 20:20Post count: 32GarethParticipant16 May 2012 at 20:35Post count: 32GarethParticipant8 May 2012 at 20:26Post count: 32
