An accurate report Valleyman. Just a small pointer – The purpose of the ‘no lycra’ rule is to present a ‘we just get on with it’ attitude and an attempt to distance ourselves (as mountain bikers) from the geeky ‘all the gear’ reputation that road bikers have. I was therefore disappointed to see some useful ‘stats’ at the end of that report Valleyman. Nevermind, a few more black runs and we’ll have scared the road biker out of you.
I hope for the sake of the club Sweats didn’t get any photos of ‘the carpark incident’. A photo of ‘what happened’ would ruin us for good. It will be spoken of in the same way as ‘the fishing trip’ on Gavin and Stacy.
I spoke to butcherboy yesterday evening,I mentioned we’d be going again soon and asked if he would join us… his response was astounding as he didn’t say no immediately. A bit more peer pressure and he’ll be with us next time.
(Valleyman, can you private message me your number? I’d like to retrieve my mountain bike before you put some slicks and drop handlebars on it).
Just a quick report to say we had a great ride today.
Im going to let SweatyValleysDurbs write their report and contradict where necessary thereafter.
Good news Ed, you can cross brakes off your kit. I’ve even found some off road tyres for you! Slightly ‘raggy’.
Bring your beard though, mine hasn’t arrived in time.
Paco Robanne is very popular and doesn’t prove anything.
Well hello there, Slinky here.
Just a little update to the scheduling for Saturday. We’re going to meet a little earlier now, so more people can join in the party. 11 AM is the new Bloomfield time. I repeat 11 AM. If we all rock up we can work out the most efficient way of getting ourselves up there as a group.
We can make a quick assessment of the abilities and make a call on which track we take on.
Ed’s I’ve got a bike for you. I’m hoping it will have rear brakes by the weekend!
Slinkster Mc Slink
Ed, yeah, no worries. Its a Marin Hard-tail, but its seen some serious brechfa action in the past, she’ll serve you well. If you want to clip in, you’ll need to bring the pedals.
ButcherBoy you want to make some cash this year? Free signed photo of the Slinkster with every pork roll.
It takes brains to make millions, it takes The Slinkster to make billions.
Afternoon I reckon. Shall we say midday at Bloomfield and work out cars from there?
Butcherboy?! Where are you? I’ve got a bike you can borrow.
Ed, if that’s a serious question about hire – afraid not. There are no facilities there apart from a toilet and even that’s not brilliant, it’s a hedge. Did I mention the pub though?!
Ironmen don’t get tired.
PS – ButcherBoy, when am I getting my transfer fee? I’ve suffered a lot of abuse since changing codes from mountain biking.
Which reminds me… i’ll make a new post!
Its the sheep disease isn’t it?
When David Beckham moved to LA Galaxy, shirt sales increased by 1900%. Kenny has made millions because of my good name.
I’ve just taken possession of the ‘Brass Neck’ award. I am obviously touched but this, but can someone explain to me what it means?
Good effort for those who ventured out, esp Celia – 7:30am! Enjoyed the write-up Eds.
I didn’t realised you’d made a speech butcherboy, I hope Martin didn’t mind you standing on the chair.
Martin mentioned an award was handed to him in my absence, when I asked about its potential second hand value he said it was negligible so that was a disappointment.
I trust you all had a good time?
Premier Inn’s are for peasants. I’ll be lording it from the metaphorical Ivory tower of the St.Davids hotel. I’ll see you at the start line.
Quite fancy a slice of that.
Q: Are we talking cafe’s and bacon butties on the Friday, or all out ‘get there’?

I hope they don’t have those minging orange shirts this year, the Slinkster looks his (very) best in black and red..
Thought I’d pop into say hi.
Sounds like the Dynamos are getting serious with all the wattage testing. I’m getting the impression you’re all trying to hit next season with a bit of momentum – giving you the chance, and its only a chance, that you could keep up with the Slinkster x
