Grrr...

I asked mum about 2 weeks ago if she could take 2 of my mates to our local bike place, this friday. And then I'll ride with dad, and have the 3 bikes in the back. Now Mum is kicking up a fuss because it's "just us" doing all the work, this time round. Now she's saying I never even asked her. Arrghh. Maybe I should just bike there.

/Rant.

    How far is your local bike place?

    I reguarly commute 15 miles each way to some places and find it no hardship whatsoever.

    It's 6 miles each way, but we've never been before. I guess we could try and find our way.

    where are you going..woburn?

    Aim for the hill you can see from Bow Brickhill train station (past Walnut Tree and Walton Park) - the hill goes up into the woods that are part of woburn trails.

    Yeah, going to Woburn. Coming from Kingston though, so It seems straight forward, just follow Newport road down.

    yep and then either go up church road (in Woburn Sands - right up the hill off the funny double roundabout) to the start of the XC trails or straight on at double roundabout out of Woburn Sands until you see a layby / grass verge on the right with a track leading up to the jumps / mini DH area

    see this Google Map.

    There's no useful, good, or well-being part about it!

    Just had more arguments. Grargh. Can't reason with women, I swear. :evil:

    Yeah. I'd imagine they will do when i'm older. And they usually are. But in this case. They're being nothing but unreasonable. Well, she is at least.

    This route looks okay yesh?

    From Tesco Kingston car park, to the Woburn Trails. Should be pretty easy. Just follow the road by the looks of things.
