New Forest ladies ride

OK ladies, as I may not be able to make it to a Wales ride for a few months, who fancies a New Forest ride out?

We'll probably camp in our VW bus :)

Sarah75, I know you're *cough* up for it.

I might even be an old married woman by then!

    I think I'll have to wait a bit before I partake - get myself up to scratch a bit!

    But I like the concept!

    No no no! No waiting!!!

    None of us are speed demons or downhill divas and there are still plenty of hills I have to walk :lol:

    The point of these days is to go out and have a lovely ride with people of a similar skill set (read: slow as molasses) :lol:

    There is no one slower or more unfit than me, anyway :lol:

    I've had worse things said about me :shock: :lol::lol:

    Sounds great - although may have to rope in my other half to guide as he knows where all the sneaky singletrack is (wheras it's all just gorse and ponies to me...!)!

    Holiday in August - I *almost* wish we weren't going away...

    BUT

    I don't really mean that - it's our first abroad holiday in 10 years, so it should be wonderful :D

    I'm so jealous, I'd love to go cycling in the NF again :) Me & blokie did Fordingbridge to Fritham a few years ago and loved it. (there was a nice pub at the end so it figures, lol)..but the saddle on my hire bike was an absolute killer *winces*

    BTW, hello, this is my first post on the whole forum :D

    Hurrah!

    As the new forest is so close, we may be able to manage something sooner rather than later as I wouldn't need any extra holiday. It's only about 2 hours from us, even in our 65 split :lol:

    Oh! Whereabouts in the NF would be close to good riding?

    June is out for me because the project I'm on is due to finish at the end on that month, and we're up in Scotland 5th - 13th July for our anniversary. :( Go ahead without me though *sniff* I'll be OK....
  • Ditch WitchDitch Witch Posts: 837
    I'm actually thinking time is going to be tight before the end of July, to be honest. Shall we look at those weekends?

    May i suggest you ladies arrange 2 or so rides, as all of you will never make it too 1 ride at the same time. people have hectic life styles these days
  • lovewaleslovewales Posts: 411
    Hmmmmmmm think someone(^^^^^) may be wanting this organised so he can spy on the ladies. :mrgreen::mrgreen:

    By the way do we think pink accessories will go with black carbon fibre :?: :?: :?:
    If every action has an equal and opposite reaction does that mean I will be eaten by a fly?

    Righty, I have been avoiding this threads, as much as I would love to come along (and boy would I) I really dont think that my squeaker (my bike :wink: ) is up for the job (nor my legs for that matter).

    Lemme get this year under my belt (and a new bike under my bum) and I will be more then happy to walk round course with y'all

    sorry i know i am of the males species.

    sod the ponies watch out for the cows with horns. We rode there resently and rode alittle faster past these bad boys.

    By the way good chioce of riding in the new forest.
  • Ditch WitchDitch Witch Posts: 837
    No no no, this is no good.


    I promise you, I am not an olympic athlete in disguise. The longest ride I've ever comfortably done is about 2 hours and about 6 miles :lol: I can manage 10 if there are no steep climbs.


    C'mon chicks, this thread is about getting newbie ladies out and about. Nowt to be afeared of :)
