  • CharlieHCharlieH Posts: 410
    Hopefully! Will have to check with the wife first though in case she's planned any fathers day surprises

    Gents, wife wants me to help in a car boot sale Sunday, will use fathers day card to get out of it. Need to get out, work taking over things and have not been on the bike for 2 weeks- toooo long

    Charlie, you free next week 'bout 4ish for a quick blast round yours?

    Simon- got the go ahead so I'm up for it. Just need to arrange time

    Andy - no problem, just let me know when you want to come over

    Hi Charlie / Simon

    If you are doing Gisburn tomorrow can you post up start time, not guaranteed I can make it, I'll let you know.

    Regards

    ED

    Hi Ed. I'll text Simon later but weather looks like it gets better around lunchtime so I was thinking around 12 but I'm flexible time wise so depends what anyone else prefers
  • psymon01psymon01 Posts: 46
    Charlie - my damn boiler has broken again so got someone coming out sometime tomorrow morning (not sure of exact time just yet). However, I should be able to make it over for 13.00 at the latest.

    Hi Ed

    Charlie and I will be getting there for 1.00.

    Any good for yourself?

    Hopefully the rain will clear up!

    Hi guys. My mate Tom wants to do a 15ml ride around Harewood tomorrow morning if anyone fancies it. It's a trail he's found but never done so no idea how hard/easy it is. Planning on setting off early as we want to be back for 1pm for the grand Prix. If anyone wants to join us let me know and I'll post start time/place when I've spoken to him

    Ed- did you manage to get away without being murdered by your wife then for loading your mud covered bike into her car :)
  • WobbleheadWobblehead Posts: 264
    All good, not too much sh1te got off the bike into the car :D
  • WobbleheadWobblehead Posts: 264
    Anyone up for a ride this weekend, Sat / Sun both good, would need to be away for 3.00pm both days?
  • CharlieHCharlieH Posts: 410
    Hi Ed. I'm up for a ride this weekend. Saturday is best for me as it's the British Grand Prix on Sunday. I fancy doing something different, maybe Pately Bridge way but I'm open to suggestions (as long as there's some nice downhill) :)
  • WobbleheadWobblehead Posts: 264
    Pately soungs good.

    Sat is also good, there is a good ride I know, prob about 20 miles though from Gouthwaite resevoir, up to Scar House resevoir.

    censored of a climb up to Middlesmoor though, hits 1:4.

    Good downhill at the other side though!

    As much as I hate hills, I always forget about them once I'm on a decent downhill. What time were you thinking of?
  • WobbleheadWobblehead Posts: 264
    10.00am?

    Only caveat is I have no bike at present!!

    Should be back from LBS though, can't see it as an issue.

    Kind regards

    Ed
  • CharlieHCharlieH Posts: 410
    Right -

    Simon is up for it - no time issues

    I'm ok - no time issues

    Ed has to be away for 3pm

    Matt can't make it until 12 but free afterwards

    Tom is in Leeds night before so not sure what time he will be back

    As Ed is the one that knows the route I guess we'll have to start at 10am, sorry to the others. Unless of course Ed's bike isn't back then it's a free for all, lol

    My brain hurts, I'm off for a lie down :)

    Right then 10am, where abouts Ed?
  • WobbleheadWobblehead Posts: 264
    Bike back, sorry!

    Need to see how it goes tonight though.

    I have got a bit more time if needed, can push departure out to 12.00 if that helps everyone.

    Meet at car park at side of Gouthwaite reservoir, on the left hand side of road between Pateley and Ramsgill
  • CharlieHCharlieH Posts: 410
    I think 12 would be better for Matt and Tom. I'll text them now and see what they say

    Rubbish, you're still younger and fitter than me!!!! Although I did notice a spare tow rope in the garage and considered fixing it onto the back of Ed's bike ;)
  • CharlieHCharlieH Posts: 410
    Just heard from Matt. He may be able to get away a bit earlier from work on sat but he will let me know tomorrow

    Might have a couple more with me, not sure yet, will let you know, never been out with them but don't think they are too quick

    Nice steady ride

    The more the merrier (and hopefully slower) ;)

    Hi,

    Wouldn't mind joining you guys for this ride if there's room for one more?
    But what time are you setting off?

    Cheers

    Grahame
  • CharlieHCharlieH Posts: 410
    Right chaps! Matt can be at carpark for 10:30 if that makes it easier for everyone?

    Let me know if that suits everyone and I'll pass it on

    Grahame - you are more than welcome
