Some of the guys at work are on other forums and often meet up for various reasons and seem to have a great time, I often hear them talking about it and just wondered if thats the case here, wether there are regional meets (thats the term?) for a get together and cycle run.

    Well there is this annual event

    Obviously not local for everyone but it is fairly central.

  • That prompts me... Maybe in spring I will arrange something. Probably around Warwickshire/Oxfordshire... Kind of cycling route No. 5 to Stratford upon Avon and back via Edge hill

    We used to do reasonably regular social rides, the odd sportive and european trips like the Alps, Pyrenees, Wales :lol:

    Rule #5 // Harden The Feck Up.
    Rule #9 // If you are out riding in bad weather, it means you are a badass. Period.
    Rule #12 // The correct number of bikes to own is n+1.
    Rule #42 // A bike race shall never be preceded with a swim and/or followed by a run.

    cycle clubs do that kind of stuff, I think..
  • I am organising something for the 12 of May... A 100 km ring around Warwickshire. At the moment it is 6 of us on 1980s bikes, but if anyone wants to join in, could be a fun day out on an outstanding course... One of the best rides I know in England.

    100km around Warwickshire, nice.

    Damn the date though (I'll be at Donington Park) :-(

    I would definitely be up for that.
    I live in warwickshire and could arrange for food after the run if you like ?

    I have never done such a high distance and dont have a 1980'2 bike but it could be something I could work towards.
    Are you local ? I know your location says London SW, just wondered why your doing a warwickshire run.

    Not local, no... But I have done that ring along the route no. 5 a few times... Very picturesque on a summer day
