Brian, you are very welcome to join.

I would suggest when you are done running around, you make your way alongside the canal (just up from Willen) and then ride south and meet us at the OK garage in Peartree Bridge.

Map here

Alternatively, you could wait around for us at the Cricket Pavillion Car Park in Campbell Park Very Happy

Try starting out on a 1 inched steerer fully ridged with cantilver brakes and tyres so badly designed they never seemed to shed any mud. Very badly fitting helmets, flat pedals with toe straps, its a wonder anyone survived those when used off road. Top it off with visit from the cycling fashion police adding dayglo colours and purple anodising everywhere.

Now take all that and throw it down a big hill as fast as you dare only stopping to drink from a muddly puddle and lick gravel rash out your knees.

E them where the days all rite.


Showing your age there Gav Razz
