    Calling all Notts / Derby riders (or any one else who wants to join). There is a ride starting from Carsington Water Visitor center, Below are the details for the ride.

    Right then me and monkeyface (pete) have a plan! meet in carsington water visitor centre car park at 09:00 hours, And figure out a route from there pete has OS maps of the area so we can make something up.

    Not much of plan I know, but this is what happens when brian doesn’t organise.

    Hope to see plenty of you there. Let me know if you can make it.

    So far:

    me (lewis)

    monkeyface (pete)

    dan (friend of mine)

    Looks like we are going to get a bit of bad weather. 8)

    Is it still on, no matter what? As you all know, I lurve the mud!

    Yep, will think of you Brian, in your toasty warm overalls, as we ride through a monsoon and destructive gale force winds. 😀 Just listen out for us on the news! 🙂 Will see you next time mate.

    I am indeed on duty next weekend, no doubt up to me elbows in blood, guts & other unmentionables, so no playing out for me! 🙁

    But I am off next Wed & Thur if anyone’s got time on their hands? I intend to be out one, if not both days on the MTB. All welcome.

    Rob.

    Hi Guys,

    Well I hope you have good waterproofs and perhaps a snorkel as well. Another reason I cant get out on the ride this week besides working in the morning is I am going to pick up a brand new Specilized Hardrock 2010 from Oxford, got it £100 cheaper than all the bike shops even online was selling them for.

    Have a good ride.

    Brian.

    I think I’ve just thought of a new exreme sport. Think Kite surfing but replace the surfboard with a mountain bike! We could try it out tomorrow given the rather ominous weather forecast!

    Morning Guys.

    Sorry to be a let down but I’m not going to be able to make it. I’ve got up with good intentions but just feel too ill.

    Have a good ride, the weather doesn’t look too bad!

    Hi all,

    Haha no we’re not still out there Brian!

    We had a nice ride, really brought home the need to do some training for the BHF ride in March! I swear I thought I was going to need a paramedic half way round! the terrain wasn’t nearly as hard as the Pines but for some reason I really struggled.

    Glad you’re impressed with your new ride! I’ve got a few from the ride today but as I’m still using a Linux OS without Java support I’ll have to wait till my new copy of windows arrives.

    I hope you’re feeling better soon Rob, have to get out again before the weather gets really bad.

    Cheers guys, i’m not so bad today, just a bit rough round the edges. 🙂

    Glad you had a good time at Carsington and yes we’ll get some more rides in before the really bad weather comes. I am looking forward to getting out in the snow though.

    Brian, can’t wait to have a nosey at your new bike. Also, you have set me off thinking about a new one, watch this space… 8) So, when Lucy kicks me out it’s kinda your fault Brian.

    Take care all.

    Rob
