    Hi,

    Thanks for the PM Lewis, how you recovering mate? As far as the ride is concerned I might not be able to make this one as we have 2 new Border Collie pups who are dismembering the house faster than I am rebuilding it and I dont think its fair to leave my wife to do all the clearing up. I am hoping that when they are a little older and been through the training classes they will come out with me on rides from time to time.

    Shame you can’t make it Brian I’m sure they will stop eating your house soon! Knee is alot better still not 100% I’m sure I will find out on Sunday if the opperation worked…..or not.

    Cannock chase it is, pete also mentiod this. I have never been up there so should be good.

    Any other riders from the area fancy it?

    Hiya Lewis.

    Thanks for the invite but I’ve got something on this weekend already. Sorry, would have loved to. I’ve not even managed to get out on the bike this year so far! 😥

    I’ve not had much time to check in at the forum very often, how is everyone?

    Rob.

    Hiya Rob,

    Right then looks like it’s us 3 then. Shame rob and brain can’t make it sure we can sort somthing out soon.

    Plan of attack is meet in the car park at 10 and go on a jolly.

    Teatime what car will you be in and what bike do you have? As shouting teatime in the car park at 10 in the morning might look a bit wierd!!

    Hi All,

    Not checked in here for a while! I hope everyone is well and recovering after the festicities, manic time of year and all that! The ride on Sunday was really good, although teatime put me and Lewis to shame with the fitness side of things! 😳 It was a really great ride though as the weather was nice and cannock chase trail centre is really good. We’ll have to organise a ride around there when/if the weather gets better as some parts were quite muddy (not nearly as bad as the pines though!) Didn’t take any pics as I forgot my camera, i think I’m going to have to keep it in my riding pack so it’s always there when I need it. Hope to catch up with everyone soon!

    Pete

    Hi guys,

    Good to hear you had a nice ride down in Cannock and I am sure if teatime was fitter than you guys where does that put me?. Sorry I havnt posted in the site lately but I have been kept very busy with 2 Border Collie pups that are driving me up the wall. I now know what its like to be in NATO and trying to keep the peace. I will be out again at the start of Feb so lets look at sorting something out for sometime then.

    Brian.
