Sunday training ride Starts November 25th

Postby Mickoc » Tue Nov 13, 2012 8:22 pm

Well back by popular demand Sunday training rides start Sunday November 25th.

Starts 9:30am. From Fermain.

The ride will be 50/65miles long depending on the weather conditions.

No cafe stop. Home for lunch time.

Only one rule you must have mudguards with flap. Do not even think of turning up without them. You will not be welcome or allowed to ride with the group.

See you all on the 25th.

El Capitano :cheers:

Sixty five miles at an average of 17mph on a day for the Club's hardmen led by the hardest of them all, El Capitino. The combination of mud, rain, cold and wind made it more like Belgium than Cheshire although Mrs Trotter failed to produce the required Duval avec moules et frites at the end. I bet Frans Verbeek never had to make do with beans on toast when he finished his training rides, let alone being sent out to wash the car before he could enjoy his meal. Even saw some riders dressed up as time trialists in the M&DTTA 10.

Just the two of you then Dave?

Weren't we lucky? Weathermen said light rain or showers... more like a persistent deluge before 11 a.m. But, at least, a lot safer than last Sunday!

Next time, you could call and wash Mrs Roberts's car before Mrs Trotter's for even more cross-training!

Not a nice day. As they say races are won and lost on winter training! :lol:

And to top it off a case of severe bonk whilst climbing the col du Pexhill.

Yes it was 34/23 to the junction of dark lane whereupon Brian and I wobbled our way home on empty.

Happy Days.

El Capitano :salut:
