    Saturday 22nd June 2013 - Heapeys in Wells

    With the poor weather forecast for tomorrow we will probably be going to Heapeys in Wells.
    If by some miracle the weather is good we will do the 100 miler to Shaftsbury.

    Strangely I am hoping for bad weather tomorrow as I want to do the Shaftesbury 100 but can't tomorrow as have to get back early. I say early, that means by about 2 at the latest so Heaphy's suits me fine.

    Martin I found the 105 shifters and tested them this morning and they are working fine if you want to have a look at them, also have the matching derailleurs. The forks have a tapered steerer though, so they won't fit your bike. My number is 07411949204 if you want to get hold of me.

    Martin - ride report very brief and to the point. What's all that about then? Got the hump or something?

    How many calls do you think Meirion had so far? Does he know this forum is used by a bunch nutters who think that riding a bike till their legs drop off is a fun way to spend 5 hours on a Saturday. Goodness knows what kind of texts or calls he's been getting. Maybe he was hoping for a call from Dave B - I've heard Sky are short of a rider for the Tour.

    Sleep = Ivan yesterday morning!

    My mummy told me to ignore mean bullies, anyway I have far too much time on my hands to reap revenge Twisted Evil If Froome can't ride he always has me to rely on, not sure he can afford my services though, it will cost literally tens of pounds!

    Sorry for the crap ride report but English was always my least favourite subject.
    There was'nt much to report apart from Ivan trying to offer the women cyclists in Hepheys his advice on which rubber they ought to use (for their replacement inner tubes) :-)

    I think that too many people are using this site for idle chit chat, what do they think a forum is for?

    BBC are predicting a rare dry Saturday. So, unless that changes, it's Lyme and no excuses. Let's see how your chit chat holds up after 120 miles.

    Anyone fancy old colonial Thursday for a pre race burger? I'm pretty sure that froome et al will be doing something similar.

    Don't forget to bring your £s for the sweepstake. I reckon we should give nick joachim unjapants. He still hasn't watched the 2005 tour on sky catch up yet so it won't be hard to convince him that joachim was last year's winner.

    I'm looking forward to the Lyme ride on Saturday so to make sure I can complete it I will not be going to the pub on Thursday just in case someone spikes my burger with some illegal drugs :-)

    Poof.

    If you're not at the pub you can't really claim to have completed the ride.

    What will the grandchildren say when they're sat on your knee?

    "Did you ever ride to Lyme like a real cyclist pops"?

    "Well..."

    Just noticed; this thread is null and void.

    Heaphey's is in Glastonbury, I thought that you looked a bit thinner in the cafe on Saturday, didn't realise it was because you were sat 5 miles away.

    Rolling Eyes I always got those two places mixed up! Not sure how is one is a small town and the other is a city :-)

    I've just created another topic for next Saturdays ride - Saturday 29th June 2013 - somewhere in Bognor Regis.
