A few of the more hardy amongst us have asked if we can carry on with the Wednesday rides so ok we will give it a go.As it dark quite early now it seems no reason to try and start at 18.00hrs and its a bit early for some so we revert to 18.30hrs (that's 6.30 in the evening)
The route wont be laid in stone cause weather,how many there are how we feel etc. will all effect the ride but I think most of us have an idea as to some general routes.I have one up my sleeve in fact I have a number so routes wont be a problem stick to the 25/28 mile distance.
It goes without saying that lights will be needed.How many potholes you want to avoid will hinge on how a good a light you want to fit!!!.
If you can POSSIBLY give me an idea if you are going to come it would help but not important.

If any one is thinking of BIG LIGHTS here are two links one:-the Magichine seems like a good buy.But £7.00 postage!!!

The other from the chap who printed the shirts they are more expensive but I am going to ring him tomorrow and see if I can hammer out a better price as there won't be postage etc and we are a local bike club.
Both seem to be very similar just price .

If as soon as I know what price I can get the ones from Alistar for I will post then if any one is interested in getting some for wed I can get him to have them charged and ready to go on wed night.
Actually I have just read an e mail from spokeshirts and up until friday last week he was doing them for £88 so I will twist his arm Let me know.asap.

£7.00 ..... well it's about 10x8x3 with metal and batteries
so it'll weight summat but as you say 7 quid is a little steep !

Light update.
I have spoken to Al at spokeshirts and if we order more than one light ie two or more he will do them for £85.00
If anyone is interested please let me know and I can order and get them charged up ready for Wednesday.

One thing I will say is I know that magicshine are Very good and about the same price as these if you include postage, but I do like the mounting bracket on the spokeshirt lights. The magic ones just use a rubber band

I wont due to ITB issues :-(.

lights .... the magicshine one can be modded to use a Hope
handlebar mount, not that I've had aproblem with the rubber
band mount, which is a cam quick release so bike to bike is
a real doddle :-)

In fact ... this is my magicshine / hope concoction :-)

I think this is the new version by magicshine which is the same as the spokeshirt one.

Only difference is the spokeshirt one has a modified reflector for different beam pattern.


ps - 6.30pm

phil ... that's the ones :-)

I got my magicshine from them last year - the only problems are
non-uk chargers, no support and HUGE delivery delays :-)
but you could save because of the exchange rates !

I'm hoping to make it, along with Jo but it depends on what time we finish work...

I'll post back on here if we can definitely make it.

Weather looks to be ok...

No problem. It ended up being just me and Jo.

We did a fairly short route - 18 miles, in the dark it's just no so easy to go quickly!

Still the weather was ok, and it was nice to be out and about all the same.

Hope everyone has a good evening!

I'm hoping to make the club ride next Sunday (10th) for those of you that we won't see at the Belter this weekend.
