Right I have changed the cake stop as the ladies from the WI will not be there next week.They are next open for afternoon teas and cakes on May 1st (1st Sunday of the month )So I have pencilled that date for our next gentle ride.
Anyway back to next week .The start is our normal start location of Tesco @Bradley Stoke (or by Giant's bike shop it's the same place)
Start time will be 11.00 O'clock so you have time for breakfast first.
It comes to as near as I can make it 30 miles with one small hill on the way back.
This is a golden opportunity for those who fancy a nice little club ride with out raising your Heart beat.It's a come one come all. I believe we will have a 14 year old coming along, mind you he's probably fit as a flea and will end up pushing me along!
So for those of you old enough to remember Fred Pontin "Book Early"
Here's the route http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/30896764/ click on the link as you should be able to see where we are going.
I will get Phil to put out an e mail in the week to remind you all.
Neil (Nbh)Is organising a harder ride with the normal start time so watch out for his posting..

Yes I do love to climb but my knee is telling me no again.

Since the Audax ride my knee cap hurts so will have to wait until Sat before I decide. Normally I get knee pain but not on under the knee cap Crying or Very sad

Just had a very nice pork and apple sauce baguette and pot of tea at the proposed cake stop for Sunday.They also do a very nice line in cakes.Table for twelve booked for 1.30 ish there is a play garden there with swings as well.Also it's part of the garden centre so you can get some seeds and growbags at the same time!Plenty of space for bikes but might be worth bringing a lock just in case it's raining and we sit indoors.

anterior knee pains eh ... you been pushing those 55-11 gear combos
again ????? Very Happy

Since my early years "mishap" I've had "fragile" knees ... mine's normally
posterior pains - the saddle can be as little as 10mm too high or
too far back and that'll be me done for several months !

Ever considered a proper fit ? It shouldn't hurt at all really ....

I had front knee pain last night but generally find this is down to cold knees or not warming up. I had a proper fit on my Cannondale, which I was riding last night, and I could swear that my saddle is to low !

In fact everything I have read says that as your fitness improves you can raise the saddle. I will be tweaking tonight or before the weekend, probably no more than 10-15mm.

BE CAREFUL ..... that's how I managed to be off the bike for 6 months
and that turned out to be a little less than 10mm !!!

heel on the pedal at the bottom of the stroke and not too much more :-)

Yes that's correct. We are just posting the start point since there will be a big group of new comers to this ride and not sure of the start point.


Route is in the first post of this topic.

So you coming out Dangermouse? Haven't seen you in what is almost year?!?! Smile
