Default Anyone fancy blowing away the cobwebs 30/1

I've got a trainee to take out on Sunday and I've not been out on the bike for weeks. Once I've got some air in the tyres, oiled the previously oily bits evicted the mice doubtless nesting in my airbox and remembered where I've left my kit I'll be going for a sedate pootle around the Fleet area on Saturday just to try and remember how to ride a bike.

Anyone interested in joining me?
No agenda - yet
No route - start/end Fleet, the rest flexible
No heroics
Just a gentle re-introduction to biking in 2010 now the salt is mostly gone.

If there's any real interest I'll set a time and meet venue.

Twas damn cold but good to get out. Just be careful on any shiny bits!

Big recommendation for Aldi thermals. Nice and toasty warm

Ah, would have been nice - you don't give much notice. An idea might be to post in the GM mega thread - then it comes up on my User CP. I don't always remember to check for new posts in the GM (since it's usually a fruitless search )

I'd be up for a spin out sometime soon .... again, need more notice, and it would need to be fairly sedate ...... I won't be taking the top box off !!

Bah, If you give more notice it just ends up with more people asking for details, expressing more opinions over route/destination, then not turning up.

I'll pop a pointer in the mega thread next time so you get notified.

Keep an eye out for me if you're out and about tomorrow. I'll be on a silver naked thou generally tutting and looking disappointed behind a vintage Ninja somewhere between Guildford, Alton, Reading and Basingstoke.

If I get a pass out over coming weeks it's usually early start (bit later if freezing) start/end in Fleet, route made up according to weather, preferences of attendees at the off and whether we're off for a blat (Sorry Stu, a progressive, sparkling jaunt) or something more technical.

I'll post a few in here and see if I get any takers. However previous experience would suggest a fairly low turn-out. So if you fancy more ride-outs, best bet is organise your own. Don't worry about pace/route as that always sorts itself out on the day. A more formal ride-out does take a lot of organising and can be a bit daunting but a "meet you at <place> for a departure at <time> for duration of <period>" is a piece of cake. If people turn up then fine. If not then just leave when you said you'd leave and enjoy the ride. Any more than a few days notice usually just adds noise to the organisation but that's up to you.

I look forward to potentially covering a few miles with some of you during 2010.
