Looks like Dave and I are off for a long one on Sunday, as always it's and open invitation. There isn't much climbing besides the odd foothill here and there otherwise just lot of open road. Hope to see you there. All the details are listed below.

Meeting on Sunday the 10th of July @0845ish
Isleham recreation center, which has plenty of free parking
32 Mill St, Isleham, Ely CB7 5RY

I would have loved to Will, but I'm doing the Pedal Car Grand Prix at Ringwood... Hopefully next time!
 
Have a good one. Thumbs Up

First let me start by saying thanks to our guest rider Alan for driving in from Luton to join Dave and I. I'm always pleasantly surprised to see a new face and this was no exception.
I should have known I was in for trouble as I left the house with only my rear brake working at 40%. I left it to get to the meeting point on time, which was soon fixed with the assistance of Alan before we set off. The weather wasn't half bad except for bit of wind which is to be expected on the Fen. I didn't make the full 60 miles thanks to the spokes on my rear wheel popping like they were in a bag in the microwave 20 miles in. My own fault, when I built the wheel up I should have put in new ones instead of being cheap and using spokes over 16 years old. According to Dave it was a lucky escape from the headwind He and Alan faced the 30 miles back around to the start. 
Well, this is just the start a nice set of rides before the cold is upon us again. Hope you enjoy the video, and remember it's just of the first 20 miles. Thanks for watching.http://youtu.be/3nBp86HlXYQ

Thanks for the ride Will.  I am glad to hear that you got home ok and that you have sorted out your wheel.

I have also put a video up of the ride ( not as well edited as yours ), https://youtu.be/RMsXwxo6edI

Nice video, it's good to see things from someone else's perspective.

Hello All,
I know it's been a minute but I'm still alive and kicking. Looking for a show of hand for a ride on the 15th of Jan. Who's interested and does anyone have any request regarding location? If there are at least 3 or 4 interest the ride will be a hard go barring ice roads of heavy rain.

Got out last weekend but it was a Usual Suspects. Herespecially what you missed.

Thanks Will!
I'd like to get along to this depending on weather and transport (the old van has now gone to the great scrapyard in the sky...)
