September 2016 - Training + Leisure rides
Welcome Topic - introduce yourself

I’m not around this coming weekend, which means I’ve missed at least 3 or 4 Sunday rides! Back on it for both road and trail riding to Epping soon, I might even enter some casual CX events if anyone’s interested.


Last Sunday was good but only me and Edward were out (Lowest turn out ever??) It was a fast a furious ride around Epping.

I should be out this Sunday.


I should be back this Sunday. I’m up for a longer ride


I should be back out on Sunday. Think last weekend was probably a more exceptional case with the low turn out due to the rain and a few of us being on the L’Etape ride.

Current forecast good for Sunday :smile:. Anyone up for doing a ride to Richmond park at some point? Change our direction up a bit.




I am keen to be there this Sunday as I’ve missed the last couple!


I’ll be out this Sunday and looking forward to it! Open to the distance and route but I may have to jump in a taxi for the return leg (if it’s too far) :slight_smile:


On for Sunday …


Sunday funday. I’d be up for a classic smash some gelato afterwards kind of deal…


I canne do sunday - hill climb. Perhaps a gentle ride Saturday afternoon if anyone’s free.


hope to make it tomorrow


I should be along and will probably just do the usual Epping ride this week :thumbsup:.




Have a niggling injury so doubt I’ll be out, enjoy the ride all.


I would love to ride on Sunday and the chances are very low as my knee is giving me plenty of signals to avoid it … let’s see …


Should be down tomorrow :slight_smile: - but only got time to do an Epping loop


On my way in case a few mins late!


Arrived just before 8 for ride, looked on Yonder just after 8 to check no change of plans - obviously just missed Henry’s message. Around 10 past gave up waiting an went out for a short ride on my own. Could definitely do with a better / more formal way of confirming who coming/late etc. It was a beautiful morning up in the forest.


Hey mate,

I’m a little confused! Did you think we normally leave at 8? 8:30 is our normal leave time and we waited till around 8:35 for people running a few mins late.

Sorry to hear you missed out though and definitely agree we need to sort whatsapp or similar.

8:30 for future reference :slight_smile:



Thanks for subtly pointing out my stupidity! Totally had 8 o’clock in my head, don’t know why the total lack of people didn’t make me double check.


Sorry to miss everyone again, having a rare few days off with family on south coast. Looking forward to catching up soon.
