Hi Al, did 19:58 on your week one ride.

As an aside to anyone having a crack - the Walnut, albeit short, is quite dodgy. Folks tend to come out of the
Gully and hit warp factor 5 down the Walnut to finish. AND...I also ran into a trials motorcyclist which caused me to stop completely. Anyway, just a heads up for ya'll.

Cheers,

A.D.

I *did* front up about 2 years ago for the climb up Fringed - everybody else was coming back down as I hit halfway :hmmm:
My daughter has bagpiping on Monday nights so she is generally out and my wife has far too much sense to get sucked into silly competitions (especially with Paul M, who is her boss)

That said, I'll make you a deal: I'll come out one night for the climb (after I steal my mtb back from my daughter and take her pedals off it) if you get 3 mates with road bikes together and come out for the Corporate Pursuit on Thursday night at Trafalgar - 4 riders per team, 250 metres on the front for each - easy peasy, eh? :crazy:

If you can't find 4, come on down yourself and we'll get you a ride on a team; there are always needs for subs..

Might play catchup and do some non-Monday-night runs, started this morning with #1 P51, posted a 24:41, not quite enough for last place :rolleyes: Sub-maximal effort though as just getting over a bad back.

Sheesh P51 is overgrown ATM, need shin guards against the gorse :(
Shame Mutation is closed, Viral Flow is still good though, just a lot of loose debris on the track - needz moar riderz!

Yes, P51 is very grassy/gorsey i hear the council will not be clearing it either. (as you say, we need lots of riders to keep it open!)

Hi Alex

Did a catch up this morning on Week 2, Strava didnt pick up your seg so I created my own to get my time. Check it if you want but I am pretty sure I went where I was meant to go.
25.01

Looking forward to Fringe on Monday.......not really.

Cheers Murray, and yes it looks like you got exactly the correct route.

Just week 1 climb to get fully up to speed (good training for the fringed...)

Looks like you've got the spreadsheet up and running Alex? :thumbsup:

Might pre-empt Monday and have a go up Fringed tomorrow morning if it's not too wet, I have a morning slot free and it looks like track conditions will be too wet for any proper (singletrack) riding so might as well go up the Fringe...

Yes, I think I have it going well, obviously the par table gets better as more times come in.

It will be good if you do a pre-Fringed, it will be the first time to beat..
