A combined run

It was very cold and frosty this morning, so I was surprised to see so many people at the clock tower when I arrived a little late this morning! I soon realised, though, that the Birds Hill run had come over to test the roads - and found them very icy indeed. A couple of them decided to go home there and then, but 4 of them decided to come along with us.

29th Dec Bird Hills ride - never turn your bike over to fix a puncture!!!

On the first really cold day of the winter 8 hardy members (Simon, Brett, Heather, Les, Mike, Dan, Stuart and myself) arrived at the golf club with various tails of slippery roads.  However the general consensus was the main roads were ok. Simon noticed he’d forgotten a water bottle, so his house would be the first destination.

22nd Dec Bird Hills Group ride - In fighting cost the win.

With 8 riders (Simon, Mike, Stuart, Brett, Heather, Colin, Magnus and myself) at the golf club for the penultimate ride of 2013, no discussion was required regarding the route as that had already been agreed – The traditional, no brains required, route up Pishill.

Bird Hills group ride 15th Dec - TV presenters

As the group containing myself, Heather, Simon, Mike, Stuart and Colin assembled various discussions were had covering topics like: Colins new chain rings, getting back to watch Man U v Aston Villa  and some lightweight heated under gloves and feet warmers recommended by Heather.  Hopefully she’ll post a link for these.

1st Dec - Bird Hills ride - Chain maintenance and the Hare.

On arrival at the golf club just before 8.30 it didn’t appear fully light and it remain grey all morning.  A total of 9 riders gathered.  Les came armed with a chain checking tool to test Colin’s chain after his gear shifting problems of the previous week.  Today Colin was on his summer bike with the expectation that was all working well.  A couple of seconds later any joy disappeared as Les announce his chain was worn.  Several others were checked with about 50% tested being warn.  More bike maintenance required.
