Sorry to remind you but one or two new members may not know about this. Plus the fact that some of us may need a reminder in any case.
I have my route planned out and Subject to no snow,although it may be raining, I shall be trying to do most of my ride by 3pm- about 20 miles offroad,and then I can sit in my favourite cafe on Eastbourne seafront with a coffee in one hand and a slice of pie in the other.
Not pies this time, but a selection of the deserts on my holidasy in Turkey this year. Yummy as they may look- They all tasted the same- only the colours and shape had been changed to save the identity of their origin
Have left it for a while to let you all think it is not going to happen, but a month or so ago I suggested a Forum new years ride. Along the lines of the Birthday ride, and I wish I could find out who to blame for that one.
This is what I will be doing on January 1st 2006. At 3pm GMT (or London Time) I will on my bike doing a 1 hour ride. Not certain if the 3pm will be at the start, the middle or the end of the ride, but My 1 hour ride will be around 3pm. This will allow many of you on the forum to participate in a Forum Virtual ride. Knowing that some of you will not be up to a 6am ride at your local time, then this time is completely flexible, and so is the day if you are off visiting relations or having to work, or are just completely under the weather from the previous nights celebrations.
Object is to have as many of us riding the new year in, and as many as possible doing it at the same time.
Then there are those of us that will have weather that will not allow you to ride. It doesn't matter if you do it on a trainer, or down the gym, or even just go for a brisk walk. Then there are those of us that will not be able to participate , so their objective is two slices of Pie- preferanby of Irma's standard, to keep up the spirit and to provide Virtual sustinence to the rest of us.
Then as someone else put it "Porn is no good without the pictures
