Hello matey, good to see another vegan downhiller!

Where were you thinking of having a MTB meetup then?

If you're anywhere near to the Forest of Dean, I've booked an uplift day there on August 13th.

Cheers, Chris

I should be able to join you Chris :)
I'll see if I can book from work later...

edit: Now booked :D
Hope to see you there, I'm the guy with scruffy long hair and a red Iron Horse (that badly needs a service)!

Nice one John!

I'll be the one on the Rocky Mountain Flatline so see you there.

I'm going down there with a bunch of mates. We normally ride Stile Cop on Cnnock Chase (check out http://www.racersguild.blogspot.com/) and Ambergate in Derbyshire, amongst oteher places. Both worth checking out as there are some great trails there!

See you on the hil John

Cheers, Chris :)

THanks matey, and sorry to hear about the injury :shock: Must be a serious one to keep you off the bike for 4 months! I broke my wrist last year and was off the bike for 6 weeks. It was more frustrating than anything.

Get well soon dude!

Hey Chris,

Yeah looking foward to sat. I did a couple of racer's guild events a year or so back, it's a great way to get into racing. I've been kind of meaning to get back there but not really got the racer's spirit. Not been to Style Cop for far too long but yeah it's pretty awesome there, for the amount of space there's loads of trails.

I can't wait for Saturday! Its looking OK weather wise too :)

If you've not been to Stile Cop for some time, you should drop by, we've done a load of building over tha last few months. Ther was some forestry work a while back and that lead to some of the trails needing to be rebuilt!
I'm not really a racer either (I'm usually near the bottom of the timing sheets!) but it's loads of fun, a great crowd and having a number on the front og your bike adds an extra little bit of excitement to the riding :D

See you Saturday matey!

What happened ?

I'm the man they couldn't kill ! I cannot be destroyed with conventional weapons !

And probably the former fastest British Vegan 10, 25 and 50 mile TT rider. Probably.

Was an awesome day, nice to meet you Chris. Sorry I didn't get to say bye as I stopped to session the top of corkscrew, then just had to have a couple of tries on the ski run table :)

Are you on facebook btw, I'm John Rebelistic on there?

I can't remember if you said you're coming over to the Racers Guild session this Sunday or not? Hope so but if not, I'll no doub catch up with you sometime soon.

Cheers, Chris
