Hi folks, anyone got plans for a regular night ride through the coming dark nights?

I'm thinking Tuesdays or Thursdays 7pm for 1 1/2 to 2 hours West Side of Sheffield (Endcliffe, Rivelin, Crookes start) , any interest?

"XC" but nowt too strenuous, just to get out really

was going to ride tonight at 7pm from Tullibardene road.  However I'm pretty tired after a couple of days travelling early morning / Late nights so could re-arrange for tomorrow night if you want ? Same thing Endcliffe - Porters and around a bit and back.

I'm going to start going on regular night rides again for sure.

Wednesday and Friday is best for me.  Looks like there could be a ride every night of the week to choose from!

Once I have my wedding out of the way then I'm planning on getting out on some nght rides to maximise my time with my new bike and to get fitter.

Won't be until mid November though unfortunately.

lol,

I'm under orders to avoid getting any facial injuries or broken limbs prior to the wedding so unfortunately I won't be riding much between now and then.  The new bike isn't due until October though anyway so I still only have the Hitman which is not condusive to pedalling for any length of time.

After playing on a Nomad all weekend though I can't frickin wait to get mine now.

Cool, good interest. I can usually do Fridays too Phil (didn't think that many folks would be up for that) can't do this week though.

Simon if you fancy a quick spin out tommorrow from Endcliffe Park I'd be up for that, how's about 7 at the entrance near that mini roundabout at the end of Rushlings Road.

All others welcome

Great ride tonight James, some stuff I'd not done around Endcliffe area, made a nice change. Have to ride over Loxley / Stannington way and I can show you some of the little bits of singletrack we've dug up.  Away on Hols next week but I'm back for Friday night so may ride then.

cheers.

Any takers this week?

I could do Friday Simon if you're up for that or Thursday if anyone else is interested.

Unlikelly to be able to get on a computer on Thursday so need to know before hand.
