1 Spreading the PNE flag on Wed 14 Jul 2010, 09:42

bounce Down in the West-country..wet and miserable...the weather's not too good either lol!

jocolor Took part in the Mid Devon CC club TT tonight, didn't know the course but an undulating one, x2 loops of a 5 mile out and back. 27:16 which was OK for the first run out. bounce

affraid One of the time-keepers talked about his previous encounters wth PNE riders, two of them (many years ago. A chap called Brown and another chap who beat him on a 200 mile race, but didn't over-take until mile number 199! So it tends to be embedded in his memory for life! Nice chap, friendly club with a handful of youngsters taking part. bounce

bounce Okehampton on thursday if the terrible weather down here lets-up, aparently you can easily reach 45 mph on their 10 mile course (but of course round here what goes down goes back up with a vengeance! Laughing






Suspect Absolute gales here tonight (Thursday) so will have to give the S40/10 a 'raincheck' - there IS a pun there! affraid There's always next week bounce

Very Happy Only TT club this week is Mid Devon CC club 10 on Tuesday (if it doesn't rain - claypits make the road treacherous when wet) as the Okehampton on Thursday is an 'open' and I never got a CTT entry in on time. Suspect

bounce Weather overcast and raining but thought I'd get out of the city and out to the moors - Dartmoor. Had my PNE 'Juliet' on so flying the flag, had forgotten how beautiful it is out here - even in the rain! Got a little carried away and ended going up past Sheepstor a 16% that goes on...and on...and on but the view was worth it. A lap around Burrator reservoir and back to base, a couple of hours well spent. The roads are quiet and you're cycling on single track roads next to streams and waterfalls....idyllic. bounce

Next year mate we must drag the club to these out-posts. Its stunning up in skye as well. Cheap accommodation and well known scenic routes as well. cant ask for more.

I can get 5 people and bikes to Skye for £140. The accommodation is Very (VERY) comfortable (reasonably priced)and we can be back in time for tea a stickies on Sunday night if we wanted to spend just a long weekend doing it!

Just a thought.

Very Happy I think organising a weekend away isn't beyond us - even if it may take 'negotiation' with the 'better halves'- obviously work patterns would also dictate. We shouldn't be put of at what can be achieved judging by latest exploits - even the New Forest just down the road from Portsmouth is an area of outstanding beauty PNECC needs to conquer 'en-mass'. Very Happy

No The liquid sunshine is out in the West-country so the Mid Devon TT is cancelled this evening No, not to worry, tomorrow Dartmoor will get a further attack..."to Princetown and beyond!" bounce

Very Happy Crikey! affraid It's stopped raining for a while! Managed to get out back over the moors. This time only the wind to contend with. There were some lovely hills today leading to 1400 feet ascent at the highest point. Terrific views, only the sheep and ponies to 'second guess' and keep your fingers crossed on the descents! 'Undulating' - understatement! affraid

bounce You can check it out if you so wish, it's in two legs as I had finger trouble at the 20 mile mark (checking the gps map) Suspect

The PNE are no strangers to the New Forest. We even had a club run down to Lyndhurst and back in the days when both Simon Hickman and Guy Watson were racing in pink and black. Must do it again - my challenge for the first Sunday after school hols still stands.

Suspect absolutely washed out today - torrential rain.....so I went for a ride....why not?

bounce x6 laps of Burrator Reservoir (3.85 miles a lap) 39 ring for the first then 53 ring for 2-5 building as you go to put in the best effort on the 5th, then final lap in 39 to cool down (that's a joke..when you're soaked to the skin - hey ho...such is life) 23 miles of undulating beauty, thank you very much! bounce

Suspect Another day of West-country liquid sunshine makes the road trip to Newton Abbot one of limited chance....wet - no time trial....and to be honest the stormy weather we're having today even makes a trip to the moors a pointless effort No .....so it's maintenance and monotony.....

.....no time trial thursday either due to commitments.... pale

bounce you never know it might be a nice day for the moors tomorrow????? geek

Very Happy Lovely weather this afternoon, so decided to go out onto Dartmoor, pass through Tavistock and into Cornwall leaving Devon and takling the climbs around Gunnislake - 800ft plus climb with the latter part at 6%affraid. (Check out the link below on mapmyride and tick to show the gradient).

pale This hits you just as you pass the 21 mile mark of the ride. There's plenty of undulation to keep you going all the way back to the Tamar bridge - another awesome crossing. Shocked

Suspect The route was on main roads but down here the motorists are quite happy to wait behind you until safe to pass and the surfaces are good for +40mph affraid

http://www.mapmyride.com/route/gb/plymouth/595128033947743805

bounce 37.5 miles 2 and a half hours - joy. sunny

sunny gorgeous sunshine (windy but who cares) chance to just stretch the legs on an 'undulating' course around Yelverton and the Meavy [Steven Spielberg is out here filming War Horse at the moment - so there's quite a circus in a few of the fields..but nothing to spoil the view] 21 miles of some lovely hills, check out below: bounce

http://www.mapmyride.com/route/gb/plymouth/731128345679835703

doesn't show how steep the hills were either side of the Walkham River, had to get off twice and walk! affraid First one a car coming downhill with nowhere to pass - so I rode into the bank of nettles No Second one a little later a tractor and trailer descending and I managed to get in by a gate. On both I couldn't get back on the bike due to how steep they were so had to try and walk it up the last bit of both clown That's the only problem down here with some of the moor lanes - only enough room for a car...period!

bounce Lovely evening though and still managed almost 40 miles sunny
