Can anyone give me details of the course so I can ride it before the event? I am looking forward to the ups but don't want to suddenly discover any sudden bends at the bottom of the downs :shock: :( :oops:
Thanks

Tried to follow it on the map but the ony Rabout I can find is Al-Rabout in South Lebanon. Can't be the right one because it isn't a hilly area.

Calm down dear and have a nice slice of Soreen. Tony's just resorting to Psy-Ops to try and slow you down. Have a look on the Welly Wheelies website, or give that nice Mr.Wagging-Horn a ring on 01707-327011 :wink:

He's trying to show me a few short cuts 'cos we're gonna win the team prize :lol: maybe

Took a look at the Well in Wheelers web site, what a grand job Badger does on ours.

I work with Tim Chandler who is the web meister for the WW. Maybe I should have a word...

as for team prize, who is in this team Roger? Coz Tony is racing at Herne Hill Good Friday. We could get Ian Short to ride. He was a top tester in his day. As for third man, what about Trev?

Who's entering the race btw. Can you put your name on the thread for Millennium Trophy Events

I may do the Stortford Hilly as well. Thats' a good one.

How about gentle ride around on the coming Saturday.

How about a race? The Welwyn Wheelers do a handicap training race Saturday mornings round the hilly course. Starts at the track at 9.30. I tried it two weeks ago and lastest 20 minutes.

Honest they do. Four groups; when I went my group didn't actually start until 9.45. They finish with one lap of the track. Bit like Paris-Roubaix.

Yeh we did the 10 on restricted gears 72'' was the limit but i only had 39/15 - 70.2 and trev only had 42/15 - 70.9. It was bloody windy so we were reving like hell (or not at all as it was just as quick to freewheel) to birch green and grinding back on the 414 3 times, good workout tho. Trev caught me in the last 1/2 mile but didn't pinch my arse so he couldn't have been trying :D .

We then did the welwyn hilly circuit - which was nice :? offley just kills every time :oops:
