The Barbarian Cycling Club

A Cycling Club with no home

How are you Pete?

Out riding yesterday I asked if all Barbarians were out riding and Tony said you’d had a bout of Labrynthitus? How are you? on the mend?

Will you still be up for the Epic on the 5th?

  1. Pete has had labytrinthitis (amongst other things), Rich S is riding to a low heart rate as part of his recovery. Both whooped my arse all around Derbyshire.

    If the Barbarians were all fit we could do a massively quick team 50 miler !

  3. Hi guys,

    yes a dose of the pox has just cleared up thank-you and I am fighting fit again – I am now however struggling to find a pair of brown lycra shorts in view of my p. poor preparation for the Epic.
    My goal had been :’To Finish’.
    I might revise that to ‘To Start’

  4. I’ve heard of cycle ’til you’re sick but not cycle ’til you sh*t yourself, that’s a new one. I look forward to the show at the Epic.

  5. I like it – a new epitaph.

    ‘Here lies XXXXX. As in life he cycled till he shat.’

  6. This is sounding more like whacky races with Pete as Dick Dastardly dropping his brown slick as a slippery obstacle to those following.

  7. We should enter some sportive or other as ‘Wacky Racers’.

  9. Moving the tone up a notch – is anyone riding Sunday? I’m thinking 3 hours in the hills.

    I think I will race the cyclo-x at Allestree tomorrow if anyone fancies coming along/riding. Finn & Oscar will be riding, I think Fred is too.
    Noon for the kids, 2pm for the bigger kids.
    Any takers?

  10. I’m out for a couple of hours tomorrow at 7.00, linking up with Richard and some others. Adrian is going out on his own early for a longer ride.

    Are you going to be riding the Beeston sportive next week?

    Good luck with the race…..I think my day is spoken for so won’t get to see you.

  11. @ Pete – How did everyone get on at the cyclo-x?

    Did you manage to get that hilly ride in? Are you going to ride next week?

  12. Hi guys,
    sorry for the late response – the cyclo-x was great fun and far harder than I had even imagined. However, riding with style and elan (and lungs far out over the bars) I managed 93rd of 128 finishers.
    My aim for the next one is to be lapped only once. oh and to get some team support riding alongside.
    Finn & Oscar both raced too and did considerably better than their dad.
    As regards tomorrow’s ride, I do hope to ride although I now have an ailment the doctor referred to as “raggedy arse” and am taking antibiotics and regularly squeezing cupfuls of pus out of – actually that’s probably about enough detail thinking about it.
    Hope to see you in the morning.

  13. Pete, I liked you yesterday. Now all I can think about is your pus’y posterior.
