Tomorrow night as planned.

The BBC weather site says it will be a little cloudy and maybe one or two light showers so I guess that means we are good to go. Agreed?

This time will go a slightly different route to take in the beautiful Earlswood lakes, then a trip to the local ale house for light refreshments and a bite of my favourite cheese and onion roll.

7.10pm Pigeon Park.
7.30pm Hare and Hounds, Kings Heath.
7.45pm Maypole island.

keep em peeled for tx messages and updates.

Safety in Numbers.

July 10, 2009

Last nights ride was awesome, I counted ten people in the peloton which for the first social is amazing.

Hopefully the folks that couldn’t make it last night will be able to get involved in next week’s ‘Weekend Workers Fixed Gear Social Club’ because as they say… ‘The more the merrier’ and there is ‘safety in numbers’.

Big thanks to Dan, Josh, Hardy, Fin, Teddy, Brett and an even bigger thanks to Tom, Nick and Chris for catching the train in from Wolvo and Stourbridge… Now that is what I call dedication!


Blue skies!

I should have had more faith.

My cycle home last night was nice, dry and with a hint of sun… can you imagine how wounded I was that I had made the call to postpone the WWFGSC ride?

Anyway, the ride into the countryside will definitely commence tomorrow evening, Thursday.

7.00 Meet in Pigeon Park.
7.30 Meet more folks at the Hare and Hounds in Kings Heath.

I mass txd a lot of you last night to reiterate but if you did not recieve a tx could you please send me your digits ( excluding Teddy, Chris Headley and Brett ) so I can update quicker and easier than posting on here. That way you don’t have to move… I will send all the info you need on rides right to your blower! Easy.

Another Reminder.

Weekend Workers Fixed Gear Social Club… Soon Come!


Weekend Workers Revolt!

June 29, 2009


After chatting with Josh it became quite obvious that the weekend workers need something, something to get them ( and me ) involved in the action.

I hear and see the words ‘Alleycat’, ‘Race’, ‘Ride’ and my eyes light up… then I see the words ‘Saturday’ or ‘Sunday’. Rubbish, I work most Saturdays and some Sundays.

That is where this comes in…
Josh coined it the “Weekend Workers Fixed Gear Social Club” and it is basically this:
In the month of July our evenings are hella long and as you all know we don’t see a proper sunset until around 10pm so weekend workers this one is for you.

Throughout the month of July, every Tuesday night at 7pm we will depart from the city centre and head out to the countryside for a 2 – 3 hour ride, nothing too hardcore just a nice merry cycle to get the heart and lungs working and more importantly for the socializing! Don’t worry newbies either as we will incorporate a few stops en route for the folks with burning legs and wheezy chests and no doubt a pub stop later on for those who like a sip of the amber nectar.

If anyone has any questions about this or has a problem with the time or day please get in-touch as it would be nice to accommodate all of you and by the way, these rides are for anyone not just the WW.

I will post more details about the destination and meeting place tomorrow.
