Until this blasted rain stops our weekly Tuesday rides are off people.

It hurts me to know that our ‘Summer’ is passing us by while we are busy staring out of our windows into puddles on the floor outside, watching the rain drops fall like bombs onto our spirits, but fear not my friends! Our time will come.


July 15, 2009

So last nights ride was cancelled due to bad weather, and by the looks of it the rain that we are currently experiencing will persist well into next week so unfortunately the WWFGSC will be on hold until the Lord sees fit for us to have this Heatwave we are so deserved of.

To keep me and hopefully you guys sane and eager to get out riding here is a pic of my Raleigh basking beside me in the sun at Cannon Hill park a couple weeks back, oh the memories!


As always, keep em peeled on Spinwell and on your mobile communication device for updates on rides.

By the way, Luke and Callum it was nice to meet you last night and I am sorry you had a wasted journey but keep your fingers crossed and next week we should be rolling!

WWFGSC Reminder.

The Weekend Workers Fixed Gear Social Club is on, Tonight!

On thing though, I am baffled by the BBC’s weather indicator as one of them says ‘Showers’ and the other one, on the same website I might add says ‘Dry’. Hmmmm. So keep your mobile communications devices near your person for a mass tx message update coming out to you some time this afternoon.

Here are the details again for anyone who missed them!

7.10pm – Pigeon Park, Birmingham.
7.30pm – Hare and Hounds, Kings Heath.
7.45pm – Maypole Island, Alcester Rd.

Then we proceed out towards Earlswood lakes and a nearby local boozer for banter, heckling, and bicycle rubbishing ie: “mines better than yours” that type of thing.

Hopefully see you all later.

ps. If you are interested in joining and have not yet emailed me your number please do so using the ‘Get intouch’ tab located on the top right of this page.

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.

W-W-F-G-S-C Postponed.

July 7, 2009

I have just been out on my lunch break and it is raining cats and dogs and the weather app on my iphone tells me it will remain like this until tomorrow so a Re-schedule to Thursday must take place.

Everyone good with Thurdsay?

I hate postponing and cancelling things but the Lord on high has left me no choice.

All interested in joining please send me your name and number via the ‘get intouch’ tab at the top right of your screen so I can update easier and quicker… the joys of technology!

Sorry about this my people but I guessed no one would really enjoy a wet and soggy ride through the country.

Right so it is raining here in Birmingham but I am hoping it will have calmed down by 7oclock tonight.

Are you guys still up for this? I guess we will find out tonight when I arrive at Pigeon Park…!

Dan mentioned a 7.30pm meet at the Hare and Hounds for the folks who live over those sides. I am happy with this so it is settled.

7.10pm – Town meet – Pigeon Park.
7.30pm – Kings Heath meet – outside the Hare and Hounds.

Read the general and quite loose route here.

For those that manage to read this today while at work or chilling at home could you please leave your name in the comments box so I know how many will be making it.

Also if you have time could you ‘Get Intouch’ at the top right of the screen with your name and phone number… This way I can keep all comers updated should any issues arise between the time you leave you computer and 7oclock.

Thanks and hopefully see you later.

Weekend Workers Fixed Gear Social.

Right then, sorry for the lateness of the deets folks but here goes:

We will meet on Tuesday evening at 7.10pm at Pigeon Park in the city centre and then proceed to cycle out of town onwards through Balsall Heath, Moseley, then Kings Heath to hopefully meet some more people and then out passed the Maypole into the countryside.

We aim to do a 2-3 hour ride and either do a shorter distance and stop at a country pub ( the Peacock perhaps? ) or do a long loop of somesort… but we will leave that decision up to all of us on the day I think.

So them there are the vitals… I hope you can make it and let us hope for good weather!

Another Reminder.

Weekend Workers Fixed Gear Social Club… Soon Come!


Weekend Workers!

June 30, 2009

As I said yesterday we weekend workers must Revolt!

So get yourself together for next tuesday when the heatwave ( said in a whispering voice ) will be truly upon us and the Weekend Workers Fixed Gear Social Club ( WWFGSC ) will get moving.

More deets to follow and as I said, please get intouch with suggestions and perhaps an idea of whether you can or cannot make it so I can try to accommodate everyone.

Any out of town cats feeling this?
Where is my Wolves massive at!?
