Cambridge meet 31/8/2008
« on: 15, July, 2008 - 11:26:37 »
have sugested this before i think it would be around an 10 mile trip taking in all the sights of cambridge including the old sinclair building that was the old water bottleing plant all the route minus about 2 miles is all on cycle paths plenty of good pubs and good ale and lagers and ciders i have asked cambridge united fc if we can use there car park for the day as it is in my back garden so that should not be a problem if anyone can come up with dates any week end is cool i think but will need a loan of a c5 as mine is still a victim of a scuffle with a lorry cheers guys lets get these forums back to what they should be

Count me in this time, Cambridge is close enough for me to be able to get back in time for evening shift, Any sunday except 17th august (the royal run)will do me.
p.s if its before can you bring me a pair of rear tyres Karl ?

This sounds like a good place to have a meeting. Since I've got the weekend off I'd like to nominate 30/31 August  ;D .My shift pattern is a bit of pain when it comes to meetings  :(  .Otherwise, choose a date and I will see if I can get some annual leave .

This should give you some time to fit the replacement axle and get your C5 back up and running :-*

*Andy: I've loads of tyres mate, dont worry . I might even get you to test some new ones I've got in that are a very close match to the original Sinclair tread pattern  ;)

Cheers Alan

Having had a brief look around Cambridge (my satnav threw a wobbly on the way home  :o) it looks like a fab place to hold a run. There are bike lanes everywhere  ;D

Glad you like the"new" C5  ;)

See you Sunday !

I was going to attend this one, but if you not planning to set off till after 1.00pm then till would make it to tight for me to get back home to go to work, so i had better give it a miss, have a great run and i will look forward to it next time.
