Yeah, I have lived that particular dream.
Maybe next time

Hi Mate

 

No don't need exact numbers, just nice for everyone to know who is likely to attend.

 

Cheers

Hi Guys,

Given the pretty crap weather forecast for this Sunday I'm pulling the pin on the drive to Scarborough.

Call me nancy but I don't like taking the car out in the rain or the idea of a long rainy drive there and back.

I hope everyone has safe and enjoyable day and I look forward to next time!

Cheers Tony

Haha, I don't think so

Don't like getting it wet either, it's been in the family since new.

I think the mighty 170Pursuit would still struggle to get the tail out even given the volume of rain forecast!

Hi

I am looking at the forecast and am somewhat undecided. I don't mind goung for a drive in the (will reduce the traffic) but not sure how much of an opportunity to look at and talk about the cars we will get if it is wet.

Will make acall on Sat afternoon - how would folks feel about delaying by two weeks ?

Cheers
PB

If the forecast stays true it won't make the day very enjoyable.

I have the next few Sundays free so open to a reschedule.

Thanks guys, it's all good. Hopefully the weatherman is wrong by miles and turns out to be a great day. Or just meet up in your sensible cars and go find a pie shop!

 

Congrats on the safe arrival of Tahlea.

At least if it's wet on Sunday there shouldn't be too many cyclists about, we could do a wet run in sensible cars. Don't know if I'll be around in 2 weeks, depends on the Dr on Tuesday. Hopefully the Zed gods give us a nice day this Sunday, happy to be guided by you PB.

Actually, I just looked at the forecast, can we make it Wednesday? Mostly sunny, 5% chance of rain, 21 degrees.

I would be more than happy pushing it back by two weeks as it doesn't look like I'll be ready for this Sunday mechanically. Weather isn't the nicest of times either, I'll be coming along either way in a daily driver :)

If it's just wet I am happy to come along however if its pouring as forecasted I will not be attending, just a little too risky especially around the RNP roads..

 

Happy for PB to make the call on Sat arvo. I am also free in 2 weeks time.

 

Shaun.

The challenge with this run and rain is all three parts dont suit wet weather.

The meet point has no shelter
The road has lots of shaded and slippery areas
The Scarborough Hotel is very small inside and has minimal shelter outside.

Head for a Pie shop, could be a good idea, anyone know a good one in the area ?

Cheers

PB
