  1. Won’t be there tonight too much on at work. Still stuck there now. Will try and be there next week.

    As for the roller racing, they take it pretty seriously, they had an event with Rapha cc a couple of months back that.

  3. thanks. i’ve realised my previous message has logistical issues. i’ll wait at oyb til 7.15. if the gate’s shut, don’t assume i’ve gone home though – we try our best to keep pesky customers out of the place…

  7. I’m happy to wait. i’ll probably bring some money for food but won’t have enough for a full blown meal.

  8. wagamama is very nice, as long as someone else is paying. 7 quid would be borderline acceptable for school-hall ambience, nasty japanese lager, and noodles in broth. unfortunately, you’re looking closer to 15, in my experience.

    however, i really want to ride, so can you fuckers EITHER wait at pigeon park til 7.15, OR get to oyb before 7.15. cheers.

  9. I dunno dude… I think it’s gonna rain, according to the forecast.

    I fancy ending it at somewhere that serves food… maybe wagamama or something… or is that too expensive?

    Never been before and I know it’s something like 7 quid for a meal, and lord knows what the portion sizes are – unlikely to fill up an athlete’s stomach no doubt.
