  • The Great (Push) Bike Ride 2009

    Anyone else doing this ??:

    The Great (Push) Bike Ride: Sunday 22nd November 2009

    There's three distances available: 10kms, 53kms, 106kms

    It's always been a great day and it's for a good cause.

    People do it on all kinds of bikes, although they don't like us bringing TT bikes because the bars are aparently dangerous

    When I get sad, I stop being sad, and be AWESOME instead. True story.

        I am going to do the 106km if I am not at work.

        So they won't allow aerobars then Big Dave? That sucks, it's a nightmare getting them set up right again after taking them off.

        The young guy who stays at the house I stay at did it last year ( 106 ), said it took him about 3 hours 20min, but he's got his bike set up as a single speed, and he got 2 punctures, so I reacon on a 18 / 20 speed and no punctures I could crack it under 3 hours easy, probably about 2 1/2 hours, and better than that if I train for it.

          I think they do, Last year I used a proper tri bike and they had a bit of a sad saying the bars were dangerous to others, but I still rode and didn't really have a problem with other riders of officals

            So the offical line is no aerobars, but unofficially it's be careful if you want to use them? I'll be careful then

            I just got new wheels too, will be a good thrash for them

              bingo, the bars are really just frowned upon (but like you said, a pain in the arse to remove and then reinstall again), this year i'm just going to take by road training bike that's got aero bars on it.
              Just keep your eyes open along the way and keep in mind that most these people are unpredictable cage drivers. I saw four different crashes that ended up in 10+ person pile ups
