29.07.2008 18:45 to 21:00
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zurich
Event Type: Sports
Meeting Point: Triemli

We'll go for a spin on the mountain bikes once again on Tuesday evening. If you are interested in coming sign up here so we know when we have a full complement before heading on up.

Weather permitting we will take the usual the route up Uetliberg, enjoy the view for a few minutes, and then take the Antenna trail or perhaps another trail back down.

The meeting point is here http://tinyurl.com/5bq6q2

The weather is looking a little iffy so stay tuned here for any change in plans. If the conditions of Uetliberg are too bad to ride on Tuesday, I will post an alternative route on this thread.

All welcome, but make sure you have a helmet and if possible gloves.


Small Print: We will be riding on singletrails, so minimum requirements are a reasonable mountain bike with knobbly tires and a willingness to at least attempt the trail.
Anyone participating in the EF rides are doing so at their own risk.

Unfortunately I am look even more unlikely that I will make it tomorrow.

As well as recovering from injuries sustained after a tram track jumped out and body slammed me into the ground, I have just been given a work task for tomorrow which means that it is unlikely that I will be getting out of the office before 20:00.

Is that tram track related to the bridge that jumped out and violently assaulted me two weeks ago?

Considering that walking up stairs is still a bit of a challenge, I don't think that pedalling up Uetliberg is going to be realistic.

Skinny tires SUCK!!! I have been campaigning against them since back in the day. (don't tell anyone I have them on my road bike/ commuter )
Hope you feel better soon. Mass quantities of alcohol will have you feeling fine in no time. Just beware of the common side effect known as the "hey watch me jump this....." or superman syndrome as it's more commonly known. Wait....is that how you got into this situation???

Re: Mountain Bike (MTB) Ride 29th July 2008

No, I think the problem was that I was sober at the time. Since then I have only been able to cycle pain free when I have had a skin full, and have proven to be completely invincible in that state.

I love biking drunk, I also love skate/snow boarding drunk as well. Its great until you wake up the next day missing a large chunk of skin and can barely walk. But damn it was fun at the time.

I see you must have been reading other threads too!

In this instance I'm just worried about the Yokine and Woodsie rain jinx, since I cleverly left my rain jacket at home this morning. Would rather not get caught in the downpour that I fear may show its ugly head at some point this evening.

My previous post was of course meant in the nicest possible way! Honest!

Re: Mountain Bike (MTB) Ride 29th July 2008

...had to create an account here since I don't want any more to be called with the bad word Eire used two weeks ago to describe my non-posting attitude.

Actually, these jumping grounds are common around Zurich; last week when I was pushing hard to catch up with the EF crowd going down the antennatrail, the evil gravel jumped up and bit me. Fighting it only destroyed my glove and covered me with dust.

Too bad there's no way I can have time on tuesdays for biking in the next two weeks.

Have fun!

That word was probably "Lurker"... its ok... one of my mates Lurks a lot here. I don't hold it against him!

I'm guessing that you are the chap who rides a Cannondale that was with us on Zuriberg two weeks ago. I didn't see you last week, sorry if I missed you. Hope you make it back again soon.

The top half was willing but the rest persuaded me to stop at the badi.
Hopefully me and woodsie will be back to full power for next week.
