26.08.2008 18:45 to 21:00
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zurich
Event Type: Sports
Meeting Point: Triemli tram stop.

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 reasonably ok for a change!

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.
RSVP'd Yes: 3 (3 members and No guests) RSVP'd No: 4
  • Woodsie - Busy with the last task of the project from hell, the post project piss up. Will win my freedom back for next week's ride.
  • Traynor - I am back in California indefinintly. Would be there in a heartbeat if I return. Great riding and riders!
  • roastbeef - Going for a curry tonight, but to prove I'm not just wimping out I went up this morning. The trail is still a little muddy but ok (I only fell off once) for a novice like me, but if the weather stays like it is now it should dry out by this evening

RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

Might want to shift this back to a 6.30pm start as it seems to be getting dark a lot quicker recently (or maybe that's due to recent cloudy evenings...)

Lets see how it goes tomorrow, and if necessary move it back next week. Maybe we should leave promptly at 18:45 though, so it would be great if everyone could turn up on time.

Bailing out of tonight's ride. A ride over the flatlands last night showed me that my knee still isn't OK

If you get tired, Eire will clip into your spare pedal and help you out, while pedalling his bike with his remaining leg...

I'm not sure how well my legs work at the moment. But I'll give it a go anyway.

Re: [Zurich] Mountain Biking Uetliberg Tues 26th August 2008

BTW the other day we went hiking to the Uetligerg and went to come down with the train.

When the train reached the top, 2 guys came out the train with their MTBs and a big smile on their faces.

There is not much control of the prohibition I guess.
