last days of summer

well last week we thought that winter was here, venturing out on thursday 26th august me and massey set off at 7 in the cold and rain, both wearing water proofs after a real slog of a ride in the mud with me nearly coming off 3 times (due to my tyres being 50PSI and pinging off roots left right and centre) we got back to the pub and as it wasnt as cold as we thought so i was wetter on the inside of my waterproof than the rest of my body which was a lesson learnt!!!! Paul then turned up in a similar state. As we sat in the pub window we noticed a splinter cell group cycling past in the wind and rain. Well this week the summer seems to have returned, both tuesdays and thursdays ride were done in glorious sunshine and with not even a hint of a breeze both rides were done at a decent enough pace and with Paul having the funniest off on tuesday the fun never stops!!!!!
there has been very little activity on here so i thought i would try and coax people out for the last few rides of summer before the dredded bog returns!!!!!
so get your bikes out of the shed and come on out for a blast we are still doing tuesdays and thursday leaving the e and t at 7
hope to see you out soon

10th April Peaks Ride and Ampthill Curry

We are looking to do a AMB Peaks ride on the 10th April, leaving from Ampthill early in the morning, doing a ride them heading back to Ampthill in the afternoon, heading home to wash up and then meeting for a curry possible at the Rajgate and then a few beers afterwards.

Am looking into possible routes and Dave is also going to flick through his back catalogue of mtb magazines to find a route.

So let us know if you are up for it. There isnt much to arrange other than make sure everyone has got a lift so should be pretty simple hopefully!

london to brighton

Hi chaps,
i know a few of us have done this ride before and i know a few were talking about it, so this year i am being more proactive and i will initiate the call. I am setting up a team to ride the london to brighton british heart foundation bike ride that is happening on Sunday 20th June, the registration is on the Team entry

To help your chances of getting a place follow these simple steps:
Before Registration opens you should:
Think about a team name : Ampthill Mountain Bikers

Decide on a team leader who will need to register and pay on Tuesday 2 March 2010: Me
The team leader should set up a BHF website account : which i have done

Prospective teammates should all set up BHF website accountsas well as this will save time later on : anyone wishing to enter will need to do this

Everyone needs to add to their address books to help prevent BHF emails being sent to your junk folder.

When registration opens on 10am Tuesday 2 March 2010:
Your team leader should log onto the BHF website
They then need to register themselves for the London to Brighton Bike Ride, pay their £31 entry fee for the event and then reserve places (up to 20) for their teammates.

Your team leader will then get several emails, including an invitation to register.

Forward the invitation to register email to your prospective teammates. who will be able to register and pay for their place in the Bike Ride by clicking on the link in the email.

Team members have until 4pm on 5 March 2010 to use this link to register for the Ride, or until your reserved places have all been used.Make sure everyone has the right team name, and their credit or debit card details handy to pay the £31 entry fee.

I hope you are all up for this let me know before the 2nd March so i can get an idea of interest.
