    New to the group

    Post  Dan on Mon Feb 16, 2009 2:44 am

    Hi,

    I am new to the group. I am based in Godalming and am looking to hook up with some local MTB riders - I figured this would be a good place Cool

    Could someone let me know how this group works - do you meet regularly for rides etc and do you ride from Godalming?

    Thanks

    Dan

    Hi Dan,

    Welcome to VCGH. We normally have a regular MTB club ride on a Sunday morning from Godalming, though we also try and include a ride form Haslemere once a month. We meet-up at Godalming (or Haslemere) train station, 8:45am for a 9am start.

    Ride details will be posted in the calendar during the week and if you’ve registered, then you should receive an email describing the ride (mileage, time etc). Sunday rides are generally run at a social pace, so it might be worth attending one of these at some point prior top joining the club.

    We also try and do some rides on a Saturday, though these tend to be either fast-paced training rides or long, harder ‘epic-type’ rides. During January and February the club has been running some rides at Swinley forest, near Bracknell on Saturday mornings, and there will be another ride this Saturday. Again, ride details will be posted during the week, so keep an eye out for further details.

    Unfortunately, the club’s website is in a state of flux at the moment. The regular forum and calendar have been affected by actions outside of the clubs control, so we’re running this temporary forum and the ride calendar linked off the home page. Hopefully, normal service will be resumed soon!

    If you have any more questions then just ask, otherwise I hope to see you out on a club ride soon.

    Greg

    edit: I should have mentioned that you need to be over 18 to join the club Neutral

    Ride this weekend

    I'm also new and would love to come and join you for a ride. Not sure I am quick enough to join your Saturday ride? To give you an idea of my current standard I raced at Gorrick at the weekend (14th in Fun so just under 33 min laps). Much quicker than everyone around me on the open sections - less so on the tight twisty more technical bits! Hence the need for a bit of practice at Swinley or similar.

    Tony, fear not, you'll be fast enough for the ride on Saturday (and Sunday!).

    Greg.

    Thanks Greg

    Can't see anything in the link to the temporary calendar this coming Saturday (21 Feb) - is it 8:45 at the Look Out car park at Swinley again?

    quicker than me tony!! by six places, I wont be at swinley this week, due to being dragged shopping. i probably wont make the trolls ride either due to the other halves work commitments.

    i will however be at crowthorne for round 3, maybe see you there and grab a cuppa after if you like.

    Just a quick thank you to Mark, Greg, Mike, Win, Ben, Jess, Danya, Nicky (sure I have left someone out!) for taking me round Swinley on Saturday. I really enjoyed it and was just the sort of terrain I need experience on. Sorry I had to leave so abruptly but I only made it home 10 minutes ahead of our lunch guests!

    Hi all,
    Just joined the forum. Fairly new to Godalming and have a brand new mtb sitting in my garage looking far too clean (okay, I've used it twice). Very interesting in coming out on some mtb rides. I'd consider myself in good health but would rather give the red runs a miss for now! albino

    Hi Keithf, welcome to the forum! There's a MTB ride this Sunday from Godalming over to Frensham ponds, if you can make it? We're meeting at the railway station 8:45am for a 9am start and back before 1pm.

    Greg.

    this weekends ride was accidentally posted (by me) as a red ride. Frensham (westerly) routes are generally not technically demanding
