Ray Eden weekend

 Ray Eden weekend

In memory of the great man mountain that was our very own super scouser Ray Eden, on the weekend of the 27th / 28th April we are arranging a memorial ride. If you knew Ray, or of his eploits, and want to pay tribute please come join us . 

Saturday will be a road ride starting at Magna , exact details to be confirmed but its looking like - 

FAT KNACKERS  Group - For the slow / old / decrepid / lazy / unfit - a ride round the North nottinghamshire lanes , the brave will soldier on down to holme pierrepoint to watch Rays son Finn putting his lungs to the test at Holme pierrepoint rowing regatta , the rest will just have a nice ride , a stop in clumber , and generally a good old potter . Time to catch up and remember and have some fun . ETD Approx 8.30 - check website and facebook for final details . 

CANT STAND THE PAIN GROUP - Full 80 mile ish we reckon , nice steady tempo group but without the lung busting leg searing accelerations of Randle and Lovatt . Join this group if you dont like intensity and your not interested in proving your athletic manhood . There will be no willy waving in this group - steady as she goes but you should have at least a semblance of form and ability , were going all the way to holme pierrepoint , it can get a bit grippy on the Nottinghamshire lanes so will still be a good workut . 

ETD approx 8.45  

CANT STAND THE HEAT GROUP - Led by Lovatt and with a possible guest appearance from Wayne the train Randle this will be the fastmans group . If you want to willy wave and ride like a dickhead join this group and you probably end up learning some discipline .  Ray would have loved this group . Should be 80 miles swift n fast , bit of thro and off , but watch out for the infamous Randle words on the way back "Lets put a loop on" . 


Up at Worsborough , lets not forget that not only was Ray a great cyclist he was the definition of a great family man . 

Sunday festivities will be low key and there will be an MTB ride and some family trans penine trail riding . 

There will be plenty of clowns there in the form of planet x staff , hopefully a few freebies , and we might even have finished the shop fit if Brooksy gets his finger out . 

Watch the website / facebook - probably 11-3 . 

Yes I know its badly organised , and last minute - but trust me , that is definitely what Ray would have liked .
