It's a badge of honour. I'd have to go 6 minutes slower than last time. With training I might be able to achieve that.
We could set up a bar half way up, so that people can stop for a swift pint
And we could have an egg & spoon style 'ride to the top without spilling your pint' race.
Tell her to take her bike and stick a jersey on her.
Another genius idea.
Surely a cert for the 1st Grupetto woman while still beating Damo.
OK, I'm in to help (not ride).
I have two hard burners I can bring along and I'm planning on driving down so can offer lifts.
Last year I was wth starter (along with @Gutchings) so happy to do that again as I know the drill.
Ok, we should start making a list of those racing or spectating.
We can organise the ride out there separately (in the corresponding ride thread).
So far, we might have the following, and I have provisionally grouped them (possibly incorrectly).
(Maybe also @Señor_Bear and his Rapha ringers)
Spectators (or helping):
Any more? Any changes?
For those of you new-ish to Grupetto it's definitely worth coming along as this has become a classic event. It's a very relaxed (with surprising levels of competition for the slowest time) so competing is fun. And you get some bacon (or veggie equivalent).
Sounds good! I'm getting fat again so I doubt I'll be competing for the win!
@Will you could win this, just put down the clipboard for 6 mins and smash it.
I am up for competing.
Will, you iz good climbr. Yooz shud race.
@PhilChannon @Sam-G @Matt_N
Guys - you will actually be good at this. Unlike the old timers... (myself included).
@Will - big Jod is also competing. @Crowbar
If anyone hasn't seen Dommy's video from his cock cam. Worth a watch. SFW.
Yeah, race it @Will!
I get back that evening from holiday so unfortunately I'll miss this. Would have enjoyed getting involved. Hope the day goes well guys!
Sorry I will be on holiday
Ohh I'm out on the sauce on the Saturday, I'm keen though so put me down as a competitor, just wanted to lead with an excuse immediately.
I remember my first hill climb. it was beautiful. I didn't try hard enough.
I'm racing in Brighton so won't make it. Again.
Ah would have loved to get involved in this. Unfortunately I'm away that weekend so won't make it. Hope you all have a great day though!
That is the Grupetto spirit!
Gonna dust down the skinsuit for this ...
Don't know whether to go before or after you now.
