    TE meet up in the UK?

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    Hi

    I'm seeing more and more posts from TE members in the UK and found myself thinking it would be fun to have a meet up in 2011. What do you all think?

    Place and date will obviously take some sorting out, but I think it'd be fun.

    I'd be up for something in London or the southwest, subject to childcare (ie my husband!) being available. Great idea!

    Hello from Wales too! A meet-up would be great, anywhere is possible with enough planning. West coast of wales isn't really convenient for anywhere...but there's some lovely riding round here if you're not afraid of hills

    Question

    So we are six strong?

    Not sure how I found myself here, but I was looking for something women specific cycling related.

    How about the rest of you?

    Hi all, it's been such a busy summer, sorry I haven't given more thought to organising a TE-UK meet up.

    any ideas? are you all booked up for the August bank holiday weekend? I'll be in Oxfordshire then which isn't exactly central but a lot closer to you non-Londoners?

    And I found TE while searching for info on saddle fit, as my Brooks B17 was killing me.

    I'm afraid I'm booked up here in Wales for the August bank holiday week-end. Would be fun to meet up, perhaps some time later in the autumn?

    I got recruited to TE by my aunt in California, Trek420. We have since recruited my mom in Norway, DuckOnWheels. A very international family....
    My mom is actually here that bank holiday week-end and would probably also love to join in for a TE meet-up. If it wasn't such a long drive for a daytrip we migth consider it, unfortunately everywhere is far away from west Wales.

    I was looking for info about WSD & off the peg road bikes for small women but also thought a women specific forum would be interesting. The London Fixed Gear and Single Speed forum in the UK can be interesting but I don't ride fg/ss and that understandably is its major, though not sole, focus. It surprised me when I couldn't find a UK based women specific forum – maybe you've had more luck. The angst expressed in general forums when someone suggested a ladies only section was also an eye opener. Anyway, TE kept coming up, looked interesting, so thought I'd join and see what I could pick up.

    If we can decide on a date, how many of you would be willing to come to London? I'd be happy to organise a ride with a bit of sightseeing, tea stops and/or pub lunch.
