In the absence of the TUG Events page I thought it would be helpful to list the dates of the Full Member Social Rides for 2016 - hopefully this won't mean that too many turn up!

14 Jan 14 Feb 13 Mar 24 Apr 29 May 26 June 24 July 28 Aug 25 Sept 30 Oct 27 Nov 4 Dec..........................Richard P.

Hi Richard - I have a new member Jason Browne that has an IAM pass from a few years ago and may well want to join your February ride - looks like 14th? Can you post any more details (meet place distance etc on the web) always assuming that it is still on.

Cheers

Simon

Hi Richard,

I need to spend some time working on my bike (my heated grips have packed up :cry: ) so I'm not going to be able to make it this Sunday.

I hope the weather was good in Spain.

Jason

He has my sympathy, Spider. In my youth I would regularly travel from Manchester to Bristol on a BSA Bantam in winter. Despite advanced weather protection features like plastic faux-fur mittens, plastic bags tied over feet and an outer vest made from a stout fertilizer bag, I regularly used to arrive so frozen that I could scarcely ride the bike, and had to be thawed out by being placed in a hot bath. That set the seeds for a distaste for riding in the cold which has grown over the years. It peaked a few years ago with the '4 degree rule'; that being the minimum temperature at which I would venture out.

Thanks to a heated jacket, heated grips, and a bike with ABS and traction control, I now sometimes break this rule. It isn't just being a wimp to want to avoid the cold, there is plentiful evidence that being cold and uncomfortable makes you a worse rider, although I freely admit that I am a wimp :-)

Regards
Chris J.

chris It was a bit of tongue in cheek. I have said I wont ride below 5 degrees as we lose grip. so there I was Sunday 1degrees. we all took it easy and had a great day. sometimes I change my mind. other times I don't know what I am on about. I am sure nobody in the club would notice I am a bit cuckoo. see you Sunday on my fazer with heated grips that don't work and cold fingers. :lol:
