ACME Arrow Pubinar 16th Feb 2019
« on: January 14, 2019, 05:37:23 pm »
It's that time of year again ... last Christmas and 'The Legendary Epiphany Extravaganza' are now history, some of us have staked their claim to a PBP place already, with others to follow, and so we come to Easter Arrows.

Do we have a consensus regarding teams, routes, start times, or is it all up in the air again? I'd like to captain a fixed team again if enough are interested. There's a ColVelo team brewing too I hear ...

So, a Wednesday night, or Friday/Saturday pubinar so other hopefuls [maybe non-ACME, all welcome!] can travel to attend? Any thoughts?

I'm happy to captain a team again ... I've got an easy route planned with sit-down stops for the most part.

Fridays would be difficult to make for me, but I could make the following dates for a pubinar:

Wed: 6th or 13th Feb
Sat: 2nd or 9th Feb

Hmm I can't do 2nd and 2nd & 9th complicated by six nations rugby, so would need a pub with no TV
Weds: 6th is The Viper, 13th is The Endevour neither of which are pubinar friendly ('dev has darts on iirc and viper not very public transport friendly?)
20th probably out as it's Wye Wednesday 200km from Gravesend so might have a few local arrowists on that plus it's local half term.

Sat: 16th ??

Regards,

Joergen

Sat 16th Feb is good for me. Or we could change one of those Weds to a different location.

Saturday 16th Feb is ok by me. 2nd is Huggy's Knights Templar 100km.

So: train friendly [Chelmo/Witham pub] or the Spiritual Home?

I'll cycle so venue isn't an issue for me ... I guess the major consideration will be somewhere quiet on a Saturday night.

16th Feb is currently good for me. Would like to commit to a fixed team, but will need to square it away with the Boss, Easter can be busy with traction engines etc. Hopefully will be all healed up by then...

7pm is good for me. I'll probably finish a ride there and eat before 7pm.

Keen to join an arrow team this year, pending permission (I need to actually broach the subject first to be fair). Probably struggling to make the pubinar, but I will keep an eye on this thread and do my best  :thumbsup:

I am leading a team of four out of Hertfordshire.  We are going for a Thursday night start. So possibly cross paths with some of your teams overnight. I have an outline route to avoid level crossings this time. No crashing this year.

Still haven't done an arrow.... usually school holidays rule it out... But a 10k would require it... thinks...

Does that mean you're also thinking about a 1000km BRM this year, in which case I can recommend a June ride that takes in Norway, Sweden and Denmark?

 :thumbsup: ColVelo seem to have a team of 5 at the ready.

Just a note for you all before anyone gets too far into planning. I've checked in with Martin, this years organiser and no Thursday night start available this year. Sticking to the published rules of 'Teams may start from Friday 06:00 to Saturday 10:00hrs.'
Enjoying a quiet year
