I forgot to say - Lights are not required on this ride, so long as Steve Kish brings his.

That makes initial sense, but it's exactly what the grues wowbadgers are wanting you to think.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

They were keeping a very low profile last night! However Steve didn't leave any biscuit bait with the milk this time  ;D

Correct, HK and I said gidday to the FNRttS folk on the canal bridge as we were heading off to the 3Down. Sounds like most of you had fun.
Wheel meet again, don't know where, don't know when...

Thanks to all those on the ride last night; you made my first forum ride a really enjoyable experience (until my front mech decided to stop playing).

Riding the trike up Chinnor Hill in the middle ring is an 'interesting' experience.  Some might even say "character building"!  No way that I was going to attempt Smalldean Lane like that!!! :P

But I made it back home OK, though not much before the rest of you reached Tesco.  Ugh!

Will now be sorting out the mechanicals; don't want that again.

Bad luck on the mechanicals, and thanks for meeting up with me and Fab Foodie for sausage and mash at the sausage place beforehand :)
My wild boar and pigeon sausages were awesome, and the apple crumble for desert set me up nicely for the ride. I still managed some egg sarnies in High Wycombe and a friend breakfast in London and yet I seem to weigh 0.5kg less than I did yesterday  ;D

I bought some new gloves, socks and a pink Rapha cap :)
What were we saying at breakfast about those people from Hoxton?

:P

You forgot to mention we saw the space station whizz across the sky at about 4.50am. Apparently there were also 3 shooting stars, but I didn't spot them myself. maybe I should get my eyes  tested, I last went 30 years ago (but had 20/20 vision then).

Pete, nice to meet you for nosh, sorry your ride was cut so short.
Feline, you scary super-whipet audaxer!  Shows what can be achieved on a bike.  Feline, your story would make inspirational reading in a mag, newbie to PBP in 15 months!  Congrats on Smalldean.
oranj, nice to meet another local.
Sounds like you all had a good night, really p*ssed  I couldn't make it, especially as the conditions were so sweet.
Cheers y'all, FF.

Ah! So that's who we saw - good to say Hi - Hope you had as good a ride as we did  :)

Closest we saw to a wowbadger was a wowfox ..... either that or it was the former with his pyjamas in the wash! ;)

TBH, I'm feeling a bit worse for wear today and am off to see the quack again tomorrow.  I must remember not to tell him that my proposed cure of an 85-mile Oxford-London-Staines bike ride didn't seem to work. :(

What we need for the next one is Tigerbiten with his usual stack of fig rolls being handed out at the start.

Looking forward to the 3/6/11 one already. :thumbsup:

I'm sorry I missed this ride but there's no way I'm fit enough to keep the speed up.

I won't be able to do another one untill sometime in August.
The plan is to leave home on the trike towards to end of April and head SW untill I run out of land.
Then turn N untill I turn for home.
Due to my bad knee joints, the plan is to do ~3k mile in ~15 weeks.
After that I'll be fit enough for the ride.

Luck ......... :D

Awesome, looks just like it did on the night! Did you run out of filming time/memory for the tea stop and cafe?

Yes, weak batteries meant the last footage I have is of Beaconsfield.  Next time will be much easier as it will be light for the whole second half.

A question ...

If you make a film and want to use accompanying music I assume you have to ask permission?  If so, of whom and how?

OD, YouTube has a few pages on Copyright. The section How do I get permission to use someone else's song, images or footage in my video? (about a quarter of the way down the page) shows you how unclear it is.

Basically, for music you need permission (ie. a licence) from the songwriter/composer or their copyright agent regarding using the music/song and a synch licence as you will be synchronising the music to your video. If you record a cover of someone else's song or if you want to distribute your movie for money then you have two extra licences to consider.

What sort of music are you looking for? I am just wondering whether it something I can help you with.

YouTube has an odd arrangement where, if you use a copyrighted piece of music, they identify it automatically and the music content owner gets some benefit (or at least you, as the video creator, don't).
