Can anyone offer me a ride on their bike please? :) A fast one, I hope Evil Smile.

A Ratracer would do nicely Wink

Bearing in mind, I'm 5'10", when standing up straight.

Not sure if I can get the Great White up to Curborough..

I'll be riding over in the Quest, you can try that but it wall fall over round the hairpin and if you scratch it you've bought it!
 
Mind you our leggies are of such different lengths us being different 'morphs, you wouldn't fit in it, much better you borrowing something else.
 
Hang on, you live in Boggytar, will this be a virtual you, or a real you? And if the latter is it a flying visit, or permanent?
Ian, not so ex racer but still of dubious capability

Perhaps he's on one of those VR trainers, linked up to a camera on Fardoe's Quest?

The Raptobike will probably shorten to around your leg length if you're stuck for a ride and I'm happy to see you ride it.
 
Currently has Shimano road pedals on it.

Permanent, insofar as the word has meaning.

Thanks for the offers

I'm hoping that I fit into Lee's Quest.

See you all soon.

I'm taking my quest, but as have the footholes glassed over don't really fancy adjusting leg length if I can avoid it, as I'd have to do it again to ride it back home!
it's there if you are completely stuck though.

not sure if I'm racing it yet, will depend on how well it goes around the bottom hairpin!
Very very unlikely to have the new machine before then unfortunately.


I can do 1st aid if no-one is down for it,

you're welcome to stop over at mine if you want Yowie btw, it's a fairly easy 20miles to the circuit.

Thanks Alan and Ian,  the legs is the key issue.  Nobody likes adjusting their recumbent for leg length.  <Ahem> Alan- have you grown some?  Dragging the Ratty bootbackwards isn't usually fun- do you know if it'll go that far back, will the back wheel still turn in the slot?
