    OK – Listen in folks.

    If the weather is good and dry for a while, we will look to use the Caerphilly Pump Track again on the 18th. If it is not, then we will use Parc Penallta – http://your.caerphilly.gov.uk/countryside/parks/parc-penallta. RVP for Penallta will be the top car park off Penallta Road.

    Contact me (Keri) on the day to confirm venue for the evening.

    Weather looks fair for tomorrow so see you all at Caerphilly. Kids need helmet and water.

    Charlie gutted.. Had to go to van twice already since last month’s session!

  5. Hoping to be there, have to see how Cerys is she is on antibiotics at the moment.

    Incredible result. Utmost respect to you Rich. Great write up.

  9. Awesome effort rich FairPlay!

    This has been postponed on the 29th because of the poor weather forecast. Please look out for update.

  11. Profile photo of Wearny Wearny says:

    Keri, can you post a link to the images so we can have a closer look. Got some ideas but not sure if they are already detailed. Cheers.

  12. Profile photo of Keri Jones Keri Jones says:

    Come on guys. Get the thinking caps on, no matter how crazy your ideas might be!!

  13. Profile photo of Kelly Powell Kelly Powell says:

    I’d like to see chain rings on there somewhere.

    Loved the first top second design I have grown to like defo need to keep the dragons tail ! Perhaps have our names or nick names on top , a lot depends on sponsors are we putting a ” crown ” on there

  17. Profile photo of Keri Jones Keri Jones says:

    Dragon tails a defo Tony. Nick names is complex but I can look into it. Sponsors is tricky. Who deserves a place on such a prestigious club top?

  18. Profile photo of Matt Lewis Matt Lewis says:

    Im in. Really looking forward to this one. Missed the last time not going missing it again

  19. Hoping to make this as well. Great route and highly recommend it πŸ™‚

  20. Profile photo of Gareth Gibbs Gareth Gibbs says:

    Hoping to be able to make this one too

  21. Profile photo of Wearny Wearny says:

    I like TJ’s suggestion of Nicknames. Does the club moto of “ride safe, ride often” appear anywhere? And to back up Twiglets comment, there is little I can remember on the tops that shows we are a MTB club – so chain rings or MTB silhouettes’s could be an idea? What about putting the contour lines of Machen / our club riding areas on them, like you see on Raceface Atlas stuff?

  22. Profile photo of Wearny Wearny says:

    How does this compare to Richy Turners Breacon Ride? Technicality / experience / stamina???

  23. Profile photo of Dom Dom says:

    Should be able to make this one. Gutted I missed the last one so I’m looking forward to it.

  24. Profile photo of ian morgan ian morgan says:

    Im definitely up for this. Wanted to do this for years.

  25. Wearny its all rideable your more than caperble of doing it your guides are exceptional thetrails and views are stunnimg you eillnever forget this one
    or ad nicky would say tahe ups where easy the downs where good
    this is the best mtb ride I have fine bar none

  26. Profile photo of brad brad says:

    Hope to make this one ! Sounds like a great ride !

  27. http://www.pinkbike.com/video/372959/
    awesome ride with great guides don’t miss it

    • Profile photo of ian morgan ian morgan says:

      Please forgive Nev’s grammar on the previous posts. He was probably under the influence of pain killing substances;).
      Looking forward to this one. I know that this will be well run as the guides from Trailspotting are fantastic.

  28. These ideas are great! Love TJ’s idea of names/nicknames, and some more MTB related designs like the chain rings Kel suggested. And the silhouette of Machne/Wyllie range sounds awesome, could put some sort of design inside the silhouette too, a collage of various beers and ciders perhaps?

    • Profile photo of ian morgan ian morgan says:

      I’d like to see how the HWU logo off this shirt would look like on the newer design.
      Could the names be printed on at Darren Morgans or DT later. Then people can put on whatever they like at they can then pay individually. Worth looking into
      Got to be careful that we are not copying other shirts eg SWMTB or grannies ring etc.
      Can we have them in PINK πŸ˜‰

  53. Profile photo of Joe Hickman Joe Hickman says:

    Sounds good, wouldn’t mind trying out the e-bikes!

  54. Profile photo of Jim Jim says:

    If it’s not too late, put me down, too, Keri!

  55. Chain rings, clichΓ©.
    Vee dub, chavtastic
    Dragon, over done i feel
    I love the 4th Jersey but it seems a little too similar to the original (which I love)
    The 5th is brilliant, the best design I feel we’ve had.
    Big thanks to Jamie for the sterling work, didn’t mean to dismiss any of your work fella, just giving my honest critique

  56. Profile photo of Dom Dom says:

    Dragon on front with tail and wesh flag on rear.
    No chainrings!!!

  57. Profile photo of Gary mo Gary mo says:

    I think the glc top is a grower keri! I think would look better with logo on sleeves rather than wording on there. The dragon design cool. I agree with dom , no chainrings!

    Not as keen on the designs with white on them.. Maybe white could be reserved for a road bike specific version?!

  58. I like the 4th one. There’s alot of white on thay left sleeve, how about making it red?

  59. Firstly I’d like to say a big thanks to Jamie for the designs. Cracking job.

    No1: Chainrings – bit of a cliche but good effort
    No 2: just say no
    No3: like the Dragon head on front / tail on back idea. Think dragons head could be worked on
    No 4: Classic, like original – keep it old school. Also keep it in black
    No 5: looks like a pointy cock.

    Only my opinions. But only 2 I’d even consider buying

  60. Profile photo of Kelly Powell Kelly Powell says:

    Chain rings!!!!!!!! Haha just kidding. I prefer number 4 out of all of them.

  61. Profile photo of Gav Gav says:

    1. No
    2. Like this, but lose the chain and put the VW in the middle.
    3. like this but needs some black.
    4. Looks like a subway uniform, maybe change the white arm to black?
    5. Like this but why have the tail on the front? also needs a black arm instead of white.
    Conclusion… less white, more black imho. πŸ™‚

  62. 3rd across is by far the best, clean, simple and sharp! Others are so clustered! GLC makes me wanna spew, chainring just makes me think Castle Bikes and the others look similar to previous Jerseys.

  63. Profile photo of Gareth Gibbs Gareth Gibbs says:

    1. Best chainrings I’ve seen on a shirt but still a no
    2. Lose the chain and straighten the VW and it looks much better
    3. Like this design a lot. Agree that dragons are a bit clichΓ©d but this one makes you look twice
    4. Great looking design but think the white arm should be replaced with red
    5. Think this would look great as the back print on the dragon shirt

  64. Same as other comments really 3 and 4 with more black on sleeve would be my opinion.difficult to please everyone.

  65. Profile photo of Jim Jim says:

    Number 3 or Number 5, but in both cases, turn the big blocks of yellow background (sleeve/chest respectively) into black.

    I also like number 4, but again, would want a solid black background so the logo edges don’t get “lost” in all the confusion…

  66. Profile photo of brad brad says:

    i proper loves design number 2
    otherwise number 4 with right hand sleeve in black

  67. Profile photo of Andy Lewis Andy Lewis says:

    Agree with most of the others, #4 & #5 but change the white sleeve for red, black or yellow

  68. Me and tom will be there nev

  104. Hi Nev,
    No problem glad you are coming over again this year, the main issue is
    camping now I know you boys are coming Ill block book you some space.
    Let me know categories etc when you can.
    Cheers
    Paul

  105. Can we try and get numbers together at next meeting so we can let them know as you know if you have been before space is tight and they try to accomadate us with a good spot next to trail with space for gazebo
    So let’s get it sorted and get numbers in
    Keri has said the club will kindly pay the camping for us so it’s just your entry fee for your category

  106. Keri please can you order me a xl short sleeve top
    Cheers fella

    Looking forward to this

  116. Profile photo of Kelly Powell Kelly Powell says:

    I did mention it at the meeting but i thought id put it on here too. Due to not a great amount of parking space up there it may be worth seeing if we can get some vw vans to take bikes and gear up and then fill a few cars with people.

  117. nant on the sunday meet at nant for 10.30 give the guys who want to travle up time to travle up and join us

  118. Change of plan, we are now riding on Saturday from Nant for 10.30
