Beau Memorial Ride Bristol 2015

7 posts in this topic

If memory serves me there wasn't one last year and maybe even the year before which i think is pretty poor. The last one i went to might have been around 2011 and the turnout was no way near that of previous years. So i thought it best we start getting one organised early so that it has the best chance of getting as many riders involved as possible! Bristol being the location because it was his favourite place to ride i believe? (someone correct me if not).

I can't remember who used to organise them but I'm sure it used to be mid September around Beau's birthday kind of time, not sure on the exact date.

Saturday the 12th and Sunday the 13th seems like the obvious weekend to choose, but its up to debate and whether a bigger turnout could happen on another weekend.

Unfortunately due to Facebook a large amount of the trials community doesn't come on here anymore and won't see this, so if people could spread word maybe make an event or something along the lines of that to get more people involved that would be awesome! Seems a real shame to just forget about it.

Damn I miss that guy so mellow and funny would've been a nice amendment for SRT, RIP you little sweetheart

I would never say no to a Bristol ride, as people found out by the DJ ride the turnouts to group rides are pretty low in numbers these days which needs to change so I am keen. Also remember the ride Ben mentioned above it was a shock to the system to hear the week after what happened. Great opportunity to show your respect, see your friends you don't always get to and have fun. RIP!

Did this happen already or is it gonna be a future date?
I often go Freediving in Chepstow, would be cool to do both in one weekend.

Edit, Silly me thought Sep 12th/13th had been and gone lol.

I'd be up for coming along on the DMR to take a few photos, but I can't do 12th or 13th of September.

Was a good ride today, shame the turnout was so poor

Hopefully tomorrows should be better, turns out I've got an extra assignment for uni to do so i can't even make it both days which sucks.

Trials just isn't the same as it once was...
