So it looks like those of us that did the 2012 ride get the chance to apply a week early for the 2013 ride. If I try really hard I can almost forget just how steep those hills were and how cold and wet I felt at the end. So I'm thinking about doing it again just to have a reason to keep me out on the bike through the winter. Anyone else interested?

Nooooooo! If you're not going I'll have to ride there and back! That's an extra 50+ miles - still I should be nicely warmed up by the time I get there :lol:.

I have ambitious plans to arrive at the start on time :oops:

Ned, can I talk you into changing your mind? Think about the screaming descents! The free pie! The (guilt) free beer...

That wasn't the descent screaming, it was me. :oops: Well it was foggy and braking would've meant I didn't catch up the time lost going uphill so slowly. :D

That run down from the top of Nick O'Pendle towards Clitheroe was terrifying wasn't it? Freezing fog, with trees, dry stone walls, barbed wire fences and in my case, a Mercedes G-Wagen looming out of the murk...
