.... and I’ll make sure the cake stop is actually open. :)

Have had a rough plan for a re-run ever since the last one, taking in the trails we missed last time round.
Will be less ambitious with the mileage this time. Ish

What's the frame Tricky? The rear dropouts look interesting.

Ah so they do! They are Marin’s finest investment cast dropouts as they like to call them.

I do recall Clubby suggesting a second visit to his turf for another gravel run. He does have the advantage of being reasonably central for much of us travelling to a meet.
If your listening Clubby another gravel meet would be good :wink:

And it turns out I have a heap of 20" tubes in case anyone gets a puncture... :)

I'm up for a 20" gravel ride. Bet we could drag Velo out for that. :)

Funnily enough I reckon my Bickerton could be made gravel ready and my Dahon Classic already is and it has 16" wheels. Have done gravelesque stuff on a Brompton in past as well :-)

Sorry to hear about your issues Velo. I hope the clouds eventually lift.

I would be up for a gravel ride depending on my shifts as usual
