So just 10 days remain before the big one, Mountain Mayhem 2010. Many members of the NW&NWA are making the journey to Eastnor Castle Deer Park
to camp, drink, socialise, heckle and ride in a retro manner. So please post up your plans, tips and aspirations for the weekend.
Myself and mr_ship are planning to travel down in a packed car on the Friday morning, to be on the camp site ready for the traditional RB sighter lap that afternoon. I'd recommend arriving in time for this as its a great opportunity to put names to faces of fellow Retrobikers and the banter sets the tone for the weekend.
My tips for those new to Mayhem would be to bring as much cycling clothing as you can, bring a towel and flip flops for the showers, bring beer and barbeque food for Friday night, a bin bag for your rubbish, lights for your night lap(s) and most importantly a sense of humour.
As far as my aspirations for the weekend go, if I enjoy this years Mayhem half as much as last year i'll be happy with that. I'd also like to manage a sub 1 hour lap, if track layout and weather permit. Most important, everyone enjoys the riding and goes home in one piece.
