I can assure anyone who thinks that they are too unfit and slow to come along to ride with us, that Sidewinder will be with us to set the pace. :wink:

So bring your camping gear and food for 2 days :lol: :lol:

Without trying to be diplomatic, but just how slow are you sidewinder? I'm only asking because i may bring other riders too if the pace is casual(ish)

The route NWA route has a good number of short-cuts and options for those who at any point feel that they have legs like jelly or lungs like a Victorian chimney sweep. (Or if Sidewinder's bike breaks)

The pace will be relaxed anyway, but as I say there are other easily navigable options too.

I'm wary when you say "relaxed", that Mac forest run nearly killed me, we got back 15minutes earlier than planned despite Ed having those mechanicals and setting off late :roll:
Having moaned out loud now I will say my pace has increased quite a bit since.
