Glad you got some miles in ken. I do remember a good chippy in sunderland centre-ish. just over that green iron bridge, queen elizabeth bridge, iirc) about half a mile down that road there was a chippy on the corner, on the left as though you are leaving the centre. going back 8 years or so though :) Not sure how close to the trail you would be from there though, or if it opens at lunch time.

Well I had a cracking weekend , got out Fri aft , Sat , Sun and even Mon on the bike , I've decided I like the Genesis frame so will be keeping it , the weather was wonderful but cold , not too much mud (Boltby Woods was the only really claggy bit ) the rest was either bone dry or covered in snow, did around 60+ miles , the Panini's at the little shop in Hawnby are still spot on (Steak, stilton and red onion), walking from the bottom of the valley up to top of Newgate Bank was a bit of a slog but all in allmade for a good ride.
Thanks to Vern for the offer of joining him but the logistics of getting there (wife n dogs had to be considered) and I'll be honest and say what he had planned would have been a bit much for me and I'd have probably just slowed them down. I'll try and resize my phone pics later and stick them up but for the mo they're on my farcebook page.
