no worries mate I'm like you, a lover not a fighter and I want some clockwork decals from him, so need to keep him sweet- even If I knew the distance involved I could do a few similar runs to get my head round the concept- I am going to get some charity sponsership for the event so will need to finish it- that's my incentive anyway, that and a chance to finally defeat Kaisers big ring hoodoo (slightly smaller big ring as this is SS :wink: )

The way to defeat Kaisers Big Ring is to summon it's evil spirit with a celtic chant* and channel it through your legs- it worked for me last weekend. There are side effects though- I have sprouted a strange beard!

Si

* I don't know any Celtic chants so I just sang Andy Stewart's 'Donald wheres me troosers' in a rather poor Glaswegian accent.

:? I did fell a little vacuous round the ring last week???, so it was you stealing my thunder :twisted: getting too close to the big rings power will induce sporadic facial hair, thus the high proportion of MacRetro foliage. :lol:

Sorry guys, can't make Thrunton tonight. Mr Builder is returning to put down the kitchen floor in the morning (9 weeks after he started it :roll: ) so whilst you enjoy yourselves I will be humping furniture and white goods around the place.

Have fun

Si

Sorry about that matey, but I don't want any excuse for that bleeding builder to not get on with the floor in the morning. Also got to go to the public consulation for Morpeth's flood plans this evening (which I have only just found out about). Sodding enviroment agency want to build a 15 foot banking in my back garden- cutting it in half and ruining our view of the river (and knocking a huge amount off the value of our house too probably) :evil:

Anyway- next months day ride is up on a separate thread. See here....
