:D

There were some great bikes in the Peaks, have a look at the roll of honour, but not one Kona. Getting fired up to building the Cinder Cone which I had almost decided to treat as a winter project.

Ed and Khane: How are you fixed for Caythorpe? Is it best to post the details in the Lincolnshire Group section or the general Rides / Events Section ?

It's very laid back. Put on by cycling enthusiasts. Nobody will pass comment, they are just covering themselves incase you hurt yourself and then get back at them for not saying that you should have been wearing a helmet. Such is the twisted society we have to engage with at times. :roll:
Happy to give you a lift if you decide to come. Just finished off your mints :twisted: (or rather Carol has).

think I will have to give it a miss unfortunately - have to save my brownie points for the Wobble now and any evening rides now my light has arrived :twisted:

holy f*** is it bright :shock: :shock: :shock:

only problem is I have ordered (or they have sent me) the wrong plug adaptor from Ebay (separate purchase as I knew it came with American style plug)... :roll:

Can't find a happy way of working the Wobble into my weekend yet. It may come good but it'll be a last minute thing.
I'm going to have to get lights, beginning to feel trapped by the dark.

Caythorpe is not a special ride but the atmosphere and cake were very good. The following weekend Carol is doing the Beachy Head Marathon so I'm looking for a good circular route from Eastbourne. I usually walk the marathon route but this year can't resist riding on the South Downs. Anyone know any good routes?

I'd contact one of the other area groups. Gus (Wu Tangled) does the south downs quite a lot.
