Sadly I'm dipping out. Had a go at the weekend. I managed 17m and half a dozen gates. I think the repeated lifting combined with the distance will be too much. I don't want to be a millstone or a flounce so doing the decent thing.

I prepped the zaskar especially with light fat tyres and all that.

Hope you all have a great time.




you'd have survived, theres not as many gates as people will have you think and we're all here to do the lifting.

Definitely still up for it. Forecast is quite good too. LGF, can you PM your address please? I've done the Gates ride once before, but definitely can't remember where you live.

Regards

Marge

Don't forget to apply high factor sun cream, sun burn is not fun. Not too sure if I will make it in the morning, have to see Jake off with his respite carer first but will try. If I don't have fun and keep smiling, it's only 20 miles to the pub.
