Steve, how'd you get on mate?


Dunno when the results come out but I was 10 mins slower than when I did it 2 years ago with the same gearing. I was a bit slow off the mark as I had a call of nature just 5 mins before the start, when I got back to the start line I was way back, must've took 5 minutes to get across the line! :)

There was a bit of wind left over from yesterday that took it's toll across the open space of the old aerodrome but other than that it was a grand ride. I had the pleasure of meeting Perry from this board after the event, nice guy. 8)

My computer said I took 2 hrs 26 min for 32 miles. 36:16 gearing on the Moots ss.

Well the brigg collective went for a ride this morning. I got a text from mike above last night saying he was thinking of selling his bike to buy a toy car. I was having none of that so we arranged a ride! We did a few miles round the locale and i've added a new track to my ride bank. It was great to be out on a couple of old bikes. Not ridden with someone else for ages. Got back and had a brew and spent an hour swapping parts between each other. All in all a grand morning.

Ooops - how rude :shock: Will read previous posts properly next time. I will re-phrase my previous post to:
Hopefully Mr Pickle will be well for this coming weekend as I would be up for a jaunt.
If not - then if anyone wants to tag on with me for a Wolds bimble from Donington on Bain they would be more than welcome.

Sorry Mr Pickle - will put specs on next time to see that you had already offered to organise a ride.
