Oh cock. Was hoping to get down for this one. Unfortunately while you lot have the time of your lives on sun speckled singletrack i'm going to be stuck at a motor race in France, quaffing Champagne, eating fine food, surrounded by racers and super models and generally overdosing on some of the finest sports racers ever built. If that wasn't bad enough i then have to drive a classic Alfa all the way down to Lake Garda and back for the centenary.

Spare a thought for me will you :cry:


how will you cope?

Did you not know? He's allergic to all but the most expensive Champagne - brings him out in a rash.

there is a campsite with zero facilities but 3 pubs right in the village - as long as you have your 'trail' tyres, it'll hunky dory. I can put together a 40 mile monster or continue with the original ride.

Unfortunately winter put a bit of a stop on it all. Work has got in the way and also apathy.

I've got a wicked ride planned if you like steam trains.... :wink:

NVR sounds like a great idea. Where are the AEC's & deputy dawgs when you need them?

I am away from Saturday for a couple of weeks (drinking cold beer in the sunshine by a swimming pool) :wink:

Will give CK a kick to get things moving. He has one good hand so can still type.

The original dates for the Alconbury Midnight Growlers are 10th & 11th July - these are posted on the RB calendar. Have sent CK a brief what needs to be done. Basically keep it as simple as possible, name a place & time to meet - no fannying around asking which date is best.
