I'm sure I said on the last ride I would probably be in. Some plan about getting over the bridge to Brigg and coming down from there on mass.

Though need to double check on the date, lol.

Just cake for me, not a fan of pasta.

Looking forward to this one. What's the ride going to be like? Thinking of putting the khs back to single speed for a bit. Will it cope?

Found that chain tensioner by the way....

Should be a nice mix of singletrack, double track & a little bit of tarmac, no major hills, I didn't use the granny ring at all on the ride so SS will be fine.

Not sure what ratio Pickle used on Sunday, looked like a 32t chainring though

SS will be fine.

I was running a 32 x 18 ratio.
