Bring your Roadie - hopefully the tyres won't just randomly explode.

Kona with road type skinnies on it.

I did think about the LTS again (just for Danno) but if I'm cycling there and back as well, i'd rather be on slicks :)


Thanks mate. I'll try it somewhen else, preferably when there's some nasty downhills...maybe we could take to the big dog to see the difference?

Anyway, I can only bring one bike, cause that's all I've got...so it's the ol Orange P7 again!!!

Maybe :lol: It'd be a bit of a pig trying to get it up that first 2 miles of hill

So what bike is everyone bringing? This ride should be suitable for pretty much anything, so are you bringing the road bike? Commuter hack? Garage queen (if it's dry) Full sus modern bling?

I'm leaving my Pace at home, I took my chopper last year, so I'll ride something different this year.


I shall be bringing my only working bike along, my Kona Lava Dome

I was actually going to ask whether this ride will venture off the tarmac so I could know what tyres to put on. Seeing as BCM has said he is using slicks and I cant be bothered to change my tyres that often, then slicks it is :)

Did the gasket have a funny screwdriver shaped hole in it by any chance?
