I think a full weekend will be self-limiting in terms of numbers :)

Hi Jim,

This is the gradient profile http://www.bikedowns.co.uk/Profile%20All.htm :shock:

It's not going to be a race, and i'm a moderate smoker (with a very strong will to give up). What you have to ask yourself is- Can I ride 50 miles two days running with a lot of stiff climbs? If not, get riding your bike more. Can you commute by bike? I'm doing 30 miles a day (7days a week for the last 5 weeks, but thats another story) and i'm at the same weight I was when I was racing 14 years ago. I say go for it!

Marcus

You hit the nail on the head there Jim. You need to ENJOY IT! :lol:

This is something I've been wanting to give a go for a while aswell, I can provide a bike workshop/storage for the night which you could even kip in if needed in Amberley I'll prob nip home and be back in morning. Will keep an eye on the post after Christmas and we can go from there. I'll get the first beer in the Jon as will def be on "modern shit"
