let me rephrase that - any suitable bikes?

If not you can borrow one of mine. I have a remarkable number of working bikes at the moment. Very unusual!

this is all assuming you get clearance of course ;)

the only potentially suitable one at the mo is my 98 hardrock. would need a tyre change if its loose pack trail etc...

and of course it all hinges on getting permission :)

where is whiteways?
is there a train station nearby the meeting point?
what time could i expect to be returning home by?
:)

I'll either be on Race Kings or some silly sized completely unsuitable Bontrager 2.35's

Whiteways is here Nearest station is Amberley, though it looks like it's an hour and a half from Hove. Not much better to Arundel either...possibly an easier cycle from Amberley though

not sure when we'd be finished...around lunchtime-ish i'd guess (read 2pm :lol:) I've got a mate crashing at mine, so i can't be too late or he'll start breaking things

Twain, if you can get to Arundel, I can give you a lift up the hill, whilst max is deep in Chris's man cave :roll:
