The route I did today was not the route we are doing for this ride - well only one section was.

The route planned I have fully ridden retro , rigid and single speed and will be very similar to the ride at Easter which you and Matt liked

Panic not everyone

Looking good for this, hoping to have a little NW raiding posse to share the fuel bill ... which will be nearly thrice what I paid for the bike I'm probably bringing! :lol:

Excellant - have you managed to remove all of the uphill bits? (not so keen on those!)

Managed to get myself into the position of the only serviceable British Steel bike is a 23" Raleigh Avanti :roll: must stop tinkering with stuff.....

Dave are you on the Roberts?
