I can bring my pocket Pentax and The RC will have his I-phone, which in his hands takes excellent pictures.

As for what bikes; I expect each and every one of you to be on a hand made steel British bike.


But then, he who expects nothing is seldom disappointed, so I'll settle for a dry day and a bunch of folks on bikes.

What are ground conditions like? It's been wet on and off since Sunday evening here, so I'm thinking I can leave the TrailRakers on the Roberts.


Thats Great Neil ,

As for conditions, yesterday was nice dry (fast ) conditions, however last night it has chucked it down so will probably wet,will head out tomorrow for a quick spin and check as it will be the last chance i get until Sunday

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