Sounds great , I am guessing there is a reason for the very early start? Maybe a later time could open it up for a few further away 8)

The only reason we go early is because we all have children waiting at home. So we just get out early, it also avoids the heat .we are having another in a few weeks so will try and sort something :D

Ride rules
No steel, no ride

Highlight for me (apart from watching Karl's lips wrap round a flake at 8am in the morning......) was watching him toast the chap on an all singing carbon pinarello, using a 40 year old steel fixie, complete with brooks mounted, geography teacher stylee, leather satchel hanging off the back!......timeless Karl!......I was dying to go back and point it out to him!.......was there a shiny apple inside it?...... :lol:
