Daj,

Can you add 1 to list 8)

I have talked an old riding mate I met at MM10 who has secretly had the Retro bug but avoided it...................... well until he bumped into me after 10+ years and saw us lot and our steeds 8)

He has signed up already as Lookback and will be digging out his old bike too, I will bring him with me so there will be no escape for him :lol:

Cheers

GM

Would this be suitable for my 1st event?
Whats involved as regards mileage / hours in saddle /cost etc?
I'm getting there but still nowhere near my early 90s fighting weight!

Having covered the route today I have only just cleaned the happy dust off my teeth (because I was grinning so much). The trails are riding brilliantly and conditions are just about perfect plus we saw only a couple of other riders during the whole ride.

I've updated the original post with some practical details but for those who want a few specifics, we'll start off on the SSEC10 then deviate to include some FoD classic named sections of singletrack (including the Descent of Almost Certain Death) before a visit to the pub for lunch/liquid fast acting nerve calmer. Post lunch is some stunning riding on fast, flat singletrack then a few optional loops including the aptly named Followthrough.

It's going to be good....
