Looks like we're in for some good, clean, dirty fun if those photos are anything to go by.

Following a couple of queries, I can confirm that there will be some food for all riders (courtesy of a2Zest Catering and Retrobike) but there is also food available at the trail centre/cafe or if you have a hearty appetite you may want to bring a sandwich or similar.

Now, where did I put those Spikes......

Honestly not a problem mate, thank you for the original offer.

Got some work to do/favours to earn with Mrs LMTTM but might be able to wangle the car :?

If I make it it will be on a modern steed ....... but its okay as I will ride at the back :oops: :oops: :oops:

Those pics may just have forced a change of plan on the bike front! Not sure U-brakes will cope with that :lol:

I'll be using 'flatties' and a pair of boots - SPD's won't cope with that!

Aiming to be there :)

Since Thetford the Kona has had

XTR chainset to replace LX with worn middle ring (I need a middle ring for that) also XT SPD's rather than DX SPD's

New rear mech hanger and XT mech, inner and outer cables to replace failed LX mech & hanger that failed on a night ride after Thetford. Maybe a new chain and cassette if it arrives in time.

Pace medium elastomer kit to sort out saggy forks (to be fitted)

Looking at Iwasgoodonce's pictures I can see a fair amount of de-NOS-ing is going to be taking place. The only bit that worries me about riding my more sparkly bikes in mud is the decals can get ruined in one ride.

After ... to be revieled
