So...these meets then. Having never been on one B4, what's the score? Is a leisurely hack through the Peak District or a full-on frenzy of mad downhillers and riders looking for the KOM's jersey for the day?

Just want to know to see if i'll get battered/need to do more training (rides). :?

Sounds like good fun anyway, even if i get dropped on the first hill! :lol:

from my experience of the small meets. Its a social ride with some fast riding in the middle then stop for a chat and let others catch up so nobody gets left behind or lost. :D

sounds just the job...never done a double ride in the day. Are most people doing the 2 rides on saturday or just the afternoon/morning?

Don't think my old pins will stand up to 2 rides in one day....maybe with a few gels and drinks i'll be ok...oh,and a few beers to look forward to afterwards. :lol:

Don't worry Longy. Its a rule of RB meets that you have to stop at every cake shop on route - that and waiting for each of Wu's kit changes/pee stops ensures regular rests :lol:
