Max and I have checked this route especially for damage limitation - he rode his Shockabilly and his Buck Shaver, I rode my Ibis and Alpinestars without any scars... I don't think you need to be too paranoid about your bikes on this particular run - unless they're Kleins or you normally only run them on carpet :roll: :lol:

There are line options throughout the route where there are rocks - you just have to steer the right course and not fall off!

I'll probably bring the Litespeed. Although if I have time to sort the Yo by Friday I may bring that.

Think you can add one more to the list. James W is coming along on saturday.



Since this is a Dad's Army themed ride who is who?

Jezza must be Pike

Other than that...

Max = Frazer
