:(

if you can't sell the accommodation will you come? seems a waste if you don't use them if it's paid for, is it a transport thing?

i'll be riding afan or cwmcarn on friday, i have 1 spare seat in the van if you want a lift, i sort of pass you on the way.

Used to stay at Victoria Wells BITD when I went on the Wobble. Do they still have donkeys? I have a picture somewhere of one wearing someones underpants over its ears. Beware of the outdoor pool! It is next to the outside loos and is very cold if you accidently fall in.

i would say that only the really hard people do that milage! the last 2 years i think we have done about 15 miles on the saturday, it's a mass start so that slows things down but also the hills are long and grinding and some of the downhills are technical and slow.

it is a very good route though, i think we are usually in the pub for the apres ride drink around 4 and we start at 10 so that gives you an idea. we don't go belting off, just take a comfortable ride round as i am far from flying at the mo.

i consider this a social ride so i do it at a gentlmans pace :wink:

indeed. I *think* ededwards and I did the long route one year. It was long. And hard. And very wet.

I am happy to chill and take it easy on the short route this year :D
