Could be tempted by this one - pre '90 might be tricky though.
Choice of two Orange - '92 AluO or '98 O2

'92 - you know you want to.

I'll be on a '94, with pre-1990 vintage legs.

Looks like I have a pass signed :D

Just to prepare me, what are the hills around there like? are they short and sharp, long and steady, or long and sharp? I'm not used to hills you see :oops:

If anyone from up this way wants a lift down there, I have a spare roof rack space.

AR -cool-c, I've the given a brief description on my post above as I've been asked to lead the ride. Yes, there are hills a plenty, mainly short, sharp with the exception of two quite long brutes! If people can let me know what they want then I can tailor the route - speak up or it's 'Woodsman's style' :wink: :)
