indeed, up for it! day trippin' as not too far.

better get in touch with rich aitch.


I think day-tripping may be best for me too, shame really as I have booked the Friday off to travel there and make it a longer trip. I need to give myself every chance of riding well and a 2 hr drive isn't the best but may be necessary..

i have earmarked this on my calender but i will decide if i'm coming nearer the time. if i do come i'll be making it a roadtrip with a couple of other places on the way there and back.

apologies i can't be more specific at the moment but i do intend to make it, subject to the usual type of excuses . . . weather, fitness or lack of it, money, time off, not to mention the usual lack of enthusiasm for our awful winter!

:)

Is anyone coming up from London or that sort of area?

iShaw has a frame for me and I'd like it to be in the safe hands of a forum member than the courier services.

Mentioned it to mrs today and she seemed keen, so if we can sort childcare we'll come up. She'd be riding her Parkpre Ti (she raced elite for them in '95). Has been heavily and regularly used so not many original parts (unless I raid the scrap in the attic).

However I'm undecided on what to ride. I could bring my old 1990 Kili-Flyer. But my "modern" bike might be of more interest. Will I get flamed for bringing something newish? In my defence, it does feature E-stays and rigid steel, and I guess homebuild counts towards bodge points ;-). What do people think?
