10hr round trip via Peterpoddys house (my brother) - sounds like it's going to be good!

I did the final recce yesterday and it's drying out real nice - fingers crossed the weather holds eh!

I doubt whether we'll get mixed up with the Evans lot other than on the fireroads or BKB possibly - they won't know the area we're heading to!! :wink:

Expect singletrack and lots of it! :)

i'm committed to things up here on that day so wont be there but, was pleasantly surprised at the rolling singletrack down there. very good for all fitness/skill levels. last year was ace!

weather looks good too. 20 degrees c and light wind.

the lunch stop pub was accommodating too since we stormed the beer garden. nice bbq chicken. eh? no lip-licking emoticon!

enjoy folks.

I will last up until the last 100 yards like last time on this ride.

I will be on pure retro this time and no Di2 electronics in sight.

Thanks andy
