Excellent -had just been waiting for confirmation before we signed up... :P :lol:

Do you have those goodies for me? Going to pick up the wheels today and then the (cheapass) resurrection can begin... :D Don't suppose you're in need of owt I might be able to help with? Just as thanks :wink:


Camping in the middle of the Peaks, and you were expecting 'good honest Yorkshire tightwad' prices? Ha! Did have a nice little corner of the place to ourselves last year, well away from the Talbotdwellers 8) Didn't get any complaints, even when I was sat outside sometime after midnight enjoying an alfresco curry and a last pint or two...

Are all the better halves coming again this year too? Made for a differentbutnice atmosphere last year :)

Rather sorry to not be able to make this this year. For those wondering, it is really rather a splendid day out.

Have fun guys. I'll look forward to the aftermath thread.

:D

Ah, Pete; I have been busy.
I've e-mailed Pindale camping ground and the YHA camping barn in the Vale of Edale about accommadation as they are both about half the price of that one in Hope.
If they're booked out I'll travel down for the day instead.

Is it really that bad?! Normally I'd be totally in agreement (just remembered it was me saying the same last year!) but if there's a few us camped together within a short roll of the start, the pub and the takeaways (I'm trying hard not mention Spence...) it's got to be worth a few pennies extra, just this once, surely! :wink:

You are a total gent 8)

Kiran's coming, not sure on the other ladies yet, I'll ask Gav & Martin later. Should be in good time, as always... :roll:

Anything original that you might still have would be great (seatpost?), except the evil saddle, but I don't think I'm actually stuck for anything... The wheels I have are a bit modern I'm afraid, but they'll do the job for now and shouldn't look too terrible I hope.

Was more hoping I could bring a few bits for you, in appreciation! :D

Hopefully riding over for the day from Sheffield. probably Rigid and singlespeed again, although it may be on an Orange C16r that fits me rather than a Giant Cadex that's about 3 inches too small...

I might even try to do the whole ride this time rather than just meeting you all at the penny pot cafe.

Hopefully making a day of it and doing the quiz too - the quiz is on right? Might even be able to supply some good mystery objects.

If I'm not working I'll be there with a +1

This year it's my +1 who'll be on a modern bike as I do actually have a retro(ish) bike that works ;)
