Can any of the more 'local' riders give advise as to kit choice.

Tights or 3/4 shorts?
Jacket or waterproof?
Long top or shortsleeve under?
And how long are we actually riding for?

And finally :wink: .......rough time for departing after the ride, just so I can plan my evening arrive home time (if I'll be getting dinner, if I'll see the kids before bed etc)

Cheers all



I'll be riding in long sleeve wick tee zip neck and a waterproof on top, bottoms, prob trousers, depends how cold it is. would wear 3/4's if i had any.
hope this helps, ride is normally 20 miles, with a large group leaving at say 11am i would say Kev's time of 4 pm at the lastest sounds about right.

depends how much we stop. :lol:

It's bloody horrible out there today. I just bailed on riding (and that never happens) and went to the lbs instead. Swimming this eve to make up for it.

I would throughrily recommend... EVERYONE BRING YOUR GORE-TEX. It's proper wet out there today.

But it will still be fun. And hey, ,may even dry up a bit by sunday. It is generally a dry part of teh country.



:D
