:P YA BUNCH OF PIKING WOOSES :P

Velo here, back from the frozen wasteland and still alive despite mother natures best efforts.

A good call to cancel it but I was already committed to the venture and had limited internet access so was none the wiser until Fluffy Chicken appeared :D

It was unrideable off road around Coniston and it was pretty well unrideable on any road a snow plough had not visited, pretty though !

Unfortunately if you reschedule, I'll miss it as its a major expedition for me without a motor and I cant afford to do it again this year.

I will be on the Lake District Road bike run though, cheers :wink:

My hero Velo :mrgreen: Fingers crossed you might be able to get a lift down for the rerun...

6/7th isn't great for me, weekend after would be better*





















*yes, it is all about me 8)

I can't do the 6th. Many of the weekends after are ok.
It'll suck if I can't make the rerun as I can't make a lot of this years rides with more being on a Sunday.

Sorry should have updated.

Off for the time being. The ride organisers, myself included, haven't got very good availability during April it seems.
Plus the fact that the continuing cold weather means that there will still be a fair bit of snow left on parts of the route.

We shall look to put on a non series ride around the route at some point later this year.
A bit disappointing I know, but we'll get there eventually.

Roll on the Long Mynd...
