I've just brought some Cree lights from eBay super bright and rechargeable :) looks like a good course (apart from the climbs) but for every climb there is a downhill :)

This perhaps isn't the kindest track to do my first 24 hour solo race! How many times was the word 'climb' used :shock:

Must buy a 34t cassette for the Kona....

I'm due to do my first lap at about 2.00am :shock:

Looks like I'll need plenty of light.

Neil you are a complete nerd and really need to get a life :lol:

Well, someone had to decide what order everyone is not going to ride in, as they're too pissed or have disappeared off into the woods somewhere :roll:
