The landlady said they have something on, hence the full booking and they don't take single bookings for the lodge. Think i'll try my luck with the lodge on the day.

As for which ride I was planning on having the Rocky Mountain ready, which it should be, but i'm going to ride the alpinestars instead and save the Rocky for the Christmas meet. The alpinestars was built for rides like these and i'm smitten with it at the moment.

Looking forward to this one.

[quote="ededwards"]Three weeks to the day we'll be easing aching bones with some foaming ale - excitement is building (here at any rate!).

Actually Ed, I'm not sure that excitement is the word- more fear and trepidation from this quarter - but I'm still coming as long as the Rockhopper behaves itself! - and I hope it's true that no one gets left behind.....

Cheers

The motto is "never leave a man (or woman) behind in the field".

Seriously, no one will get left behind, it really won't be that sort of ride.

There's a nice little trail here, Some tight corners and goes downhill

Lat : 51°46'13.46"N
lon : 2°35'16.05"W

Its not an exact location but I think I'm pretty spot on, Used to live about a mile up the road.

Theres also another section here, Again a rough location

Lat : 51°45'59.56"N
Lon : 2°34'46.84"W
