The weather forecast is dry up to Sunday so perhaps some of this might drain off and dry out? Regular Cannock 'users' might know?

I went out yesterday on the SS and found it not to bad an experience using 36 x 18. Steady climbs are OK but I couldn't handle ones with sharp gradient changes and with 'gnarly' bits in them which with gears you would change down and pedal over. Saying that, it's nice occasionally when concentrating on a tricky bit not to have to worry about gearing. And a lot easier to clean the bike after!

I'm going to ride without SPD's or toeclips using my old Axo boots - so getting off for a nice walk won't be a problem!

Taking plenty of clean dry clothes to change into afterwards.

Merry Christmas everyone!

I'm going to try and make this ride and make it a hat-ric of rides (retrobike meets and in total). I reckon I'll be on the rebuilt '88 Kili Flier.

Right!

Almost there!


Chase will be fine. Mud wont be a problem. Will be a great ride.

There is still an early doors ride for those that want. Main ride will be slower and more sociable. Too much Turkey and Port for me I'm afraid..

See you all there!!!


Andy :)
