Looking forward to meeting everybody tomorrow. Bit apprehensive about keeping up.
I'll bring some clear patches.


don't worry about speed - I'm bringing a mate who's injured currently (torn calf muscle) so he won't be fast (he's not retro either :shock: ) - and others here have said they won't be going too quick either :D

I am also looking forward to seeing a few new faces tomorrow. :D

I am not feeling very fit at the moment, so if I lag behind all the time then I think that will be my excuse :oops: :lol: :oops:

What's everyone doing foodwise ? Is it taking sandwiches or are we all crashing at the cafe ?

We are hoping to get there for about 9.30 ish :wink:

I'm pleased someone else has brought up the subject of pace as i'm about 5 stone overweight and have the pace to match! My mate is also coming with his mrs and dog which is attached to his bike!i think they are just meeting me there rather than riding with us but they might set off with us. Its entertaining watching the dog drag him along!

Well gentlemen, Just want to say what a great day I had today, excellent company, good riding and the pain is fading with my first beer :wink:

I'll put the video on as a new post in the next few days once I've edited it.

We must do this again sometime!
