Looking forward to this one now. Not had a decent spin out for weeks. Still undecided what steed to bring... FAT, Yo, Schwinn, FAT, Yo, Schwinn.....Grrrrr!

Just to recap- who are we waiting for in Pickering for breakfast??

Me, Sith, Andy B and Sinnett for sure. Who else was is coming?

Same here, need to get out on the bike or I'll lose what little skill I had, can't lose any stamina as I have bugger all anyway ;)

Suntan lotion, or raincoat? BBC weather suggested sun. Gonna be soggy though. Should be OK I have invested in a real-shop-taxed new sticky tyre. 8)

Is there a specific area/place we are searching for? Map sends us to the pickering bottom part of the NY moors. Sure it will make sense along the way..

I've got a habit of cursing weather wherever I turn up, so I'd come prepared for anything! ;)

I thought you were coming with Marky Sinnett?? he knows the way. If its breakfast meeting see drivell above, if its Dalby- head to Thornton-le-Dale and follow signs for Dalby and Whitby. Dalby Forest drive is about 2 miles on the Right. Go through the toll booth and continue to the car park at Low Dalby. We should be there about 9:30ish.

Going to have a look at meto for the weather now. hope its warm and sunny!

Yep, reanimation is with me, just concentrate on getting us back on the motorway network Mark from Todmorden. Will see you early doors tomorrow.

Weather forecast is good so I believe, but who cares will be a good laugh whatever the weather.

Will be on the alpinestars, but sadly in XTR trim and not DX as my brake levers ain't turned up :( . Will be boasting some suspension though in the form of Manitou 2's.

See you all tomorrow.

We must compare the weights of the Klunker and the alpinestars, might not be so much in it. I've had many offers since I bought it from deep sea fisherman in need of anchors.
