I'll be a late arrival at the field, and possibly too late for the pub tonight..picking up a mate in Oxford around 4:30 then have rush hour fun to fight through.

The rest of the team should be there around 3pm ish to make base camp.

So I wonder what are the chances of getting our 9 man tent erected in 60mph gusts :P

Good luck all....its gonna be an experience! :twisted:

Everything packed, including the singlespeed that is clearly going to cause much pain, although at least I don't have to worry about my gears jamming with mud! :D

I'll be the short guy with a burgandy 'Therapy?' T shirt on in the pub tonight, probably not too far away from Orange71 and a guy who looks like a Archeologist


And me! Except I might well be there before you lot. Red "Natural Born Mountain Biker" Rox T-shirt.
SS cru in da house innit! :lol:

Also contemplating sleeping in the car - the camping field was pretty damn wet last year, & the weather was nowt compared to this!

Surely not?! Can't see it taking you more than 3 hours, let alone 6...

Although limited time spent in the pub tonight would probably be a very good idea...

I think we all know it's going to be a little damp underfoot, but it might not be raining for the whole ride at least! :lol:

I'm afraid I've succumbed to the attraction of a 45 mile Forest of Dean loop instead tomorrow as clearance for an overnight in Llanwrytd was not forthcoming but I will be at The Volunteer in Hereford for Sunday lunch for those that can make it.

Anyway, best of luck to all, looks like even if it is wet (Wales in mid November? Surely not?) it will be much milder than in the past two years (when it was very wet also).
