After some deliberation, I've decided that we might as well start/finish in Hope once more - better the devil we know... ;-)

The route planned will be rather different of course - it'll be a long day, so get your whinging in early...

Just spotted this http://www.v-outdoor.co.uk/news_and_eve ... 0000000059 - are we best avoiding? Or more the merrier?

No worries, we're heading north.... :wink:

I think I'll be trying other establishments in Hope this year - Judith is a tad intimidating for my tastes... :roll: :lol:

I'd better get my finger out and whip onto shape then. Had a tough 19 miler with big moorland climbs yesterday on the SS and was hopeless. That 8 weeks off the bike with the wrist has really set me back.
Should be a good NE contigent though, most of the guys out yesterday are up for it, Gil gets back from a big riding holiday in the states a few days before and might be coming if he's up to it.
Certainly won't be SingleSpeeding it, but going to ride rigid.

How's the route coming on Mr K?

Don't be so hard on yourself,Si,it was more your gear ratio than fitness that was your undoing.... :)
