That's me screwed then, was rather hoping it was a weekend of camping and (camp) banter.

Blimey, didn't think SSEC was that popular that we'd need to compete to get in, oh well here hoping :D

Oi, 'The Guide' you will now be beaten and/or thrown out, its not a race its a competetive ride out :lol:

Secondly there's no mountains in the Forest of Dean.

Thirdly any bike ridden off road classes as a mtb in the broadest sense of the word. I got around SSUK08 on a converted Triumph Tempest racer........................eventually :lol:

Just had a wee look at the Dinosaur bikes site who are supporting this race. Cant see 650B wheels taking off for a while when a tyre costs over £47 each :shock: Best stick with the Brit 650A tyre at a tenner each, admittedly thats the 26x1&3/8th" classic roadster tyre but seen in knobbly form on bicycle speedway :lol:

I should show up with an SS roadster with speedway tyres and park it meaningfully beside the Dinosaur bikes stand :twisted:
