perfect opportunity for us all to get together again is the keilder marathon 50km race in oct- see the thread.

Two laps so you can bail on the first if it is to much pain and there is a hot meal after in a pub I believe- will be a good day and plenty of "england is rubbish- jocks are sweaty" banter to go around- join me and kaiser and zigzag in a cross border raid :wink:

finally forgot how hard the climb was at inners and itching to go back now.

Good idea Gazz, going to start pestering some of the NE mob into that too- I recon I can get 2 or 3 for it. Also Marky Sinnett from NW Area doing it too guys. Would be good to get a good sized Retro presence there and freak out the modern riders by streamng en-mass into the first corner in the lead :lol:

I'll only consider this Kielder madness if others can be pursuaded who are equally unfit as I. ZigZag,kaiser and Gaz are fighting fit at the moment and are constantly trainning, I am not and thus need some company at the back of the field to even think of taking part. :roll:

Would have to agree with Kaiser, you were fair shifting... I think you were ahead of me for most of the climb, I think I only got past when you stopped to keep folks right and/or chat!

Lift down not a problem... Of course the thought of being stuck in a car with me for 2.5 hours may drive you to the Scooter :lol:

OK I'll do it provided this is a one day thing as I need to be back home afterward on the 10th. The following day, the 11th, is Minimoto racing for DaveDH's birthday and that is something I enjoy and surprisingly i'm good at.

Minimoto is those minaturised GP bikes powered by strimmer engines that you sit almost crosslegged on. I look ridiculous but I get the red mist that Dave gets on a mtb. I caused him to crash twice last time, shutting the door behind me as I cut him up on corners :twisted:

I think I'll need some days off to recover from all this :roll:

What do I need to do to get signed up for this madness :lol:
