I'm still planning on coming up Mark. What are conditions looking like? Should I fit my Soft Conditions Panaracer Dart and bring some water-wings?

No worries fela if you can't make it. Mr Ship is a possible but can only do a few hours, so might change the route to suit him a little more.

Rode it last Sunday on single speed and conditions were ok. So long as the limestone is dry it's comfortably ridable. The DH course was quite demanding as it's a pretty technical bit of riding. Looking forward to it now, might get up early tomorrow and have another recce.

Looks much better! We'll try for the full route, but will gauge the speed of the group as we descend Farleton for Kirby Lonsdale. Would ideally like lunch at Kirby Lonsdale, but if not we can discuss other alternatives.

Going to try and get out this afternoon and test the conditions :D
