You'll be fine round Gisburn mate.


Gaaar, party for my sisters 50th has just changed to the night before this so I'll try to make it but all will come down to how far I can keep away from the grog :oops:

The Gisburn route has a fair bit of climbing so I wouldn't call it altogether easy. It's a figure of eight circuit with an easier lower loop and a tougher higher loop.
We start near to the crossover so it's pretty good if you need to short-cut back for an early brew or pint.

Probably not, but I heard a rumour that DJ Yella will be at the Dog and Partridge.

Ah, a good way to start the Retrobike new year. So should I build up a bike, or just use an old favourite?
