Is it single speed friendly?

My geared bike is still away for parts....that's if I do go...I'd probably be on the ss

It's flattish (I hope as I haven't been out for 4 weeks due to back) as it's near Wakefield and for the first time in nearly a year I've also got a choice of bikes , I'm turning up on proper retro this time (2nd time this year !!) as it's a 97 bike (ish).
Stu will be along soon and say he's done it on his SS anyway .

Marin eldridge nearly ready, i'm not.

The most demanding terrain is short and sweet through the woods on the south side of the dam/lake. Beyond that ss may very well be ok, with the odd push up a bank to get to the next trail(we will all be pushing for that). If the ss gearing is 22/32 all will be cool :LOL: .

seriously, the wooded section can be by-passed too, stu will explain that better than me but, i'm sure you can simply follow the lakes' paved edge and meet us further on with no mileage missed out, were talking a couple of hundred yards.
Beyond that there is just a handful of sections that may be taxing to the limited gear bike/crippled rider. The rest is long flat rail trails and other easy going bridal ways.
Any pushing anywhere is short. There is no massive ravines or mountainous terrain.
