Not bad guesses Blue Hills but I'm sworn to secrecy about the incident involving the bilingual, cross dressing giraffe, the disgraced fomer Tory minister and the medicine ball.thanks for this post - i was starting to worry, after an extended radio silence, that you had all come to grief after some micro-climate hit on the bolton-blackburn moors, the sad remnants of your merry band only to be discovered after the snows had receded from a snow pole many seasons hence. Or that there had been an as yet unreported, pending police enquiries, incident in an Irish Sea spoons.
(from a poster who had maybe more than was wise in two local fine spoons the day before on a challenging ride)
I've just twigged who you are Pumpkin TR. Damn forum name changes.Just be aware that bailing out can mean a long walk or a long wait at a station or an expensive taxi ride. If you or your bike break at eg, Pickup Bank at 02.00, that's a problem.
Also, we're looking at around 75 miles some of which is very hilly. If you've not been out much recently, are you sure you're up to this ?
I'm not trying to put you off but I would ask that you have a careful consideration of your current abilities.
(Sorry I had a phone call whilst writing this post )Hello all
I really enjoyed the ride. Thankyou all for your company. Its such a good experience to do this ride each section is different and
It sounds like I missed a good ride, but I have done very little in the last few years and with the added complication of a recently torn ACL, decided discretion was the better part of valour.I've just twigged who you are Pumpkin TR. Damn forum name changes.
Even out of practise you'd still manage the ride more easily than me..........
Hope you can make it next year .
