One of your better shots - and you resisted over processing it :)

Re: HT550 - 2024

Allen is working to a plan of completing the HT550,
He's doing around 75 miles a day and 8 hours rest over night.
I estimate he'll finish at around 2.30pm on Saturday afternoon if nothing fails on route :-bd

Re: The Welsh Ride Thing - Lonely Hearts Club Ride - Sat 4th May to Mon 6th May 2024

I can highly recommend any newbie to Bear Bones, to the WRT and to bike packing in general will have a brilliant weekend of riding with Reg.

He's one hell of a character and will guarantee a weekend to remember, that's for sure.
