So I am in with Shafiq.
We are now starting in Castleton as the parking is easier.
Provisionally at 7am, but if anyone wants to join us, than this is flexible.
Go on! you know you want to!
Thanks Paul.

Re: Peaks200 groupstart: 28/29 June

So I've spoken to Paul/Tonto. Seems he is free on 25th and 26th. So thats the new dates. If anyone is wondering, it will be an ITT rules ride so hopefully we will have another (heres to hoping) couple of groupstart ITT finishers :-bd Lets wait for Paul to confirm what timings he's available for and ...

Re: Tour Divide 2019

Wise words James... Very fair point which I never thought about... I dont like cameras and intrusions either and if it was sudden before something like this, yes you're right, I would be cheesed off and it might play on my mind!...

Re: Peak 200 Group start 9 July

fair point. But the fact that none of the other riders are really documented (and from the above report that they've just about acknowledged SS), its not what I was hoping to watch/see... Anyway, its their money and I guess they need to focus on what will make their products sell (seeing SS and his ...

Re: Tour Divide 2019

Sorry just following on from AH having to loop back...

Re: Tour Divide 2019

It's going to be a sad day when the MH flag gets beaten and won't show up each year. Amazing riding for the leaders but for some of us who met him (all be it briefly several times) it will be a another sad farewell to Mike. #BeMoreMike Yes, was thinking exactly the same thing today.

and it will become a commercial event for companies to use as an advertising campaign. Has it not become that already? What appears to be the most popular bike out there?

Anyone want some "these are the best socks in the world" probably

Don't want anyone thinking I'm taking the p as I'm not. So the socks are the Darn Tough thick version and are "used". Cost me around £21 and are handmade in Vancouver (and what a lovely job they do of them too). Reason why they're being given away is cos some areas are thinning a bit of the merino a...

That is the weekend before the Jennride, so not possible for me. I struggle with weekends off as I am a humble shopkeeper. I would favour starting early on a Monday or Tuesday.
