I'm rather annoyed. :roll:

I don't get weekends off, and miss a whole magnitude of rides, or have to use holiday allowance which doesn't ever go down well at home and I now have to work the Saturday I wanted off. :roll:

My Jennride will be starting at 830 pm after working. If you see my lights heading in the wrong direction of Jennride, don't worry, it's all part of the plan to have at least Sunday with you all. ~X(

Hi

Does anyone know a person that might like a transferred place - with Postierich's permission of course. I've been a divvy :oops: and double booked myself with the HT550.

Wow only 5 from the forum ;-) suppose its a bit harder to actually bike pack than it is to talk about it :lol:
Very disappointed with the returns and lack of donations on the just giving site , toilets have been booked so unable to send a couple back suppose thats the problem when you do a very low entry fee and hope people will donate.
To incentivise people there will be a free bar Friday night with fire pits and a burger van on site which will do butties in the morning from 6.30am.
Hope to see a few more of you @ the weekend :-)
Big thank you to Singletrack World £250
Charlies Bum Butter £100
Gorilla Brake Pads £100
Stu @ Riders Cycle Centre £100
Stu Taylor Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery (lots of beer)
Alpkit for the feed stations (treats) don't rely on them

rely on them
My experience of events is that 20 - 30% of folk don't turn up, regardless of how much they pay for entry. Maybe time to up the entry fee, skip the donation element and don't offer returns/refunds.

FWIW I was never likely to travel down to the event but fuel (and other living) costs are increasing so I can see that might play a part.

Also, trying to make the course more and more challenging (or even just hinting at that) means you are going after an increasingly small section of the market. I'm not going to drive several hundred miles to push my bike up a hill. I can do that from my house 😉

(Waves hand enthusiastically) I’ll be there with two newbies in tow. Will give them some hassle and check they’ve donated.

I think Rich has stated (on here or elsewhere) that following Storm Arwen the forests in the South Lakes are pretty much out of bounds for organised events which limits options somewhat. There was still a lot of wind blow on Claife Heights and in Grizedale Forest just a few weeks ago, quite worrying getting past it with everything creaking away. There's not many easy options to get from the South Lakes to the North so route options are further limited.

There's not a lot of technical terrain between Gatesgarth Pass at 25km and starting up Styhead Pass at around 100km so the potential Hike-a-bike is actually quite small.

My understanding is that routing has been impacted by the number of fallen trees, somewhat limiting the options. I've seen a couple of photos/read some comments but other than that, I can't compare it to previous events.

LOL - crossed posts Bob.

Hi Rich. Not sure if the messages is coming through so here I am. I've got my ticket and made a donation and wondered whether I missed the gpx file that was meant to be sent out closer to the ride day. :smile: sorry for being so hasty...
