Twaz good to meet up with you Smile

I was wondering about you having Aero's Smile but I guess you VIP's can get away with it Smile

Andy and Jacqui didn't even have to queue to go down the cycle path, they VIP'd straight to the front Smile

It was a really nice day out, The climbs were a nice shallow gradient and the descents were awesome!

I do however fear for the future of our sport when we have 3500 cyclists all on the public road at the same time, with many of them showing a lack of regard for other cyclists let alone the other road users Sad

john: didn't see you after the descent of the bwlch, think you must have overtaken me on the rhigos... certainly you finished long before i did Smile

spent most of the rest of the ride with gary from cyclescheme until i foolishly ingested a zipvit caffeine gel (the equivalent of 2.5 cans of red bull) which fired me back up the bwlch at warp speed. well, a bit faster.

cracking day out. agreed there was a few idiots out there, red light jumpers who had their numbers taken get disqualified according to organiser lou, but there were a lot fewer than last year apparently.
