Well we're off to 'compete' in the jole rider 12hr night baton relay. 8pm to 8am round Hullavington airfield. Well, at least there aren't any hills...  1

While we're there wel'll be testing some lights: a couple of basic commuter LED units, a couple of high-end rechargeables, two cheap 'n' cheerful torches and a heath-robinson creation of my own devising. look out for the results on Monday. or Tuesday, if we fall asleep at the keyboard.

The ride is in aid of Jole Rider, a charity which sends bikes out to Africa for schoolchildren, some of whom have to walk more than ten miles a day. They also provide workshop tools and training so the bikes can be fixed when they break.

If you're feeling charitable, why not nick over to http://www.justgiving.com/nbr_hk and bung them a few quid?
