    Please count me in for this.

    A 1 in 3 hill sounds a bit hairy - should be OK as long as no hill starts are required!

    Always worthwhile stopping at the bottom and / or top of the Hardknott / Wrynose passes and taking in the aroma of fried clutches and brakes

    Help!!!

    This ride is now getting over full so the list is now closed(until we can sort out the following). We may have to split the group so is there anyone that knows their way around up in the Lakes willing to help out by leading the same ride but half an hour later so as not to clog the passes too much in one go. I'd be looking at a 1 hour lunch break so we all get to eat sort of together.
    Here's the list to date:

    Jez
    Petcul
    Chriskelley
    Val-H
    Kliene Blumen
    Garfield
    Toad & mrs Toad
    Adamneeds
    Stevebiker
    Lywood
    Aiden & Mandy
    JulieK and Partner (2 bikes?)
    Mort
    Gail
    PW Cymru
    Pugsley & boss
    AndyJW
    Flasman
    Mr Friday
    Dustcloud
    Majorbumsore
    Riktus

    Here's the route

    This'll be run now in two groups about half an hour apart to hopefully prevent the passes getting too clogged with gs's

    We should learn from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism. [/I]

    Hello all, so is there any room left? Wouldn't mind helping out if needed as I generally knock up around 120miles a day through the lakes due to living in Lancaster and working in Haverigg (and of course being unable to avoid minor detours on and off-road on my way home most evenings!). Would be great to totter around with some other GS' though. I'm sure my little 650 won't hold you up!

    Ah go on then

    I've put you on the list Micky so we now have an even number - 26
    anyone else will go on the reserve bench in case someone drops out. Bound to be someone too hungover on the day

    It's a Garmin Mapsource file I've not figured out how to do a screenshot from it (well not from my laptop anyway) hence just the file link at the moment.
