    looks as though you scrubbed up well to get up on stage

    always remember that you are absolutely unique, just like everyone else.

    Fun Formula

    1 Mix a Mandy
    2 Moxy load of bikes
    3 a few Mountain roads not to mention a some twisties and boreeens
    4 a bunch of Tossers

    Mandy you do your best thinking on the back of Aiden's bike if it's true that that's where you were when you thought this weekend up.

    It was fantastic to meet so many people who were up for a great time - and to have the power of knowing but not telling - I promise I didn't send anyone on the wrong route if you got lost maybe it was your map/GPS.

    The routes were great and hotels wonderful.

    I tried my best to put faces to names even wrote them down, but seemed to forget them almost immediately. apologies to all of you I had to ask again who you were on the second morning. Really enjoyed meeting everyone at the checkpoints, the time passed quickly having the banter and seeing the different approaches to the routes.

    Best one was in Lifford when at least 8 guys sat around the table programming their GPS's the concentration on the faces and total silence. Then a quick look by each of them at the map to see how successful they were. One guy was trying to find Glencar waterfall in Saudi I can be bribed to stay quiet, but enough to say be carefull on the US trip.

    Now the difficult bit, I seldom take pictures and even more dfficult can I get them on here
