    Has anyone had any further thoughts about a ride on Friday? I'll probably have to work Friday morning and then travel up, so if I have a target time, it will make it a lot easier to draw a line and go.

    In the past Gaz has arranged an evening trail ride, if not I will be leaving the site around 16:30 for a few hours on the lanes.

    Perfick - I may have to turn up and dump the panniers, but that sounds great.

    Cheers

    no need for pm's, just turn up in the car park at the right time for each ride.
    times will be announced or posted on the notice board on friday night (except the fri afternoon ride which I guess will be posted here)
    Usually meet 9:45 for a 10:00 start but I think we may stagger it this year with Skygod's ride setting of about 9.

    If folk want a ride in the afternoon on the Friday then we have a few guides willing to take you. I will be happy to take a group about 2pm. Any later and I hardly think i will be worth it as most the lanes are a good 30 mins away.

    The easy off road will be suitable for all bikes even if on road tyres. Don't let that fool you into thinking it will be boring. We'll be taking in some of the best scenery in the Peaks and optional harder lanes will be available along the route for those who want them. Tarmac options for all lanes for people who want them as well.
