Light lunch indeed :) The curry, for those that did not go last year, is not to be missed or underestimated! I think Dr Zippy and I did our best to end 3 helpings! If for no other reason than to add another thermal layer to the tent. :huh:


Those that have not ridden with me before :). I ride at a relaxed pace, I'm out to see the countryside at the end of the day.

I lived in Cumbria for about 2 years and there are plenty of places to stop and eat - depending on time will depend where I stop - normally a country pub of some kind :)

At the base of the first set of passes is a nice pub, we can stop at for a brew - depending on who is riding with us - I like to check that everyone is happy with pass riding and that there are no issues with the team.

I ride to the drop off system and I have posted a guide up in the rally sections for anyone that is not used to this system :)

I will also be going over it again on the day, so not to worry - you will NOT get lost :)
