    Sure Woody, when and where is good for you? I pass Northwich around 6ish Mon to Thurs evenings if that’s any good for you?

    No worries, would only slow me down anyway. Will no doubt invest in a year or so, and a new bike to go with it!

    Cheers Andy, though am sorry to say that the Dura Ace callipers have gone to London via ebay! I think I might take you up on your offer though if you haven’t already binned it? Not bothered about the puke, pee and crap, am covered already and too tired to really care!

    Ouch! She’s incredibly brave and didn’t show any pain at all until trying to ride off. I’m really surprised, get well soon Carol.

    I hope it’s not a broken arm Carol! Felt bad leaving you guys, but as Kris mentioned light was fading and we were getting nervous, got back with about 10 mins of light left. Hope you’re all ok and got back safely too.

    Get well soon and let us know how you got on at the hospital.

    Nice blog John, sounds like you guys had fun! Just a correction though as I think it was Tim who turned back before Chester and it was Lee and Orbea Rob that I rode back with. Certainly wouldn’t forget Lee after the punishment he was dishing out with Rob. We hammered it back, Team-Time-Trial style, hitting close to 40mph at points on what were nearly flat roads. I tried to tell them to leave me be, but they both insisted I rode with them. So I clung on for what turned out to be an 84 mile ride with no cafe stop! Only towards the end of the ride did Lee turn to me and say that he used to be on the GB squad, trained with a certain Mr Hoy and Mr Wiggins and narrowly missed out on competing at the Olympics. I suddenly didn’t feel quite so bad, and felt a whole lot better once I got in a devoured a whole pizza to myself!

    Cheers guys, was possibly the toughest ride I’ve done in ages – but I needed it!

    Glad to hear you’re ok Lesley, you’re not having much luck staying on your bike recently! Hope you get back on soon and it doesn’t dampen your amazing enthusiasm.

    Cheeky sod, my mountain bike has been muddy once… I made sure there was photographic evidence (check out the Mary Townley Loop blog). Having said that though I wont be out tomorrow as just got back from a week in Northern France catching two stages of the Tour. Took eight hours to get back from Dover this afternoon in our lovely crowded wet island so I’m having a day off tomorrow! Enjoy yourselves.

    Great blog Kev, you really captured the night! Cheers Andy for taking on the leader role (even if you were over-ruled by Mrs Underhill on numerous occassions regarding route choices!) Also well done to Titch and Les for their massive enthusiasm, hopefully a few initiation-tumbles haven’t put you off?! Right gotta go clean my bike, was hard for me to leave it dirty in the garage for a whole night but I wasn’t getting the hosepipe out at midnight…

    My thanks too to Steph and Alan and to Nick for organising. Hopefully I’ll never need to call on what we learnt, but you never know.

    Yep thoroughly enjoyed it cheers Craig, great to ride on roads that I would never find by myself! Good group out today and I think we all behaved ourselves and worked really well together for what felt like a very fast 85 miles.

    Personally a Friday would probably work better for me, but I can do a Saturday. So 26th or 25th is good for me, think it’ll be a good night for the randy wildlife too…?
