It was a toughie last year, well it crapped me anyway. Ace countryside, possibly the best... Anyhoo, will I see you all there? Mmmm?
I am doing this one. I did the Legbreaker challenge the other week so hope that will stand me in good stead for this one. The Profile does look tough 3200m total climbs. Is it similar terrain to the Yorkshire Dales?
I'm just off for a quick spin over Holme Moss this afternoon get my last ride before Sunday.
I will be on Wilier Mortiro wearing white top/ white MET helmet.
Will be wearing red and black, blue/black MET helmet, and riding my blue Basso (yellow decals) with a bodged-on rack. If you spot me at the start say hi before you burn off down the road!

Will be on a Cervelo and (probably) wearing a red assos top, Bell helmet, please say howdy!
will be on a Black Thorn Raven Catalyst with Rohloff gears,
I'm not doing the ride but I am off to do, Waddie Lamb and Tatham on Sunday
That's one fcking tough route huh. Seven bleedin' hours, 30 minutes slower than last year. WTF?
Oh well such is the way of the universe. It's the next day now and I can't walk proper like.
As for not walking proper, like - I certainly struggled to walk to the local shops last night, but today my legs feel okay - tired, but not too bad. My back and neck are the real problem - they feel like I've been attacked by a 20 stone gorilla wielding a baseball bat!
Colin, sometimes I think you have a very sado/maso streek! That ride sounds trully awful!
