Hi All,

I'm doing the Cheshire Cat on Sunday - No 76 - anyone on the forum say hello and make yourselves known, Oh.. and don't forget to wear your braces so I can hook em around my handlebars for a tow!! :D

Fingers crossed that the weather keeps good.

Cheers

Poucher :wink:

    Temp 6-10C,

    ... shorts or longs?

    BBC weather has is windier than that, I live about 10m from Mow Cop and I've not worn just shorts all year yet for info (did attempt legwarmers + shorts but had to go back to tights). Not doing this btw, but good luck to those that are, I might wander over to cheer on a few people up the killer mile :)
  • I'm number 100.

    The weather does look better than what they were predicting earlier in the week. Still working out if its going to be shorts & kneewarmers or bib longs.

    If it's anything like last year it'll be a great ride.

    Good Luck. :wink:

    Living in Holmes Chapel, most parts of the Cheshire Cat route are a nice run for me - including the Mow Cop climb where I get away with zig-zagging up the 25% (OK - the 10%) sections. I truly admire everybody who does the run in competition mode and I wish I didn't feel such a nana standing and clapping the short route riders as they go over the mini-roundabouts in Holmes Chapel. If anybody is reading this after the event - well done for even entering !
