Am doing this for reasons that escape me now.. anyone whos done it before recommend the sort of gearing needed? Never ridden that side of Leek, and the climb to Flash looks a swine on the profile, can't decide on a triple, changing to spare wheel with 32T big ring & MTB mech, or sticking with the 25T & shortcage mech I usually use.
For those who weren't aware there were unfortunately two accidents on the Legbreaker yesterday.
Both riders are good and will be up and about soon.
One from falling at a ford on the route and the second from a collision with a vehicle.
Thanks to everyone who enquired about the riders at the HQ yesterday.
We had some feedback over a missing sign, unfortunately the accidents happened close together at the same time we also heard about the sign and the priority was obviously reacting to the accidents.
Hope to see you all next year

Hi Marc - the rider who hit the vehicle (a milk tanker) was in a very bad way with several serious injuries to his head and has required operations on his jaw, to insert plates, and also reconstructive work on his eye socket.
We are hoping he recovers in time but it was a nasty accident.
