Anyone done this before, its literally outside my new office!

Wanted to enter a race this year but never expected I'd try with my Brompton, don't fancy my odds with a heavyweight 2 speed.

    I'm supposed to be in the Team Challenge. Form suggests this is a bad idea.

    Is Wayne in the support race? No chance of me making that. I'm supposed to be doing the TT part, then the relay...

    I think I am going to go along and watch. Emailed them to find out how much hospitality is, but not got a reply yet.

    I'll be there, have to pop up to Rickmansworth to pick the Condor up anyway so handy to make an evening of it. I did the folding race (OK, the heat....) in 2008 & 2009, couldn't make it last year, not in this year as I no longer have an eligible bike. Hilarious fun, if somewhat knackering. One mate's in that, and another is in the penny race. Now that will be something......
