  • Planning on riding the 100km with 3 or 4 others from our club.
    Lets hope for temperatures above zero.

    Shame, The 100k is too far for me and 40k isn't really worth doing...
    40 miles would be better...
    Assume everyone is an idiot and let them prove you wrong!!!

    Yeah it looks like a nice route with North Hill thrown in.
    Club jersey is light blue with GC on the back so hopefully you'll spot us.
    I'll be the one wheel sucking in the middle :shock: :lol:

    I have got hold of a GPX file of last years route.
    Any idea if it's the same this year?

    A good ride out though.
    Thanks for the heads up NewTTer.

    Yes it was testing today, but a good turn out 253 riders, which cant be bad for a cold windy Feb day, I saw some Gateway guys, so I guessed you were amongst them
