    Oh well that's me out - just couldn't shift the flu off. I abandoned a couple of atempts. Ah well will just have to find another challenge to give me the motivation that this gave me last year.

    Good luck to everyone that has managed to get off the mark :D

    At this rate i'm going to need a turbo miles inclusion rule, I can handle the snow & ice but more than a couple of hours and I half freeze to death :evil:
    Rule #5 // Harden The censored Up.
    Rule #9 // If you are out riding in bad weather, it means you are a badass. Period.
    Rule #12 // The correct number of bikes to own is n+1.
    Rule #42 // A bike race shall never be preceded with a swim and/or followed by a run.
