Currently planning an 84 mile (135kms) route so get the miles in so that you're ready  Shocked

Leaving start point @ 09:00
Leaving Willy Wicket @ 09:20

Planning on two stops. First will be at the Waterfall Restaurant in Cheddar and the second will be either Weston Super Mare or Sand Bay.

The route: http://connect.garmin.com/course/5448181

If you remember Mark there was that pub in Wedmore where we all stopped once on one of our epics.We put our bikes in the garden if I remember rightly.I cant remember the name but I am sure it can be found on Google stree view.

I may well have to ditch the Jack & Grace as would be good to get some early mileage in.

Feel guilty about that, but I kinda understand what you are saying. How many are doing the J&G?

No idea how many from NBCC but all sold out with a record 180 riders - I've paid so they won't lose the benefit of 1 less rider on the day.

Thinking about it i'm going stick with the J&G and go in NBCC colours. I'm sure that there will be plenty of opportunities to get in some monster rides this year.

Getting excited about this now. Bike has been in for a service, new headset, bottom bracket, chain, rear sprocket and break blocks later and I am much poorer but will be glad of the new gear on Saturday i'm sure!

Not yet, they still have it. Got a it of a scare when they said it would take a week to get the bottom bracket I need. Avoided that by sourcing it myself and making it known that I need the bike back by Friday at the latest!

Ah James you will discover that Wiggle or Chain Reaction Cycles are very good and their delivery is extremely good.Looks like we will have to get you up to speed in repairing yourself.It is very satisfying.And there are lots of members who will help you out.One the one and only Mr Mills is not a million miles away from you.

I've used wiggle a lot, very good. This time I managed to get the BB through Halfords, cheaper and I can pick it up and take it straight to the shop to be fitted. I would love to be able to do more repairs and maintenance at home. Im happy cleaning, lubing, greasing etc.

Go on get some tools and have a play.There are loads of You tube vids on "how to".Or just post up your query someone will sure as hell help you out.
Something like this is a pretty good start most of what you need in the kit.
