Sad news. Condolences to his family and friends.
There's no such thing as a tailwind.
It's either a headwind, or you're going well.

Sorry James if you look at the past posts on this page you will see we are a closed group. It's not that we are antisocial it just works that way for us.
It was great to meet you last week and congratulations on successfully completing your Lejog

Respect James .. well done ...
Shocking news about Glyn ...
His decision to leave us came as a surprise, especially to Ken and myself i suspect, as we where chatting to him at the bottom of the Shap when he told us.
But he contributed to the ride .....

I booked for a driver as part of the group, you may remember l asked everyone to pay £2 extra to cover it. At that time we had no idea who the driver would be but thought that he shouldn't have to pay for his own camping.
This only applies to the actual riding days. I have no real idea what the riders who are going to Whitehaven the day before the start are doing that night

I'm concerned I won't be fit enough, I will be using the ebike but I still need to turn those pedals
