Weeell, I didn't exactly make it either :D On Saturday I was still all fired up for doing the 30k; but having spent all saturday working in the garden, my bed on sunday morning was just too appealing! So I stayed in it. oh well, my intentions were good :-)

Hi PAul - you and your mate still heading to Vernham Dean tomorrow? I think I'll still make it - may only do the 30km tho, I've not been out for a ride for ages, and I'm not sure my fitness is up to he 50k. Also I have an offer of pub lunch, so I'd like to get round, and get off to meet up for that - aiming for a 9:00 start (assuming I can get my roof bars assembled in the morning!).

Sounds like a plan Jamie :)

Cool. I'm normally finished by the end of 50 - its a bit unfortunate that the fun swoopy singletrack bit is at the end and I'm normally too knackered to enjoy it fully! But the 80 is the 50 route plus going round again to do the 30 loop - so you can decide to head in, or carry on at the end of the 50k. Have to organise meeting up nearer the time.

It seems like my mate & I are coming :) I don't have a car so I'm sort of reliant on my mate, but he's VERY keen to do it. I've managed to get 54 miles out of him on a road bike so far so we'll probably sign up for the 80km

That looks fun I'll have a word with my mate at work as he's more a MTBer than a Roadie like me and he's already signed us up for a Real Ale Ride in Wales later this year.

Anyone interested in doing the Test Valley Tour mtb ride? 20th May. http://www.testvalleytour.com/hot_mtb.htm I've ridden the 50k I think 3 times now (or maybe 2 hot ones and a cool, can't really remember). Always an enjoyable ride through the countryside, with enough fast bits and some tricky bits to keep it interesting; even better if it is actually 'hot'. Would be fun to get a bunch of CyclingBuddy jerseys together :)
