    Ady I did not understand a word of that if you turn out of your office walk down to mine you can tell me in English, hopefully before your 11am

    OK, I had a look at a bike route and we can do part of the classic Borrowdale MTB round. It goes out of Keswick on the road then singletrack road to Watendlath, where we will meet the runners I reckon? After mincing pies and wine, we have a short push, then a nice descent into Rothswaite, bit on the road to Grange, pick up another bridleway, then road back to Keswick. When I first rode this, I felt it had far too much road, but will do nicely for Saturday, as I am far from fit... The whole route goes from Rothswaite on the road to Honister, and joins a bridleway at the top of Honister. That bridleway isn't all that rideable unless you have a full downhill rig and also, I'd like to cut out the Honister climb... I assume you have a MTB Amex?

    I shall endeavour to wear a fancy dress on Saturday... That will work either way for me. I can come as a woman if it is fancy dress, or just dress fancy if it isn't

    Following last years Daz's XOTF a beer and the new tradition of raising a glass to our sadly missed friend we will be carrying on with this new tradition.
    Like it or lump it the ones at the night do will raise the first glass to Daz we will also raise to Bo Peep and any others we love and miss at this special time of year, we are not trying to make this event a morbid thing we will just have a moment then get hammered!

    What do you think about the idea of keeping a bike in your car overnight in Keswick?

    I always keep at least one bike in the car overnight in Keswick... I probably should not have advertised this...

    Didn't give it any thought at all, if we go through life worrying about what might happen we would spend all our life worrying.
