    I'm excited, Training and in! Bring on the bogs and bloody awful weather. Still the start and finish is only a couple of miles from home.

    I was out on part of the route yesterday, it's looking pretty churned up in places - particularly the bit over Bingley Moor. From Whetstone Gate up to West Buck Stones was fecking awful, the worst I've seen it .... and of course, they make you stay on the north side of the wall nowadays.

    I've been in deep on that bit on from Keighley Gate before now, and last year slipped and grazed my head on the wall. Might be worth going down and passed the cross. Did that recently and it wasn't too bad. Lets hope for a big freeze.

    yes Matt, the detour via Cowper's Cross is a tad longer but certainly more runnable. there's not much difference time-wise. What you lose in seconds you'll probably save in energy. If you take the traditional route by the wall, there is in a few places a choice of staying very close to the wall or going slightly wider, and often the latter avoids some of the worst/deepest bogs and puddles.

    I had to go very wide on Sunday You're right though, there are a couple of places where hugging the wall can avoid some nasty stuff. Another place that looked quite eroded and worn was the descent down to the conduit, but then it's only short I suppose.
