    I'm interested, as long as my leg 'injury' has been resolved by then.

    Training at the moment is non-existent grrrrrr! Sad

    Only 6 places left.

    Paul are you doing it on your own or you with a group? I would like to ride with someone, if thats alright.

    I understand if you want to ride as fast as possible. I am not as quick as you.

    It would good if a few more off us are doing the ride. Anyone else Very Happy

    I've got a couple of mates coming over from Swansea, but you are more than welcome to join us mate. The more the merrier. We can show them Taffs how we do things WCG style (the 1hr stop for cake halfway around is up for democratic vote! Laughing )

    I would very much like to commit to this event, but at the moment I'm happy to be still walking. Sad

    No cycling for another week methinks. Hopefully I should be 'back in the saddle' soon.

    Ah yes Paul . . . Perhaps I'd better not comment which one of those I do most . . . . . . . . uh, yeah, walking definitely!

    Chris, Martin, thanks. Just some tendon issues I've been suffering with over the past several weeks - extremely frustrating. Abstaining from cycling seems to be the only remedy to get shot of it. Can you imagine just how much that sucks?

    No summer bike until I'm fit!!
