    what time do you reckon we'd be back home Paul ?
  12. I agree with the guys, this was a very well organised event, in a stunning part of the country on great roads... we stayed in a quaint wee village called Kettlewell in 4 different lodging all within about 100 yrds of each other and had a meal in the local hotel, food was great and for once we went easy on the pints, only 3 or 4 max .. as for the ride itself, no-one has exaggerated how tough this was, easily as tough as anything I've done before including the Fred and the Marmotte Pyrenees, it seemed that every single climb had sections in the high teens or low 20's plus a couple of 25 percents that seemed to go on for ages... as usual the company was great, so despite the pain it was a really enjoyable day in a masochistic kind of way.. Slept like a baby when I got home.. mcginty
  13. Just asking for a friend whose looking for his first road bike... he’s 5’11, so I’m thinking a 56cm would be ideal .. something used but decent, Shimano 105 level kit in good nick, probably alloy frame .. if anyone is looking to sell please let me know . cheers ian
