David: Ok ok, so our bike ride today, as I have been told many times plan, plan, so last night I set out my kit and made sure I had all the correct stuff, I then bought a number of new bars as part of my testing to see which energy bars work best, Tony turns up at 6:45 we load car and head of the the event. We arrive in plenty of time get the bikes set up and go to set of to check in. Ah no bloody helmet and bars or gloves ( bloody cold) bad thoughts slow turn into good thoughts as I think opportunity to purchase a new helmet 🙂 but no they lent me one 😦

Great ride
