Awesome news. What are you going to study? I'm thinking about going back to uni but lacking committment. I would have to give up riding (competitively) and hence can't bring myself to enrol.

Now! How do I best ask you to tell me about something you don't talk about? Mh?

"red- thanks! uncle simon?! eek!"

A bivvy and a ride around the peaks.
Both of which were inspired by your past rides + simons picture of his bike kitted up ready to go.

Chris said...

I'll set off now!

Lady Alex MTB has pics of the bivvy on her flickr stream...

The bottom of my shoe fell off but thankfully both legs are stil attached.

My comments/email were simply to try and thank you for introduction to bivvying and helping me sort out the kit. Without your help this ride would never have been possible.

kate said...

vdubber- bestwood, heading towards the off campber/disapearing trail that pops out onto the 'yellow road'. do you ride over this way?

lesleyh- ace! i'll be the dribbling mess in a red cap ;)
