    So should we be starting up a 2014 thread to get a team together? I'm very keen to give this a go, it'll be the impetous I need to get out riding in a non-road sense again.

    A new thread might send the bike magic servers into meltdown.

    Yes, yes you are (as you were this year).


    I was thinking about either 12 Pairs or 12 Solo but if there's enough interest we could put a team or two together - Billy could do a few laps for us as a warm up to his solo

    We migt need someone on standby to be Alx for 23 hours mind......

    Count me out of a team, I may have volunteered to organise a racing team for the club. So I'll be in that (as pitch bitch only obviously) or solo.

    Don't know if I can get the time off, hang on I'm self employed, I'm in!
    Reckon I should do the 24 solo vet thing to convince myself that I was right in saying it didn't appeal.
    Better bring the fork servicing tools this time...

    Oh great, nothing worse than having an annoyingly cheerful bloke go past you when one is sulking.

    My thoughts exactly. If we've only ever seen him 'normal' grumpy/sweary I dread to think what "double" is like. Best leave Jr at home...

    ^^haha


    The missus is now suggesting I should do another solo :-/

    Apparently I'll only be super critical on myself if I only do the 12hour Torchbearer.

    She's probably right - you'll probably go nuts if you don't do as many laps in 12 as you would in 24 hours (vomit permitting).

    I'm going to get a fridge for the milk, then live on Weetabix for the duration, for that extra cheery cheeky chappy twinkle
