    I would like to encourage any of you.That are thinking of taking part in the relay.To do so.It is a wonderful day out,that you will remember for a long time after.We were blessed with glorious weather and terrific scenery not to mention very good company.So if you are dithering make some time and find someone to ride with eck it is only one day.Have a damn good day out and meet that name you see on the Cyclechat page.We are looking forward to meeting a few more at Ladybower very soon.Final photos of York.

    What is it.

    A super idea to make a jersey was suggested and Will1985 was the bravest to take on the task.Now to be known as Sir Will1985.For it came to pass that it was created but a cock up meant it had a spelling mistake.So they all went back.Well out of that fiasco came the brill idea to get two and have a relay pass on the shirt up,down across the country.So it is now happening and a great time is being had by all who have taken part.
