    Mine starts tomorrow, so I'll get my post in early! :wacko:

    Flying to Tampere (Finland) tomorrow morning to take part in this

    http://www.pirkankierros.fi/indexpy1.html - don't try and read it, it'll make your eyes water! ;)

    A 134 km night ride, starting at 21.00. My mate did it in about five and a half hours last year, and I promised him I'd do it with him this year! Borrowing a bike, but I'm taking my pedals and saddle.

    Apart from tiredness, the biggest problem I anticipate will be resisting the temptation to drink lots of vodka, and the billions of mosquitoes that 'patrol' there. :thumbsup:

    Mine started last Friday:evil: The joys of being off school, but i did go in today for an hour' an half.
    This weekend i will be washing the bike, going on the club ride( was going to do the saturday one which is faster but i'm waiting till next week when my cold will be gone, hopefully) so will be out on the club ride on Sunday. Saturday might go out for a quick spin depending on weather and how the cold is.

    Getting my hair done and then ruining it under a helmet on a ride somewhere round Yorkshire. Dying to get back on the bike after a week back in the office!!

    And then going to see Sex and the City the Movie somewhat belatedly. Seriously cannot wait. And then going for cocktails.
