    Do you mind.
    I am going to bed shortly and would prefer not to have nightmares.

    Care to share your experience?
    Just curious what they are like, as there seems to be a bit of a growing market.

    No, get there the day after, I was there last year when it was on. 3 of the lads did the middle distance.
    3 of us did our own thing because we hadn't entered.

    In my club there are seven of us 62-70. I'm 64. The eldest has had a heart issue for years but is now back on his bike. He was a very strong rider but needs the ebike these days. We all go out on Mondays, the ebike simply let's my mate join in. It doesn't effect the ride at all. Above 15 the motor cuts out so when we start pushing 16-18 he has to work and these bikes are heavy!!

    When I need one I'd have no hesitation in buying one

    Oh yes, indeed and hope so.
    A couple of years ago I was there early March and the mountains all had a white covering on them to half way down.

    Stopping in PP or Alcudia for convenience for the early start?

    I have heard of someone looking into getting one. Out of curiosity is there any way you could deregulate them as in the instance of your mate when he needs to go that little bit faster to keep up?
