Old calliper brakes! - I'd be more concerned about them stopping me at speed than passing an inspection.
Have you sensible gears on this vintage machine?
And I meant to add I think Trihard (the Helvellyn people) have some sort of wetsuit deal going on...
I don't plan to be travelling all that fast . I've started commuting to work on it one day a week though. 70 mile round trip. It hurts.
There are some great suggestions on here. I'm going to telephone a few of them when i return from my lunchtime run. (see, I'm taking it very seriously).
Given the climb... I thought there was a fast descent? Is there not then?
There is, and it's quite twisty. Lined with dry stone walls for added graze-age!
