See what I did there SA?  I think it's becoming tradition that I ask a stupid question every year for the DIY half...

Will be putting my name down once I get the annual "You have been unsuccessful..." letter from VLM 

 

My birthday is the 9th so if not in VLM (most likely!) I'll be hoping to head to this!

I *might* not be able to make it now, as i'm jetting of to California on the 19th for the Big Sur marathon (woo hoooooo!) which doesn't conflict as such, but it is more the lack of days off i've got now!  If I can make it after work on the 11th, then i'll come up.  Hope to be there though So i'll be taking my name off the 'doing' list and putting it on the 'helping' list instead

Sorry to be a pain but for those of us who have not done this one before but are eager beavers, could someone post a little information as to what the weekend will consist of.  Thanking you. Oh and I thought it was flat!  Sounds hilly all over to me !

Right you will meet up at SA's house drop off any kit you want and then head over to the pool nearby. Rake up your bike have some banter and head in the pool. Swim a bit head outside grab your bike and do loop's around Mac. The loops are slightly hilly in places if you are not used to hill's but nothing scary. There is normally a water/feed station at Q's dad's house so make sure you give Them a big hug and a thankyou.

Back to SA's house drop your bike off and head out for a road. It's all sign posted but that doesn't mean the sign post's won't be nicked like one of them was this year but everyone else will be looking out for you. Back to SA manor to a big cheer and some food.

Everything is slightly informal and some good mischief and banter throughout. IF your a newbie it's a very good way to get used to transition and also stop worring if you can do the distance, if your not a newbie it's a good way to meet your mates and talk carp all weekend. Q, Jo and there family have in other years put a lot of hard work into making this fun for everyone and like wine just in case. Sadly this year's going to fall on my wedding anersursay so hopefully taking sarah somewhere special (TBC) so might not be down.

Did someone mention camping? in April? in the UK? although i have never been to macclesfield so is it hot then?

i can provide an adequate amount of yogurt (i.e. a boot full) if need be
