An interesting alternative to the Dirty Reiver  - Matt Page's 2 day local Gritfest in June?

I think I'll enter Gritfest but will need to wait until January and hope that there are spaces.

And I'm very tempted to buy a Genesis Vagabond which would be ideal for this, but also looks a lot of fun. (Monster cross - steel frame and forks, 2.1" 29er wheels, drop bars...)

Is that the new one, I think I saw that, looks nice!  8)

Right, I'm entered into the Gritfest. That saving is worth having. I reckon, like most of Matt's events, it'll probably sell out with only 200 places.

I just hope it's not too rough for the Paralane.   ::) :o

You're not representing me!

Hope you enjoyed though.

Yeah, you don't have a choice on such things. In fact we're having Pigs club  lycra shorts made, with "For Tristan" printed on the left cheak! Any suggestions for something on the right cheak? I wanted "and glory" but the boys said it was too reminiscent of George Michael.
