Anybody doing this?

I entered t'other week but have never been to this neck of the woods.
I've entered 2hr and expect to wobble around at the back but just curious to know if any of you guys will be there?

Thanks for the link- interesting reading- if not a bit lengthy!

But who is doing round 3? ;)

Hi Jon,
I'm doing the 4 hour cat. I'm getting to Aldershot by train and then 1.5 miles ride to the venue. Be there at around 9am. Which cat are you doing?

I've signed up for the four hour cat too. Haven't been on the bike much recently though!

Sarpullido;
Just the 2hr.
I'm in the process of trying to sort out a better way of carrying bikes- currently my bike is squeezed in the back of a small car.
If I can get this sorted I'd be happy to give you a lift up there.

It is, however, unlikely I'll get it sorted in time for this one but for any future events we both do.
I'm not a serious rider but would be happy for the company and guidance/advice.

Jason, do you not drive?

I've just (this morning) bought roof bars + bike carrier, but it's only for one cycle. My car is a very small hatchback, and whilst you can just squeeze a bike in with the seats down, it was a proper squeeze.

I'm happy to take people, but at the moment I'm unable to carry a second bike. If, however, you ride a Brompton folding bike then we could be in luck!

Jason,
Sorry, that was me being a prick.
I read your name but VW surfbum's post about needing a lift! I scanned the page quickly and ballsed it up. Whoops.

I don't ride much so expect to see me at the back of the 2hr field.
Red Alfa Romeo Mito and silver Specialized Epic. Otherwise I look like most other 5'10" white men in lycra with short hair- no distinguishing features, sorry.
