Not as fast as me because I set out on Saturday 27th August and arrived home 2 days earlier, about and hour ago infact.

So as you can imagine it was pretty fast and thus I have already done my ride for Saturday.

If you see me on Saturday don't talk top me as it may upset the space time continum.

It now leaves my diary clear for work and granchildren sitting.

Good luck lads and for those whimps who can't make Saturday I may do a simular ride tomorrow and get back yesterday!

I'm not expecting to use the small ring at any point on the ride.

I've just fitted a 60 ring up front
End up going pretty quick
60x11x400x90=48mph

Are we wearing skinsuits tomorrow?

60 is a bit small I was thinking of something a bit bigger to take advantage of the skinsuit aero and below sea level air pressure.

Doing a couple of hours on the turbo this evening and then high altitude oxygen tent to give me that edge, oh and one of the doctors "tonics" of course.

I've hired a Derney and driver for the day, so its motor paced there and back.

I have just got back from next Sunday's road ride.

I fitted the fly wheel from an old traction engine I saw on Detling hill up front and notched out a cotton reel for the back hence I left the day after tomorrow and got back two days earlier.

I am working all day tomorrow (Saturday) so I will look out for you guys when I get around the Deal area just in case you come spinning past the "Road Wolf" behind the derney.

You boys could really spice it up a bit by fitting a smaller wheel at the front and then you will be going permanently down hill.

Bazza I ride My Kula Deluxe along the sea front to Reculver at 48mph and that's with a 24 tooth on the front and a 32 on the back? I am expecting great things from you with that 60 tooth bad setup, if you don't get caught speeding along the M2 I will be very disappointed
