    May? As in “Be like a flower and turn your face to the sun.”

    THAT May? The not freezing cold and only vague possibilities of floods one?

    He’s gone soft. Bet he’s been listening to Wings and smiling at sheep.

    Pint after?

    I’m in!

    Now I need to find something daft to ziptie to my helmet so everyone cheers me on like last time, as sadly my plastic aeroplane broke on the final lap.

    That’s a shame. It was a lovely plane.

    I’m going glam this year….

    I’m in.  Hope weather is as nice as last year.

    Is it a good event? The web link doesnt really seem to tell you anything.

    Whats the terrain like?

    Quite possibly, it’s rather close to the Euro 24hr’s in the first weekend of June though, so maybe not.

    Breninbeer, really good fun and a decent crowsd: usually a mix of single-track stuff and the odd daft bit to spice it up. Can highly recommend, I’m going

    Not sure if I’d call it singletrack …it’s basically a route around an inner city green space. Good fun yes, but not singletrack in the MTB sense. I’d say the fun comes from the challenge (how many laps you can do in two hours) and the sense of spirit from a bunch of bikers coming together.  Can’t say the terrain is particularly interesting – it’s just a park in Manchester.

    Well that’s poured a pint of piss over it.

    The event will be brilliant. Miserable sods need not apply.

    It’s a field in Manchester in much the same way that Kylie is a bit of a looker, the Beatles were a decent pop band and Piers Morgan is a bit of a knob.

    A place where mud is worshiped, where loins are girt and where porridge is king.

    On a good day, you can almost see heaven, just over the horizon.

    Thanks all, it actually sounds quite fun. I jave caught your enthusiasm. Me and Mrs B really fancy a go now.

    Wahey!

    There is usually singletrack btw, some lovely bits.

    Course is varied, character building in the mud, fun in the dry.

    You can ride it on anything.

    There’s a great pub round the corner.

    And a nice field where you get your breath back…..

    🙂

    Where you at Harry? No chance of popping back for a day?

    Bad day? 😀

    I’ll text Louis.

    I can beat him. He’s only allowed the one lap.

    Quite literally the best two hours of you’re life!

    I’m in, well not officiially yet, but will be soon when I get round to actually entering.

    Target for this year is to be not quite as nearly (but critically not actually) last as last year! I may be slow, but at least my bike kind of stayed in one piece, unlike the bloke walking back with his crank in hand. Although my wheel was a very funny shape after an over the bars down that first hill/mudslide!

    *thousand yard stare*

    Not in this year, imminent baby arrival around then.  Top tip, a Nukeproof mega probably isn’t the best tool for the job, it certainly didn’t feel like it.

    Do the race though, it was mu first ever race/event and i was just left completely bewildered, is there a band playing at every race? 😀

    That middle photograph up there ^ That’s me at the right hand side of the frame “enjoying every minute of it”

    Shortly before I overtook number 8 IIRC.

    This were me last year
