    Solo spots already filled up. I am stupid enough to be one of them. Anyone else from here doing it this time round?

    nikk – i’ve done it four times now – once as a four, once as a duo and twice solo. great event and the atmosphere is what makes it ‘fun’. the dawn lap is always a good one. have you done it before or is the first one?

    Signed up as a pair. Have done it solo a few times. It’s a great event whatever the weather. Snow/ice/mud just makes it all the more interesting!

    nikk – worry not, i’ll be gentle πŸ˜‰ i’ll bring enough chocolate for both of us if you like.

    solo – SS fatbike? will keep a lookout! what are they like on ice – can you get huge spiked tyres or do you just run a really low pressure?

    banks – is this their christmas present?

    I’m in, solo too. NW, I may be interested in taking those tyres.

    Nobeer – me and Robin are both doing the solo. Have you sorted out a pit crew? Funnily enough no one seems keen.

    I’m in as a pair with Cynic-Al. I think I’ll take the fat bike too, but maybe get some skinny ice spikers just in case…

    Cynic Al better hurry up and get his new frankenframe to me for welding soon then! πŸ˜‰

    Tomd – Hadn’t really thought about a pit crew, So many other things to think about. Campervan, generator and heating are the priorities atm!. I’ll see you tonight if you’re going to AGM Tom?.

    camper van – for solo. what are you a poof ?

    dont even bother with a tent would be my advice – if theres no where warm to curl up then riding your bike to keep warm suddenly looks a great prospect.

    I’ve been down with the cold Nobeer and missed my latest event deadline. Shouldn’t be long now though.

    No idea how I’ll hold up to getting back into training…or trying to ride for 24hrs, but hey, it’s always fun!

    Any idea when the entry list of who’s entered is available?. Need to see who got in from some local clubs.

    I’m in too, singlespeeding and feeling the urge to use the fat bike πŸ™‚

    It’s not the fat on my bike that’ll be an issue….

    I’m in with a quad, 3rd year running now.

    Looking forward to it, good crack!

    Cheers, yeah I made it, it has a couple of metres of stainless steel chimney too. Borrowed one for last years puffer and melted my trainers, great for cooking too.

    We used a dustbin incinerator and a heap of my fire wood last year- what a differance to moral at 4 am knowing you had warm shoes to put on – and dry shoes from them sitting steaming for a couple hours infront of the stove

    Yup, a bit of warmth goes a long way in those circumstances. Just got to make sure someone is feeding the fire at all times!
