    Okay I'll start the new year's thread this time to save jellywrestler doing it. So Alex Marquez is now confirmed as Marc's team mate at Repsol Honda.

    Joy of not being limited by gravel

    Thread Starter: MD

    Firstly the title implies that gravel stops road based bikes. Rubbish we have all done silly dirt roads on road bikes with super sticky tyres. Any way what I mean is having the right tool for the job improves the experience. For me today was an awesome experience of not having that nagging feeling...

      Anybody got room on the back for a young lass? Her mum passed from breast cancer a couple years ago and is pretty keen on attending. She'd need picking up/dropping off from the city, or could potentially travel some ways to you. PM me if you're keen to help out.

      Does she have her own gear? If no-one else puts up their hand (she'd need to have her gear), I can help, but I'm also on escort duties for the ride, hence preferring for someone else to assist.

      I've got some gear I can chuck her in.

      Is this still on given the weather? and are you aware that usually this carpark is reasonably busy on a Sunday morning as markets are held here every Sunday? (hopefully the markets will be fairly quiet tomorrow given the poor weather).

      Market is in the main car park. We meet in the side one, which has access to and from College Rd.
