For what of a better suggestion, let's meet 08:30 at my house.
The route might be a reverse of the Stanbury-Wycoller loop and hopefully we can fit in a visit to the cafe in Heptonstall.
Pete Horne also mentioned a 200k Audax starting Burnley way and going round Tan Hill see http://www.aukweb.net/cal/index.htm.

I could blame it on my gears which were misfiring, and my injured knee which, to be fair, was giving me jip, but this really doesn't wash, so, perhaps I should blame it on the deadening effect of three hundred flat and steady miles over the previous weekend, and then, for good measure, blame my age.
On reflection, none of this will do; might just as well blame it on the boogie. Truth is, as I say, I sort of gave up; not really a good plan with Robin and Melvyn, on the front, tapping out tempo.
You'll be pleased to know I gave myself a good kicking on my solo ride from Settle back to Keighley.
Hope you all had a good day and see you next Sunday!
PS What's happened to Brian? I passed him going up Ingrow - you won't be surprised to know I was in a car, he was on a bike - at first I didn't recognise him, not a hint of Condor blue but pretty in pink - has he lost the faith?

Meet Denholme at 8:30, Keighley at 9 and we should then find Nigel & Melvyn at Steeton traffic lights for 9:15 (don't ask - wait, on second thoughts, go on ask them, it'll slow them down a bit if they have to talk as well as ride). Cheers, Ian

Because it’s a Saturday event we are combining the VETS & Senior races so less time on site for helpers.
