  1. Hey thom, good to hear from you finally!

    No worries about the treasure hunt, we can work on something big/better organised sometime in the future if you ever make it back..

    Dan mentioned that he is giving up his courier job with the printers, maybe thats an avenue if your still into that sorta thing.

    Ive been trying to get in contact, you need to hook me up with your current email address.

  3. What is it with people and barges lately? Loads of people seem to be missing rides or having days off work because they’re on a canal boat…

  5. Well, I don’t know what the prizes are, because I haven’t bought them yet, although the women’s prize will probably be cheap fizzy wine as an imitation of champagne, and a faux-gold medal, and some cheap bike stuff begged off Adrian (pumps, repair kits, inner tubes, that sort of thing).
    Men’s prize will probably be death by beating with a blunt object, perhaps Adrian’s spanner.

  7. No



    Also there’s a prize for 1st girl. So if you are the only girl to enter, you win the prize by default. If you’re first overall you win both prizes.

  8. Is this a fixed/ss-only thing? The only fixed wheel I have is my track bike. I wouldn’t mind entering this on my road bike though if possible. What are the prizes?
