Hi Dave, that would be really nice to meet up and have a chat. Would you like to pick a place, and a date to meet?
I work Mon to Fri, so any weekend is good. It would help with my practice/ route planning to come to you.
Thank you so much.

Re: Owls reply: I have another sat navy on order. What's the best picture repair kit? What's the pros and cons of putting "goop" in your tyres?
Thanks to all for your advice

I always carry two different types of puncture repair kit - gummy strings and plugs, ready for most type of punctures. The important thing is to have a means of inflating the tyre afterwards. Small compressor does it for me, being of the lazy persuasion.

I used to put goop in the tyres, but have no idea whether it worked as I had no punctures during its use. Either lucky, or it worked without me knowing.

Thanks for that. I have found a puncture repair kit, c/w mini compressor, plugs and goop. £23 on eBay from M&P I think. Will get it after xmas, once back to work. Bike is still on the road, had a nice ride out on Christmas morning.

I know Holbeach, I pass it regularly on my way to friends in Hull. Tesco's Cheltenham is fine. Saturday 7th or Sun 8th, 1300? but I'm flexible.

Thanks for the info. Will have a go at he Iceni this year. I have completed a few RBLR 1000, only failing to finish once.
Catastrophic front tyre failure on the A9, south of Inverness
The tyre was a Continental Road Attack. A strip, approx 25cm long, by 2cm wide, peeled off the centre of the tyre. Fortunately, we had just got straight after overtaking 3 coaches. The tyre deflated so quick, the rim sat on the rubber. There's a lay by every half mile on the A9, so I just rolled in, managing to stay upright, 2 up.
Hello and Happy New Year all.

Please could I check the start/finish times of the rally? Is it Saturday morning to sunday arvo?
