Green 1 too.
Bricking it now. Think I'll be swept up as I don't think my bike is fast enough. Heavy boardman hybrid.  Plus my longest ride is 42 miles.
Trying to break 50 tomorrow 😯

The actual course is rolling but no real big hills so as long as you can cycle within yourself and take it easy up some of the long drags you should be fine. At worst case you can cut across at Fillongly at 930. Also remember that with closed roads there will be no need to stop and start so momentum can be carried across. (just look around for other bikes). However I would build up the distance still in the next two weeks. Maybe a 40 with an hours stop and then 30 back.

Just to let you all know they've confirmed delivery is on schedule for next week. Obviously, you've then got to wait for me to get round to posting them on... I'll let you know when they're here
Posting on or meeting pre-Norwich match?

Whichever you chose, Iím still going to Norwich. Iím taking my 5 year old daughter to this match. It will be her first along with my 7 year old boy who is an old hand now.

I may have an unexpected opportunity for one of these in large if anyone missed getting an order in. Let me know.

Still available??

Sorry, no. If enough people want one Iím happy to put in another order. I think the minimum at this price is 10.

Arrived today. I'm happy enough with mine, hope you will be too. I will get them in the post tomorrow. If anyone has changed their mind and wants to collect them at Villa Park instead, let me know (I'm thinking there might be more people going now!).

Mike.

I'm missing a few addresses, I've PM'd those I need them from.

If you're happy with the tops, any donations to www.justgiving.com/Michael-Unwin3 would be massively appreciated.

Thanks Mike.

This means I'll get it in time for the Purity Brewery ride on the 4th.  I believe there will be beer and BBQ afterwards, should anyone else think of joining....

All posted out today except FMWMU - just waiting on postage address. Mooli/Mr E see you at the match. PM me your numbers and I'll ring or text you.

Due to unexpected fees and expenses, I've made a bit of a loss out of this so just another plug for the link above. I'm wearing my top on a ride from Walney Island to Holy Island, the alternative coast to coast, for a safe water charity in India run by a friend of mine. She got an MBE the same day Gareth Southgate got his OBE. I've got a photo of him with her kids but sadly don't know how to post it up. I will be cycling on the day of the play off final... bad planning or what (Bruce was in charge when I planned it.)

I like the look of that, but I'll need to get someone to take my boy to football. Are you doing the pint or half pint? Oh, and has your top arrived?

Top arrived today. I'm very pleased: good fit and excellent design, with just the right shades and claret and blue. Many thanks for organising this, Mike!
