It's unlikely I'll be able to ride the calendar BCM next year which I was a bit gutted about but this sounds fantastic.  :thumbsup:

Lots and lots - although 6 have been sold so far

Is this another going, going, gone?
Nope, anyone that wants a start will get one - although I'm likely to close the field at 600  ;)  :-*

Sounds fantastic and I'm most certainly in.

Looks like the Bryan Chapman Scenic on steroids.  Lots of bits of Wales not on the Cambrian routes, so hugely tempted. 

Only worry with rides selling out so quick these days is that by the time I've broached the subject with Mrs CET it will probably be full.

you do pick your dates Mark!  >:(

Sounds heavy. Am tempted.  ::-)
I dunno why anybody's doing this!

Maybe.  Lots of interesting new events next year, and this is one of those that has caught my eye (possibly as part of what would be my first Welsh SR, rather unexpectedly in retrospect given how much I ride there).

BTW WTF is Mr Pickwick?  He seems a well travelled chap.

Hmmm, was planning on the BCM - but might do this instead, hmmm... or even ... both.... hmmmm.

Looks fantastic anyway  :thumbsup:
It's a reverse Elvis thing.

I say  :D will make it if I can, sounds great.

Is there a date for BCM 2014 yet?  I can't see one anywhere and am keen not to miss it this year.

A little bairdy has told me it's going to be on the 17th/18th May.

It better be, as I have to go to a wedding on the 10th and would not be happy to miss it.

What on earth am I doing here on this beautiful day?! This is the only life I've got!!

Yes, I do! I've even gone to the trouble of providing not one but TWO sleep controls.

BCM 17th,18th May. "Highly likely to the point of certainty" is what I was told....... from a higher power!
Not 100% until it shows up on the calendar though I guess.
