1. you dont have to ride like a tw*t all the time to enjoy it. I wish i had slowed down and appriciated the views and the whole group thing a bit more.

2. Stay in a B&B, rain is not fun nor are no showers.

3. You cant get around and speak to all the people you wanted to properly, so many people i wanted to chat to properly but never got the chance to.

4. My bike can actually handle in the wet.

I disagree with Neio. No B&B, camping in the rain IS fun.

That for me was the only thing that went wrong with the weekend. I think Viper and I had a niggly feeling that the woman that owns the campsite was going to go back on what she had agreed on us using the showers.

If she'd have told us a couple of weeks before that she had changed her mind we could have sorted something else out.

by the time we got to site on Friday and found out it was to late to sort anything else out. The landlord of the pub who she is married to was absoloutly fuming he was really cross that she'd let us all down.

I thought there were showers!? I certainly remember returning to my tent soaking wet so I assumed I had just had one
