I think a few of the Bushlove contingent should be there.

Sounds like the first year it was run - frikking cold and zero visibility at the top!

Quite a contrast from bottom to top - more so on the face than in the weather!

While the weather might make it a little unpredictable I'll still head out for a skid. I haven't really ridden at all over the last 2 weeks (since getting knocked off the road bike) but it'll be fun to ride up the hill with some company for a change :)

I have wussed.

I've been on holiday and haven't touched a bike for 2 weeks. The weather sealed the deal... I'm not putting myself through that.

This is going to hurt lots. And be cold. And be windy.

But it is a good cause and is all about the lulz for me.

FYI -

THE HILLCLIMB HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO DANGEROUS HIGH WINDS AND NASTY WEATHER.

Keep an eye out here and in the usual spam and PNP website for the new date.

Damn it..... Today was a good day to die....

I was just about to ask the Godfather about that. Stoked really. Although, I had the new ride built up just in time this morning.
