    It looks like we have twenty five riders signed up for the Sportive on Monday!
    With all the twenty places assigned by the club a while ago remaining filled at this time, on this occasion, the additional five riders will need to enter via the SFA web site (I think some have already…).

    It also looks like transportation issues have been sorted out, so unless anyone pipes up in the meantime, there is no need for anyone to stop at The G on the morning – please head straight to Marden, aiming to be at the hall for 0830.

    If you do need a lift, act now!!

    See you Monday!

    Still waiting for a response from Phil Gray and Treasurer Lee Powell.
    If I don’t hear, I assume you are IN… OK?

      Marek – think I’ve just agreed to pick you up, then Graham and Dave. I could fit one more in, but the Eltham-Bickley massif looks sorted.

    I’m in and can offer a couple of seats in my car, an estate, although the riders would need to supply bike carriers that fit on alloy aero roof bars. I mean I have the bars, but not the cycle carriers.

    Failing that one rider and their bike in the boot. I could prob do two people and bikes in the car instead actually, front wheels off and a few strategically lobbed blankets. Knockholt and back but happy to go via the G and collect people / then drop them off on the way home, if necessary. Alistair.

    I’m not in the ‘Hot 20’ but would like to attend. I’m just not organised!

    I will be attending hopefully, I think John Caine is jumping in the car with me.

    I’m definitely on. I also have a big car with five racks, so happy to take people down, probably with a pick up at the Green. Don’t forget club tops are a must if you are in the club funded slots. We must also get a picture done of all 20 at the Hall, after we meet.

    Hi Tony. Thanks for all the organising. Simon and I are definitely still doing this sportive. We’ve done it before and I think your estimation of journey time is correct. We have room for one person (and bike!) in our car. Cheers, Claire

    Alan Else replaced by Ian Daley some time ago…

    Hi Bill,

    Not all applicants marked themselves as attending – bit of confusion here… will do better next time! I have two reserves – Colin Pearson (who I believe has entered himself) and you. Stay tuned – with 20 people, things may change!

    Hi Tony.
    Can you confirm who the hot 20 are?
    I was in the first 20 to show attendance on the website event as directed to, but my name didn’t appear on a subsequent list.
    Should my name be on the list?

    Dear All,
    With a little over a week until we take part in the SFA Sportive, I’m just checking round to make sure everyone is OK for the 7th. If we have any other participants not in the ‘Hot 20’ please put a message here also.
    Please see the website for directions / where to park / the route: (http://www.sanfairyanncc.co.uk/event-2783552)

    Can I suggest we meet at the Hall between 0815 and 0830 (according to my map, it takes 45-50 mins to get there, but I will be guided by those who have done this event in the past – please comment!). We can then be ready to start as soon after 0900 – groups can be formulated on the day…

    Last question: Transport
    Does anyone need a lift down there? / anyone have space to take some bikes and riders? It seems a little silly to all drive down individually, so I thought I’d put it out there…
    (I don’t have a rack, but I could squeeze one more bike and person in with me and the Idol)…
