For anyone that is interested. This is to remember three riders killed, one being one of my best mates! :(

I'd like to be there, but being the unfortunate victim of being hit lat week has me out sadly. Hope it all goes well for all riders and that there is no trouble for anyone.

Sorry Oxford, I missed that! :(

Hope things are not to bad for you.

Look for a Wheeler Route61 my avatar and tap me on the shoulder Kernowman and my son will have an old Shimano road bike (white) beside me. :)

I'm planning to go - I'll be the old, fat, bald grumpy dude on the black '85 Peugeot.

I'll be there as well, short, fat and bald on an Avanti Giro 3 with NRG jersey on.

UNfortunately my job means I am faced with the aftermath of these incidents too often now days, so any way to raise awareness for cycling safety is a great idea.

Indeed there was. Pierre and I were there and we enjoyed ourselves. It was a good well-organized ride with friendly people.

Yeah and thanks 8) to the two lots of riders, that stopped to make sure I was ok, when both sets of quads decided to cramp up and I had to walk for a bit. :oops:

It was great to get out with a big bunch of riders who were all very nice to talk to. If only that dead hare hadn't taken out one of the Ipswich riders it would have been injury free by the looks.
