LPD Volunteers needed - as this picture shows, many hands make light work

We urgently need volunteers for Mon 4th June (AM only) to collect in any signs which have been left out and to tidy away the post event kit. At the moment there is just Nick Thompson and me!
 If you can help on the Monday after, even if its only for an hour or so, PLEASE LET ME KNOW ASAP.
LPD 2018 Volunteer Update - LPD minus 25 days & counting.

Hi guys - with just 11 days before the pre-event volunteer briefing (Sun 20th Mat @ The Narrowboat) we still need 2, preferrably three marshalls for Skipton Town Centre.

Come on ...... I know youre out there!

We certainly did!! Great fun chasing you up Park Rash Tara.. What a fantastic day!!

Thanks for the add - hope to join the club and get out with you soon. Once Ive recovered from last weekend ...
This year I have cycled just under 400 kms. Ran just over 400 kms. 
On my new Tripster commuting to work I am averaging around 28 kmh on these tyres. I have come to the definitive conclusion that running is definitely good for cyclists. !!!

I agree Karl completely, I've also found singlespeed works a treat as well for getting the legs strong on limited mileage, I'm over a thousand miles behind on previous years yet alot stronger.

......and hilly cycling is good for fellrunning too. Rubbish for flat speed though!

Karl, if you ever fancy an early morning spin give me a shout. Tuesday morning breakfast rolls are still a thing, me, Sean Louis McKibben, Stephen Hannigan and Adam Winthrop are all out most Tuesdays at 6am.

Love to but I set off for work at 6:15. 😬😬
