Guys, in case ye didn't see it it's a rolling start - you basically start whenever you sign-on on the morning - not what it says when you sign up online (10am start for the 100km). Will aim to be over there early if any interest in coordinating a group ride. Won't be murdering myself on the ride though.
Marie - ah yes, I think I remember that year, I bailed at Laragh into a hot bath in order to thaw out. All going well I plan to be over in Blessington out 8:30 unless I have to work Sat morning (which I will know by tomorrow lunchtime anyways). So 8:30am it is and I hear the weather will be glorious.
