Titania is a lovely name!

I have yet to meet and name my steed...

It's a Mission Cycles Tribrid. The basket can hold large amounts of gin.

Haven't really had a chance to get our on her yet (other than a quick spin round the cul de sac). Picked her up on Saturday but needed a new seat post and clamp - the post was easy enough to get hold of but no-one locally had the right sized seat clamp, so that had to be ordered on line. Work has been hectic as well. Planning on getting out on her properly this weekend.

You have indeed. I can't decide whether I want to ride from Essex to Edinburgh and back, or want to be the sort of person who might be able to ride from Essex to Edinburgh and back.

This year I'll be volunteering, so I've got two or three years to make up my mind. I've been posted to St Ives for the Sunday rush, and then I'm due to go back to Debden for the finish.

@LowlifeDes - have you heard from Tim yet about arrangements? I've had a couple of emails from St Ives, but nothing from Debden. I'm not as hardy as I once was, so I'd quite like to book a cheap hotel room!
