Hi Andy,

do the 'normal' chain gang rules apply? i.e. no stopping for punctures or mechanicals unless serious (self sufficiency is essential).

Yes - self sufficiency is required - apart from mechanicals you may also wish to bail out after a while - I did this a few years ago when they used to run them, the first two I made it about halfway and then just pottered back at my own pace until I was fit enough to stay with it. John Johnston has initiated the rides, lets get supporting them and see how they develop.

If John Johnston has initiated the rides I look forward to riding back from Cromford on my own!
