Come in number 268

Your time is up!

Thats official now, then, my number is issued and I'm signed up. No going back now.

The bad news is that the Etape rumours I had thought inevitable have now begun to surface. Only the Ventoux or Alpe d'Huez could possibly have tempted me to do another Etape, and it looks like I will miss out on theVentoux next Summer. Rumour has it that next years Etape will be from Montelimar to Mont Ventoux. I'll continue to watch those rumours, but I won't be going. There aren't enough brownie points on God's Green Earth for me to swing that one!

I guess that I'll have to pencil in the Beaumes de Venise - Mont Ventoux Sportive for another year.

I'm really interested to see how you get on. It sounds like a great event. If all goes well with the Etape in 2009, I fancy this event or maybe the London too Paris ride in 2010. But I think I'm getting ahead of myself.

Ah Mont Ventoux it is Clive, all the best for LEL. Might see you at some sportives next year.

hey Clive!
nice to see that the challenge continues with the LEL - I'm now officially one of your followers!
I'm going to do the Etape - I'm trying to work out a cheap option at the moment. (Is there such a thing?)
Hope to see you at some of next years events
Take care
Karen
