It now means we can get someone in front that will give us a challenge and go fast.

Yep, suppose I will have to show how it's done :mrgreen:

Hi all you Storm Troopers, just a quick update, AMCQ46 is not available for this meeting, also one or two people that normally attend are also not available.
We still have a group of 20 plus coming so if everyone turns up it could well be that we run 2 groups, therefore I’m looking for some volunteers to be lead riders and tail gunners for the rides out, please note that it is better that a lead rider as some knowledge of the area, or a Sat Nav but not essential.
As most of you know, historically I’m quite happy to tail gun the more progressive group that like to cover ground quickly, but on this occasion if it comes to it I’ll lead the said group, however please note because I value my licence I will be adhering within reason of the speed limits apart from the od blast where appropriate, so if anyone else wants to take the task on that’s fine with me.
At the end of the day I’m willing to take any position up, and I already have a tail gunner for the group that want to do a more leisurely sightseeing pace, so come on guys lets have some hands up please.

Kev I am happy to lead the leisure group, we can sort out the route at a later date. About time I had my turn.

Kev,
If your leading the fast group at a more respectable pace, I'll tail gunner that one for you.
Bud and the rest of the crazy crew can then blast round in between us?
Don't hassle me
I'll get there at some time

Not at All, I just find it amusing watching people going into corners far to fast and wrestling their way round.
Plus gives me loads of on the bike training following faster riders.

Thanks bazza696, grumufrog and Steve97 looks like we're all sorted out now, I'll sort a route out in a kind of figure of eight so some can peel off when they've had enough and the die hards can carry on.

I'm pretty sure the bunkhouse is full, but there's still the option to camp at £5 per night or other than that there's plenty of B&Bs in Rhayader.
