Hi Dodge, I'll be travelling down from Cheadle Hulme so yes, I can give you a lift - the bike rack holds 2 bikes easily as well.

Was thinking about travelling down on the Sat evening and going for a B&B on the Sat night so that I'm there bright & early - but I'm not sure that I'm tough enough for a night out in Caaaardifff or (worse still) Newport :D

I had a valid excuse @ GT Prout - I'm horrendously unfit therefore I bow to your superior argument.. :?

And yes if your down on the Sat night might be an idea to get on it (partly on it anyway as I don't fancy hitting the DH on a full tilt hangover)

If you go to Newport you're braver than I am.. Blackwood night is where it's at 8) ...

... if you want the aids...

Don't fancy that too much, how about a nice quiet few beers :D That sounds like a sensible plan...

I was thinking more of a c&*t bit if you want to dress it up Prout you carry on

A few sounds like a plan but it may not be sensible. Is Ben/anyone else up for an inaugural cruddy DH toasting seshaaan??
