  1. Bump

    As this is now fast approaching, and not having done it before, I was
    wondering what time and where we are going to meet.

    Who's Going so we know who to wait for?

    MEETING

    I suggest we meet at the car park here http://tinyurl.com/5chqbt

    Assuming 3 hours to walk up and aiming to get to the top for 4.30-5.00
    then I reckon we need to be leaving the car park at 1.30pm at the
    latest.

    Say meet at 12.30-1.00? Should be enough faffing time! Best get some
    food down us beforehand as well. I'll be snacking in the car as I have
    a 5 hour drive!

    WHAT TO BRING

    Uni / Pads / Gloves / Helmet / lots of water / Tools / Puncture repair
    kit / Food etc

    I'll also take a waterproof jacket and a light fleece as you never
    know. Best to check weather on Friday before we leave. I've done it in
    blistering sunshine one year and a snow blizzard the next.

    WEATHER

    Fingers crossed for good weather and a perfect sunset! Although sunset
    is at 9.30 so we will likely be down by then ;)

    best to check on Friday for the weekend )
