Carrying an 80kg of cider keg in a race between Bath and Bristol.

Take up the challenge.  From the Bath end of the cycle path to the Full Moon Cider Festival Stokes Croft. Bring your cargo bike, trailer, or bristolpedalrevolution.co.uk will have 6 of their new Euro Boxer Bike Trailers available for hire (proceeds to Bristol cycle festival, book online). 18+

Meet at 1500, tomorrow Saturday 23 September at the Bath end of the B+B Railway Path.

madsolutions@gmx.net or www.bristolpedalrevolution.co.uk

edit:
I am informed that lighter 25kg kegs are also available.  For Juniors, surely? Wink

First to finish, by a good margin but with the exception of the tandem pair it wasn't a race.  They were going faster than me too.  However, the tandem riders decided to throw it in when descovered a distinct lack of brakes.

Apparently the Berridge thing is a reference to a chap in 190? who carried 150lb of stuff from Bath to Bristol on his cycle in 1.5h or summut.
