    Timing: Meet 0845 for 0900 departure
    Duration: Long (approx 3-4hrs)
    Difficulty: Mostly Blue/Moderate with some Red/Difficult
    Ascent: yes, some long-ish climbs
    Tea Stop: Café stop half-way round (Devil PunchBowl)
    Average Speed/Pace Style: Social Pace
    Distance: Approx 25 miles
    Route: To the Devils Punch Bowl via Gibbet Hill
    Ride Organiser: Greg Driver (drop me an email if you have any queries regarding the ride)

    Hope that you can make it along.
