    Assuming you are based in London as it's Paul's route (who manages DIY's for south) I would advise checking with him as a courtesy, before you submit it.

    My plan next year was the Wessex SR and possibly LEJOG as a group perm, but if it runs as a calendar it would be my best ever chance to do Crackpot, as I certainly wouldn't attempt it DIY.

    @hippy looks like Crackpot will be running as a calendar event in June next year

    Been away for a week and a half on holiday, literally got home from our flight and I headed straight to the plot.

    Another plot holder we get on with, kindly watered it every other day, so it's all doing well but there is so much weeding to do after only a week, I think bind weed is going to be a constant battle this year.

    Currently sat in the green house waiting out the rain, probably won't need to water today!

    @hippy Good to meet you as well! I was the noob with the Albion orange/navy jersey who should have listened to your advice of eating food before bed but couldn't stomach the idea ...

    I was on the train with you on Friday to Maidenhead, also didn't realise you were 'on here' either. Good to meet you well done on getting round, sounds like it went well.

    Yeah no worries really, few niggles, but nothing too bad, I stuck a new saddle on the bike Thursday which was hight risk but after my 400 I didn't want to use the same one again. It worked out well though fortunately.

    Jim and I are getting to be experts in not rushing round and finishing comfortably these days.

    Well done and congratulations.

    I found that pretty tough going at times with the weather so chapeaux for doing it fixed.

    Pretty sure I heard 'nicely rolling route' previously where I felt it was less rolling and more straight up lumpy at points!

    I got two hours in a bed (1 hour sleep) and finished with only an hour to spare. I spent too much time in controls than I normally would, but it was well worth it, at times I felt like a mini-tour seeing friends.

    The food was excellent, I only got my wallet out once all weekend to buy an ice-cream and you can't praise the volunteers enough, I thought they were the making of this ride.
