In the dark hours before the dawn pilgrims can likely ask themselves…
“Why am I out of bed?”
“Why am I far from home?”
For a neophyte regretful questions may become insistent. Anyone who encouraged them to roll into the Essex night may become the target of bitter recrimination.
If you talk to someone who’s never ridden a DD, or 200 km, or dusk to dawn through a summer night, outline the opportunity but be sure to leave the decision clearly with them.
NEVER SEEK TO PERSUADE SOMEONE TO RIDE THE DUNWICH DYNAMO FOR THE FIRST TIME.
