During the first Phil and Friends ride {2001}around the Peak District a mate and I rode my tandem on said event .
However brake fade insued during the descent of Mam Tor into Edale .

Following returning home unscathed another mate drew a cartoon of the hairy moment which i found again the other day . :facepalm: :lol: :shock:
