Filed for later... well apart from that one of me :oops: Still expecting a few more beezers to add to the collection too.

Just finished cleaning the bike:

What a great day! Plenty of banter and the comedy moments were mostly off bike for a change. We even foiled the weather with the shonky MacRetro 'gazebo of love'. Ultimately enjoyed the riding, although I was pretty dubious about the course after the short first lap. Still too much fireroad for me though, sitting down and grinding on laps 2 & 3 just killed my back. Really pleased with the bike and tyres though, the 29'er was great on the couple of long downhills, just spun it up and away it went.

Jamie, hope the car is sorted now - you're trio put on a pretty good show.

Did I mention yesterday that I hate tree roots* :evil: which for a former arborist's an odd thing. (* - especially muddy tree roots on steep ground)

Might do this again, in which case will get used to that sort of terrain better first.

Breakfast in Fort Bill today with the remaining MacRetros and then a gentle roady route up Glen Nevis and back - proper Scottish Surfacing - Tar MacCadam :lol: Ye Canny Whack It :D

Also picked up a leaflet with some very interesting MTB routes on it - one a Big Country Exploit of 65km - will explore further.

Pics.....................

And finally, more Bike Baptists, unwilling to wait 50minutes in the bike wash queue, take to the river

....and if only my camera battery hadn't packed in - I'd have a crackin' photo of random girl taking a header into that river, not especially deep but it was funny :lol:

tree roots are crap by the way :D

watch out for the rather dashing macretro rider at the start of the race (53 secs) and the burd I was trying (and failing) to chat up on my final lap (103 secs).
