The Ken's solution to my lack of love life.
Just to point out it didn't involve me doing anything physical to ZZ
Great weekend - the first day is a blur to me especially after my light lunch at duag bridge (that mistake ruined my enjoyment of the next section) I didn't come back to life until the bothy stop, exhausted as I watched you guys dissappear into the distance again and again. The last downhill was scary on badly set up canti brakes, I had to turn into the hill to stop 3 or 4 times. The last flat section was stunning and a great way to finish a ride, sunset on a still loch, deer running about, even the last quarry climb didn't seem too bad.
Great craic on the the night out good food and live music form Martin Stephenson and Co.
Day 2 was a different story, I enjoyed the climbs, the downhills were slightly more suited to a bike with no brakes and I wasn't always
last. I absolutely loved it.
Funniest moments for me?
Schoolboy blazing saddles duet with RobMac.
The fear you all had of my snoring.
Consult the Cock! He'll know where we are - aye right!
Gazz in general - he has a way of making the most normal situation sound funny.
Mr P - I need a biscuit because I'm knackered rouse to hold everyone back while he set up for the 11mile carpark dash.
The supposed need of a rope to cross a river no bigger than my stream of pish. We rode through deeper wider puddles.
Pannier side swap was confusing as hell, I don't recommend it. My pannier did come off on one occasion but that was because I didn't adjust the clips when I switched sides, they were much better than the tesco ones I used on the last trip, they were a bit big for this kind of riding but they will come in handy for camping trips.
I think I need to reassess my colour coordination with my bike, looks a bit too deliberate...
