On our first run, my tyre came off the rim!!

Never seen that before, it was like my bike had spilled its guts & its intestines were oot!! Eck has that pic!
This happened about a third of the way down the Red route,
First time I have been out on the bike without my pack & pump!
Got the tyre back on the rim and started to walk back, praying for somebody to pass us , to borrow a pump
Naebody did!! :lol:

Anyway , a few from yesterday :wink:

Enjoyed the vid Gary, shame about that big mincer in front of you spoiling your flow at about 1m 10s :D

I really must give the Nevis red a go at some point.

Thats the red in the vid, the pics are from the red too

The video i made of the black consists of 15 seconds of me riding, then i go off the track, push for 500 yds , then announcing that its "fcuking insane" then i turn the recording off :lol: :lol:

the bars look like im on a Honda Cr500 or similar huh 8) 8) :lol:

I have now realised (because of this trip) that trail centres are for me & that I will never get Mr O up to his limits , because im a wuufter! :oops: :lol:

The red is well worth a visit, it'd be tres hard on a rigid frame, but not impossible

Dont even look at the black unless you are covered in bubble wrap :shock: :lol:
