Waiter's outfit, massive magic mushroom and penny farthings. Just another normal MacRetro ride...

Great to get back to the Drum. Weather was not the best, but didn't spoil the ride. Red route recce - Wet roots and tight corners after the short initial climb. Very unforgiving, right in at the technical deep end stuff, we'll have to make sure folks are taking it easy at the start especially if wet. Cam coped really well, including nailing the 'are you a man or mincer' rooty drop towards the end of the red with a bit of guidance from dad. He was even up for a black route recce after we'd finished the red. Reckon we should do the final bit of the black as part of our morning Drum ride, rather than ride up the Castle drive, tarmac being a pretty poor way to end any ride.

Great day out gents, as always.

Today it was very good I enjoyed the red trail and I felt like doing the black trail as well. Did you all have a great time?

I still think that I have better forks than old man forks! I like the picture of the old bike. I loved the day and would do it again.

I enjoyed that 8)

I dragged a townsend hybrid in SS form around the Drum hopefully proving that the Drum is SS friendly and indeed teaching me that large wheels do work. As a result in a conservative party style U-turn I might entertain a 29er in my repetoire :roll:

Great fun, thanks all :wink:

Gazz found a tramp in the woods then though he'd have better uses of his old coat :?

If you look very carefully you'll just about see Velo hiding in the undergrowth on your extreme left................does he look a bit like Robbie Williams or is it just me :shock:
