If that decent doesn't have water bars every 5 yards then that looks amazing, I take it this is a retro ride. I'm in as long as I'm not working.

Yes there's water bars, but to be frank they force you to keep the speed under control. It's way steeper than it looks in the photo and the drop to the left is a few hundred feet through a boulder field.

Retro if possible, I think we should keep the main calendar runs retro. That said, I just want as many people as possible to enjoy the ride so everyone's welcome on anything.

rescheduling an appointment 2 months off shouldn't be an issue Velo - unless it is the rarely available dental hospital

Not coming to Glen Doll, I'm going to Fat Forth following weekend and that will take my energy and cash reserves so just focussing on that. Maybe another time :wink:
