Life on Mars! What a crazy landscape - as has been suggested, a summer BBQ there would be cracking. Need to go canny wi' the beers though
Using my dodgy brakes as an excuse, I cadged Big Eck and Enid's bikes as often as I could. Eck's beast felt totally alien at first, but it began to come together and make sense, especially after a couple of go's on Enid's 'Dale, which I think strike's a good middle ground between trad XC and full on 'motorbike without an engine'. I probably just have to admit I'm not man enough for the beast, although by the end I was feeling a lot more comfortable on it - magic carpet ride. The Cannondale felt like a better fit for me though.
Had a visit from a couple of Enduro boys, and then DaveDH and mountain board chums showed up to show us all how to get some real air. Mentalists! Honourary mention to the BMX kids, absolutely fearless.
Good to meet rumble (and sorry, the only pic I got of a bike getting some air was you, but all I got were the wheels
), and nutter of the day was Jimi trying that bit of downhill up on the big bings on the bomber. Going by the skidmarks (on the ground, steady!) crash of the day was probably still velo though.
Oh aye, Alec - guess who forgot to give you the Hayes Nine back
Want me to bring it through for you to Glesga next week?
From L-R: JimiH, Big Eck, velo, Enid, rumble and TwatFace.
