Good to meet you guys, cold as it was that was a few hours well spent. Going back in the summer is a great idea, the place would be ideal to spend all day hopping on and off the bikes, chilling out inbetween with a burger and a couple of beers (might even be willing to tackle the big bing after a few!)

Ah I got the impression everyone did it. I won't feel so bad then.
I reckon UltraMiniKen could do it on his walky bike - he's got more bottle than me.

It'd be easier to call UltraMiniKen, MicroKen.

There was this wee kid there on his 16" wheeled BMX with no brakes who was riding all the scary stuff effortlessly. He even through his weight forward half way down the steepest slope to raise the back off the ground and rolled on the front only :shock: :shock:

All without a helmet, those hoodies must be well protective :lol:
