time for a longer reply now I'm on a proper PC rather than my phone
Thanks for making the 3 of us so welcome
Aaron (Modern Scott) had never done any serious off roading before, but enjoyed himself a lot so will be doing more.
Craig (aka Bobby) on the Retro Trek again was very glad to have come up to do the ride, and was impressed with the trials there, if not with his 15 year old brake pads! He also passes on the thanks for the little bit of modern technology used to fix his snapped chain. Something we didnt no existed after being out of the game for so long - the powerlink!
I also struggled with the old brake pads/cant's as they were some of the steepest downhills I had done since getting back on the bike, so will do some investment in that area. Had a big blow out on the rear coming off the second red run. Thats probably where I damaged the tyre? New tube and off again to get that shot (above) that looks like I'm about to take monster air, but the back wheel probably didnt get any higher than that - lol. Pity close to the start of the blue route with a little more tyre pressure the tube went again. I did have a spare tyre at the car but called it a day and by the time I was back at the car with a clean bike you were all coming back in anyway.
Will come again
Might try Dalby next Sunday all being well.
