Woody's unofficial write up!
Well the day started off with a phone call from the Drystonekid saying that he was unable to attend today's ride to due to a trapped nerve in his shoulder! Obviously i was very sympathetic and told him to just man up and just get out there ,ha ! He wouldn't listen though , i told him you'll only end up spending money sat at home on retrobike in the for sale section! (I was right about this seeing his purchases later). I'll give him his due though he did come up to meet us and send us on our way!
So it was left to me to take the remaining butch, tough guys of mrlee and elPedro666 round the delights of Macc forest. A start time of 10am / 10.30am was the aim but pete and his bodily movements had a later start time in mind (see pic below)
Finally we managed to leave the cars ,give DrystonePIKE a wave and get on our way. Pete and Lee have done a few of the trails before so they knew they were in for a few climbs. What we weren't prepared for was the wind ! It did help us on a few sections but others were tough going. Mrlee and his Dawes Nomad with high gearing seemed to be on a mission all of the ride though. He was first up every climb and the fastest on every downhill. We all had a great time , lots of smiles and woop woop's after the downhills. Hope to do it all again soon.
