Great Pics!

I had a great time. I've now ridden a few more tracks in my own back yard.

Those who didn't do the second loop were missing out, Great view.

Cant wait for the next Macc ride, we've got some big hills to show you guys, up and down.

@sinnett177 "Speed of 9" I wish, I only moved up to 8 last year, the S-Works is getting more gears soon tho.

I also had my GPS running

I've just noticed that the map says I nearly touched 50mph, I paused the ride for dinner and must off restarted it in a slightly different location

If anyone is interested in more rides in this area click on my user name after clicking on the link above

Just wanted to say a big thanks to Paul for organising a fantastic ride! Even though we had to give alot of the best tracks a miss cause of the snow , Paul still put a great route together. The Flapjacks and wine gums were lovely , the hospitality on these rides just gets better everytime! It was really good to meet more people from the site and hope to see them again soon!

Thanks to everyone who voted for my Dekerf in the B.O.T.R competition ....it was beginners luck Mr K !! .....I did give you a chance by only entering one bike ! :wink:

Was a brilliant day DrystonePaul ! :D

The pic of 3 that has me at the rear has Andy the no fear Moto X Proflexer in 2nd position I think.

Nice pics BTW. This ride thread seems to have the most pics for a while.

My first one too, cherry popped and I'm getting a banner! Sweet.

The Human Body is an efficient machine.
The GPS/Sporttracks can only estimate based on heartrate, cadence, distance, elevation, weather, wind direction and speed, weight of rider and bike. Calorie estimates are never accurate but I don't think it's far off.
