This is what I got, but seem to have 1 name too many as I counted 23 and not 24 riders in the photo (me and Mr. K excluded as we were taking pictures).

sinnett177, mr_ship, Drystonepaul, Woody, Stally, Stewlewis, Andy, Harrycrumb, Neil and son, Elpedro and wife, Crud, Easyrider and wife, Garrema, Shaun, Brocklanders, Beavis, Giant1, Mr. K, Dr. S, Saltiman, Sithlord.

I'll have the first go at the bike/person matching game.
As I was in charge of making head counts I remember counting 23 out and in again, so i'm not sure where the extra name has come from. I did think that sinnett177 made a list when he handed out the welcome packs and maps but...

sinnett177: Team Raleigh Dyna-Tech
mr_ship: Nuke Proof Ti
drystonepaul: Raleigh Dyna Tech
Woody: DeKerf Generation
Stally: Specialized S-works
Stewlewis: Giant Box One retro full susser
Andybag: Grisley Mega 20
Harrycrumb: Parkpre 825
Neil: Trek 950
and son: Scott
Elpedro666: Modern mmmbop
and Kiran: Ibis Alibi
crud: Saracen Sahara Elite
easy_rider: Saracen Traverse Hydrotech
and wife: Kona full susser
Garrema:
Shaun: KHS Ti
Brocklanders: Orange Clockwork LX
Beavis: Marin Pine Mountain
Giant1: Modern Giant full suss nonsense
Mr. K: Mantis Pro Floater lovely retro full suss nonsense
Dr. S: Mountain Goat WTR
Saltyman: Pace RC200 F3
Sithlord: Ritchey P20

Apologies for and mistakes/gaps/sarcasm.
Please feel free to make any additions and corrections. :)

Mr. K: retro full suss nonsense (what was it?) ........
Wasn't that the lovely Mantis?

Giant1: Modern Giant full suss nonsense .......
:lol: :lol: :lol: I'll shame him into sorting some retro out. He had a single speed Ridgeback in the van but didn't have the bottle to be stuck in the same gear.

Of course it was a Mantis. Mr K moved so fast every time I tried to either photograph him or hang onto his wheel on the climbs and descents I never clearly made it out. He rides like a pro y'know... :wink:

Although it pains me to type it - the strangely compelling double act that is Mark and Paul, have a happy knack of arranging top rides with top weather and company... long may it continue!

Memories include:

> severe lack of signage en route to Tosside - expected dayglo markers from the end of the M66...
> people riding rented bikes - what's that about??
> the ice maiden sliding down the first fire road in front of me...
> awesome turnout - although we had to wait for Dr S's Gaviscom to take effect before we could pedal off...
> young Sean cracking under the pressure exacted by the ride leader
> the Mantis random ejector seat - note to self: get some damping in that rear shock
> duck board - with ice :-(
> fag breaks
> lots of titanium hardware on show
> chip butties - still gastronomic bliss after all these years
> easier bottom half that lulled me into a false sense of security and well being for the second, manlier half...
> at last, other people taking snaps!

So, a few black marks earnt here and there just go to prove that, unlike certain holy grails, the quest for the perfect ride must continue for Mark and Paul - would we have it any other way?! ;-)

Thanks to all that turned out - hope to ride with you again.

Mr K

PS. If you want your photos just PM me you email and I'll send you what I have.
