Back home after taking a scenic route back...I blame the SatNav ;)

Top day out on the bikes, good to catch up with some old faces and some new ones

Excellent organisation Vern & a great route too with a mix of everything on the route

Here's my GPS of the route, listed as 17.6 miles, but looking at the data it registered 1.5 miles at the cake stop, so more like 16 miles in total

Just back to Edinburgh now. A good day it has to be said.

And a few lessons learnt.

I really need to start training more seriously and try to remember I'm 45 years old!

Vern's concept of a bimble is a cruel one, more up than down :D

Yorkshire mud is evil and capable of containing a dreadful stink.

I am capable of being stupid enough to go over the bars twice, in the space of 100 yards!!

Fix my sodding front mech.

Finally the NE and Yorks boys are a tough bunch of sods if all the rides are as uphill as that.

Ah I suspected as much. Given that 3 miles on flat tarmac effectively kills me, I think I would have not got very far today. You all look far too fit.
