Andy he's only just got home and you picking things of his bike :lol:


11 starters not 10
8 at the pub and Stephan, Dave and Mike didn't get that far.

I was knackered early on, so didn't talk much when riding just concentrating on turn the old cranks.

Bit hot too.

I'm still knackered and need to sleep,

But if can anyone answer why Dave bike ridden by Dave falls to bits, and Dave's bike ridden by Mike doesn't ?

Cheers for organising another epic ride Chris!

24 miles & 2314ft of climbing, which is more mileage and climbing than the ride Kaya took me on a fortnight ago on the N.Yorks Moors :shock:

Gps log here: http://connect.garmin.com/dashboard?cid=14623610

Great to see so many out on such a perfect day for biking, I dunno if it's sunburn or nettles making my arms and legs tingle now

Hope those who left early made it home safely

My brain hurts a bit so here's some pics whilst I try to think of something else to post...

Odd that the GPS log link isn't working for you, it's set to public not private in the privacy settings :?

I've also linked to it from my Facebook, does that work for ya?

Yes the Facebook link is working fine Andy.

Stephan decided he had enough as we climbed out of South Cave and decided to make his own way home, Ben was going to catch up with him this evening.

It was really good to see you and Mike out again Dave, lets try and make it a regular thing :wink:

How about you putting on a local ride, the one we did from your house a couple of years ago was good.

Well my arm has gone down a bit now, and is scabbing over nicely :D I think there'll be the mother of all bruises in a day or two.

Anyway, here are my pictures, not as many as I thought I'd taken, and non of any gates :roll:

Sorry about the crappy picture, the sunshine upset my camera. Looks much better in the flesh

Thanks again for a great ride, even if it did hurt so much. Legs like lead this morning. Can't wait for the next one though.
