This ride deserves the title "Epic!", in places it was rockier than coed-y-brenin, and in others had more water than the river Tees, and inbetween was filled with pure Yorkshire Gold (that's mud to me and thee :lol: ).

Many thanks to the good Dr.S for guiding us around what was an impressive route with a real old school feel to it.

The best thing though was the atmosphere, everyone was having a laugh and enjoying the challenge, I had so many comedy "over the handlebar" moments and "toppled over sideways still clipped into the SPD's" that I really didn't care, just got up, laughed, and got back on the bike again :lol:

Some good pictures taken by Vern too, I will browse them all later, with a big smile on my face :D

I think it will be the Peaks this month and then something around 1st-2nd October matey. Either something on the moors or something up this way with MacRetro. Simonside mentioned a cracking route in the Cheviots that involves a cafe and a pub. Probably some riding in there too at a guess.
