Thanks to all that made this such a day full of memories and stunning pictures.
It was a sunny autumnal with a stiff breeze that turned into a tail wind to help us back to the café.

Excellent day out. Very dirty klunker has just been slung in the garage for now. I will tackle it in a few days when I can move freely again. Curry ordered and photos downloading. Should have them up soon.

Thanks to everyone who came and made it another special day. Extra big thanks to Uncle Vern for yet another cracking route and smooth runnings.

What a fantastic ride, apart from the wind the weather was spot on, good to see old and new faces and I still don't know how I managed to go over the bars and land on my feet running without falling over :oops: :oops:

Top day out as usual, thanks very much for the excellent organisation Vern.
That route had some of the best scenery and views I have ever seen on the moors.

Great to meet some new faces too and the discussions about next years rides was very encouraging.

Better get my bike washed in the morning I reckon, threw it in the shed and went straight out tonight.

You need to get to Yorkshire for a ride Gazz, great tracks on the moors, though Kaya is a hard taskmaster with his routes.

Looks so easy from above
In total a short, yet amazingly long 12.5m ride (including hike ;)) in total

(At least I think this was the route, my best estimate)

That ride knocked 7 shades of crap outta me. Honestly I feel like I've been mugged, beaten and left like a dirty rag in the street. :-)

My leg today. This makes it look better than it is

Image

My thigh. (nowt rude in this pic)

Image

That's the bits you can see. My left ankle isn't twisted, but I feel like that dude in Misery who has his ankles smashed. There's something badly wrong with my right shoulder, I'm walking with it hunched like I live in a church in Notre Dame. My Haro ruined my hands and my arm which feel like they've been run over with a car.

I've never fallen off so much in a ride. I hope someone posts the video of me coming off on that steep bit because I've paid to see that clip with pain many times over!!

I'll be there next time though!!!!!

If its any consolation Rob it did look quite an impressive crash from where I was standing, some nice trophies you have there too.

The ride took it out of me too but I was out on the bike again at 8.00 this morning and felt loads better after a few easy miles :)

A belated thanks to everyone involved for a great day out. Bloody hard work but I thoroughly enjoyed myself and I'd probably do it again - once I've had about 6 months to recuperate :)

It was, often quite literally, a steep/uphill learning curve for me on my first "proper" trip out on the bike in the best part of 10 years, thanks for letting me tag along and making me feel so welcome.

I have a .gpx file of the day if anyone wants it.

Just got back on line at work, seen the photos and can't stop smiling!
Nice to meet everyone, I look forward to the next one but by god that was a hard 12 miles! Big thanks to Kaya and Dr S, I now have a new screensaver. Rob, I think I must have cheated and come down on the grass.
Top day out.

I did take a huge chip of paint out of the top tube and the near NOS XT thumbies I put on now look, errr, well used. Maybe even tatty.....

Doesn't matter, no point in mincing round to save a few ££££'s on resale value, gotta be ridden properly!!

Is there going to be a 36th Anniversary ride as well? It could be a yearly klunk :wink:

Probably wait for the big 4-0.

Mind you, i hope to be in Fairfax for that one. 8)

Plenty more quality rides to come in the meantime.

Lesson to myself , must practice going downhill faster, most of my little lie downs were down to going too slow. If anyone's interested in a longer but less strenous ride then I'd be happy to sort something out in the Dales after I get back from Arran, won't be quite so tight on the retro rules and say as long as its 10 yrs old your welcome, let me know.
