Pics from me as promised, now im in a more sober frame of mind (lol)

Didnt take as many as i wouldve liked as it was a bind having to keep getting the camera out of my camelbak, and my pockets were too baggy to keep it anywhere else!

The group at the top of the first 'gentle' two and a half mile 'warm-up' climb..

Image

Image

Image

Where we first got a glimpse at some of the scenery that was to come..

Image

Image

Image

Another breather for a general look around and make sure everyone was intact/bikes were breathing alright (and i discovered my bb didnt like my frame and was making a bid for freedom)

Image

Action shot for Ringo...

Image

Image

Dark clouds and blue skies at the same time..

Image

I do apologise, but all of us seem to have been overcome with temporary illiteracy...

Image

This descent was awesome, albeit a little hairy nearer the bottom, lots of fun..

Image

Image

With a stop-off at the bottom for more banter and some grub..

Image

Image

Here we see Vern trying to escape back to nature..

Image

Image

Image

And at the long awaited beer-stop...

Image

Image

Some needed a beer more than others, simply dumping their rides in bushes and sprinting to the bar..

Image

And last but not least, the crew...

Image

Was a fantastic day out, weather stayed good for us although we got damp as we climbed up and entered the clouds higher up, but thats to be expected.

Dont ache at all today which i expected to given the fact its almost fully flat round here and im not used to big climbs, really enjoyed it, when are we doing it again?

Hugely enjoyable but knackering day for me! Was highly flattered to get BOTR and glad you all appreciated the Ritchey the way I do.

The prize was epic and I'm torn between displaying the pink bottle cage on my desk at work (I've heard showing off your metrosexual side goes down a treat with the ladies) or Karma'ing it to Spudly to match his camera and case...

Was usually last up the climbs and downhills (damn SIDS - pretty sure the horrible clunk was a lack of negative air in t'lower chambers, as they say around these parts and they were topping out on even small rocks).

Even did a bit of business at the end of the ride, as a part of the Co-op car park went all Steptoe...

Can't wait to do it again (albeit quicker next time!)

Anyway enough of my yacking - here's the pics!

Let me at 'em!

Image

Stunning Views all day..

Image

Arghhh me legs!

Image

Modern... but retro in spirit (at least for me!)

Image

Yeah... it's definitely fubarred! Got round though!

Image

ElPeds homage to British engineering, right down to the bottle cage bolts!

Image

Niceeeeeeeeeeee.

Image

Dinners over!

Image

Wasn't keen on the drop to the side on this descent!

Image

The NW v West Yorks v Hull lot, climbing challenge!

Image

Happy chappies at the pub!

Yup I enjoyed that and a good reminder that Yorkshire has three national parks. It's good to see everyone again and we raised an impressive sum for the mountain rescue. The sale of Precious Things has now got me enough bits to finish two builds. Hope to see you all again soon.

Absolutely the best ride out I have had in a long time. Such a chilled atmosphere, wonderful company, great trails , breath taking scenery, the ride had everything for me.

Can't wait for my next foray up north where I am always made to feel welcome.

Thanks to the leaders and organisers etc.


Cheers fellas 8) 8)

Great pics, looks like I missed a classic ride. I'll have to make sure I get out on the next visit to this area, I had a good excuse for missing this one though.
