Doesn't look like anybody started a thread for this, so here's some photies... sorry about the quality, ancient retro camera.

Ready to trundle
From L-R: Zigzag, Velomamiac, JimiHendrix, kaya, Paulieb, Davy-g, The Rockhopper (Stuart), Simonside Resident, Kaiser, Matt, Sean, Haggis, The Ken

Kaiser flashing Macretro gang-signs doon the Kirroughtree hood

From L-R: Jimi, Velo and haggis. Only one of these riders would make it round

Retrobike hardmen hiding from first rain of the day - start of the Rocky Road.

After much mincing, Kaiser 'conquers' McMoab...

haggis not stopping for photies though

Image
The Ken

Stopped at the edge of the A712 after the superb Black Craig and Talnotry Hill

A great ride, with some very technically challenging stuff, even with the amount of mincing I was doing, still no idea how I didn't fall off. Wouldn't have fancied it retro :D Now if I could just swap Glentress black for this...

I velo got 1/4 of the way round the red route and then gear hanger snapped :( Bodged a single speed fix and returned to carpark rendevousing on route with Mark (JimiHendrix) after he face planted and boogered his hand further up the trail from my mechanical.

I think us two were the only incidents, everyone else had a great time :wink:

The English version
First of all can I thank every body who made the trip to Kirroughtree, It was a day to remember 8) The ride looked like it Was going to be one of the largest of the year (In theory :lol: ) As it turned out there were only 13 riders on the day, There was more to fall by the way side as well with broken bikes & broken bones (maybe ?) :shock: :shock:

So here's some pics for your pleasure

The old girl really struggled on this one Gaz, but the bike was fine :)
Need to get fitter, bad back this week didn't help. I skipped a few of the technicals and all the big drops.

A big thankyou to my person guide and motivation trainer Davy-G, I don't think I would have made it round with otu the encouragement, and now I know exactly what a burst sofa is like.

I didn't manage to drive home - I had to crash at my parents again - didn't get there till after 10pm - we had left newton stewart at 6.30 :shock:
