that was an interesting ride, very different to riding the route in the day.

managed to get lost round marker 7/8 on the red route, then find it again at marker 18.

those mudguards were an absolute godsend due to the amount of mud, but now i have the fun taskof cleaning it off my bike :D

That sounds like fun.

I've still not managed to get there in daylight yet though :oops:

If you do arrange anything Andy, it might be the perfect thing to get my shiny new modern dirty :lol:

If people fancy it I could sort out a night ride at the Pines taking in the sneaky off piste bits as well as the best bits of the red route...

That's not mud, that's just a dirty surface.

Need to sort out a seat-stay/caliper judder first but up for this at some point... Work not too far from there, and a lad here at work is a regular night rider at the Pines (They have a fb page too : http://www.facebook.com/groups/269521733059091/)
