Absolutely. Most enjoyable...lovely sunset...loved the down hill singletrack sections through the woods and by the rocks...rigid riding is great :D :D :D

Couldn't find an open Chip Shop on the way home though so I'm eating stale Bombay Mix to keep up my strength...still the car worked so that's a bonus :roll:

Looking at my signature looks like we did have both 13th and 16th down for night rides. I guess we need to make a decision.

We did. It was the usual Ticknall kind of stuff, but the clear evening sky was so unexpected after the constant showers and wind. The trails were quite compacted and fast, not a lot of mud, and it really seemed like the end of winter and the beginning of a summer of great riding. No punctures or mechanicals. Great fun. You and Rocky would have rounded things off nicely.

All the best for everything and I'm sure bike-hire's cheap in Cuba.

...and you'll be very welcome.
You've probably gathered from our part of the site that our fitness levels and ages vary wildly , all capabilities are respected equally, and it's great to share an enthusiasm.

Ticknall has many routes many of which are regularly ss'd . We tend to choose a route suited to the bikes , riders and weather.

Keep an eye on Orange71's rides dates for the evening rides and if you fancy a potter round on a weekend let me know as it's my local patch.
