:lol: Not great is it!!

Here's today's epic. Similar stats to Long Mynd - 31 miles, 5000ft climbing. At least we didn't have a threat to have our bike tyres slashed on Long Mynd :lol: Thanks to Paul for the route and guided tour.:D

That's 9500ft in a week, and if you add Ticknall in twice then you must have passed the 10k mark :shock:

Mat: Like the graphic. June dates seem OK for me.

Thanks Rob 8)

Here is the Sherwood Pines Ride thread...

http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=143627

It is a bit nerve racking proposing something now that there is a national series...fingers crossed :shock:

That was some route Ed. Who was slashing tyres? I bet you didn't ss it. Watched the day turn from grey drizzle to warm and blue and became progressively envious.

Mat: Have shoved my name on the Pines list :)

Anyone: HTC Desire or Samsung Galaxy S ?

Evans are getting into 29ers.....

iphone 4... :wink:

Jodie has a Desire and it's really good but there is something about the iphone...

I have to say that the desire doesn't feel that solid to me...maybe a galaxy might feel better built.

Android is good though (operating system) and it has some cool cycling apps!

:D Exactly.

Samsung not as well built as Desire, but slimmer, lighter, better screen and better specced. Bigger battery and much better life (I believe).

He did. My legs hurt for him.

It was a great ride, despite the vicious headwinds, overpriced flapjack and threat of slashed tyres.
