Yep that's Rob 'unflappable in the face of potential disaster' rc200ti.

Looks like I missed out on a great day's riding. Well done. :)

Great pictures, sorry to have missed this.
Spent the day walking in Sherwood Pines with the family, they want to go back next weekend on bikes, so all is good.
Great weather for your ride, I recall those trails around Ticknall being heavy going in the wet.

well a fantastic day out - a chilly wind, but sunny all day. We had a great day's riding - the ground was more or less dry letting us make the most of playing in the woods and having fun downhill. Amazingly no mechanicals although the thorn in Rob's front tyre looked threatening :shock: (but came to nothing). Not too many pics as we were having too much fun and it was too chilly to stop for long. :D

Nice to see a couple of new faces, too.

We'll try and make this a regular location as there's so much to explore around Ticknall, so even if you didn't come this time we'll do another soon.

Don't forget we do night rides most Weds/Tues if you want to join us :D

A most enjoyable day, even if I did start half way through.
