I dont know about calling it 'And the winner is', more like 'Put your hands up if you've got saddle sore and sunburn' :lol:

Oh, and I can safely say after spending all day riding it, that Stumpjumper is the best bike it the world.


Ever.




Period.

I 'normally' do this ride on a Zaskar which is waaaay more suitable...

The Overbury's high BB and lack of sleep left me a little knackered with sore thigh tops and knees and was having to think about my sentences. It was quite difficult talking to people.

Its a good long route. It gives me ideas for another Sunday day out.


My name is now mud with the WAGs though.

To me when following you it just looked like your saddle was too low, and you weren't getting a proper leg extension.

I could have done with being home a little earlier.........! There were a few bits that needed doing at home :oops:

Mrs Reki was cool about me getting home 2 hours later than expected. I did walk through the front door holding a chinese take-away.

This is the data track log for the ride up until just after the pub stop. I suggest using ffwd feature to speed things up. Otherwise you will be watching it for 4 hours.
