Excellent ride, thanks to LGF for organising such a scenic route. The rain didn't dampen our enthusiasm. My modern bike didn't fall to bits unlike some other shonky old bike on the ride. A few pics, data tracker screen caps and link if you want to see the full hard core facts and figures.

My neighbour liked Reki's Trek - so I smacked him one.


Vitus is fixed with one very long bolt....
