Good ride last night, mostly down to Jango's excellent off-road novice crash course, the only crash was myself going over the bars when demostrating how NOT to ride over a log (sore ribs this morning). I think Kat really enjoyed herself and she did far better than I could have expected, we did all the singletrack including the berms and technical sections. Big thank you to Kev for helping out.

Just bruising :roll: , I hit the bar end as I went over, silly low speed crash, too busy looking at what Kat was doing to notice the log I should be lifting the front wheel over. :oops:

Amazing, how did he ever imagine that staying in the saddle and just pedaling would be the way to ride that??? :lol:
