Again, thank you to you all for coming along. A good turnout, weather not too mad and the route seemed far easier this year!

Completely hopeless at putting names to faces so I leave you to fill the blanks and let everyone know who was who and all that.

Unsurprisingly with our high technology modern bikes, not one mechanical was had despite the harsh conditions at the pub...

Must ride backwards next time to get an equal tan on the other side of my arms. Great day out. Thanks.
Names to faces: I'm the one who insisted on splashing through all 4 muddy puddles on the hugely heavy and unnecessarily over-suspended Specialized FSR.

I'm not sure of the mileage andy.....I would say 25 miles but my sore arse would suggest 125......then again Matt did stop me with my dual controls in the lay-by at Corby and try to take advantage of me......

try??

Sounds like he succeeded!!

I'm still on quite a high, such a good ride, and feel quite fresh to be honest, apart from the sore arse!! (that lay-by was busy)
Such a great bunch, perhaps we have the makings of 1 or 2 teams for next years Mayhem!! Really want to do it next year now.

Hope to see you all around Grafham soon.

:D
