Thanks for organising and leading Andy.

Once again good to ride with you all and once again apologies for the mechanical.

Turns out my front mech slipped down the seat tube then twisted itself on my chaimring, snapping the chain in the process.

Another great RB ride out.

Just trying to get the few pictures I took out of the camera, so will post them up when I have.

Nice fine ride :)

My bikes now cleaner after the ride than before it. Result!

Dave, longun has your front mech


A black Ladybird with two red spots. Wish I had manual focus

We all await the ProFlex, I think there is someone at the top of that path
Image
Yes people await in the distance
Image

Here he comes, front mech in hand (well on handlebars)

Last run back to the village, came out better than I thought since I was chasing Chris, one handed with 'tother Chris behind me and it was a touch bumpy in places :D

All and more pics at a higher resolution.

Even higher via pm if wanted


Note to self.
Take it out of widescreen perspective for verticals
Take it out of rapid shot for standing still images, they turn out better.

Sorry about these action stots, the camera card is so slow it wasn't ready for the next photo until a few had gone through shot.

ChrisV40, Fluffy, and Lewis, plus a couple on modern's in the background.

Excellent ride, thanks Andy :D

Nice to catch up with everyone again and to meet a couple of new faces even if they were riding modern bikes with funny looking brakes :lol:

I thought I had taken more pics but these seem to be the lot.

Thanks for starting the aftermath thread Dave, great to see you back out on a bike 8)

It was, as always a pleasure to lead you all round the Binbrook Bimble route on Remembrance Sunday.

Great to see a few more riders turning up for the ride (thanks Dave)

No pics from me this time as I didn't bring my camera & the phone was too slow to capture anything!
