I can't get internet on computer so can't see most of the pics. Can see one of andy looking completely mental though.

My parents are delighted to have entertained us today, it's what they do best!

Apologies for riding modern today but new bike and all that.

I find it amusing that of the 4 bikes on shakedown runs mine was the only one to let us down. I'll keep an eye on my skewers in future...

Highlights for me were andy's pointed stick, chris long's mountain goat climbing, chrisv's rigid proflex. And best of all, newcomer matt's crash. The only off of the day and it's uphill. Class

I'll try and add my pictures tomorrow.

Anyone up for a recce round broughton woods this coming sunday?

Big thanks to my drivers today!

Now guaranteed thick gloopy mud with extra rain to make it worse, so which idiot thought it was a good idea to leave a brake booster on there :lol:


I wish I could have come, been updating Win7-RC to Win7 Release on laptops most of the day :| and I tell you it's not the most fun thing to do.

2 more things, sorry to chris long for my sister's dog trying to eat him. And i'm really pleased that were getting our act together and trying to ride regularly. We'll have to try and get the lincoln lot out too!
