Nice ride today - as always on the retrobike rides very friendly and sociable :D

After I left you guys at the cafe I rode back down to Kennford via St. Andrews lane, took a tumble and cracked my carbon bars.....oops!
My knee is also a bit swollen - but of course that's less important than the bars :lol:

Ha I n00bed out

I posted my aftermath comments in the organisation thread :oops:

I turned up late; so missed most of you guys

But I had an awesome time, first time off road for over four years

An I did it on an 18 year old bike

And took an off!

Waiting keenly for the next one!

Thanks to all involved it was great to put faces to the weird aliases!

You bugger GM! :lol:
Hopeless trying to upload pics on my laptop so will get mine up tomorrow.

A cracking day out and great to put more faces to names. This was my first ride at Haldon and I really enjoyed it. Some really nice flowing singletrack and great cafe (it got the AEC seal of approval, as GM's pics prove :lol: )
My mate Paul was really suffering with his war wounds on the way home. Fair play to him though as we did the loop again in the afternoon....and he came a cropper again! No inuries this time though :D

Roll on the FOD now!
