I ditched the jacket before I went out. No rain. Was really dry trails too, its good for drainage.

Nice to see some new faces, hoping to get to most of the SW rides now.

Had an embarrissing off at about 5 miles an hour on a steep climb but that aside, was a good laugh.

And 3 of the 8 were Saracens! Happy days!

All bikes on display were very nice too. Maybe for the next I'll learn to go clipped in then I can swap over half way through.

ChrisG has the award for quickest mechanical of all time. In the car park pre-ride! No pain no gain though hey?!
