My clumsy gloved fingers meant that the decent into Corfe didn't record :roll:

Thanks to Gravymonster for the gopro chest mount! First attempt with it, and now know I need to tilt it more :D


That looks cool mate! That last downhill looked awesome sorry to have missed that bit! (my arse does look big tho! :lol: )

That last hill was gnarly! Lots of roots, didn't help with Lumos shooting off to the left in front of me as he had a slight technical (safely BTW). That unnerved me though, as well as when I hit a root drop off while landing the previous one. Bottled it a bit :oops:

From left to right:

Wookiee, Stocko, Pyrotim, Lumos2000 and Makster was taking the pic!


Thanks Buddy, just wanted to see how 'in shape' you all were - see if i could keep up :oops:


you'll keep up with me no worries. TBH ive done that route a lot in my time but ive had a long time off the bike recently. that was probley the hardest ive found it.

I normaly do the same route in the other direction, short climbs and long downhills.

Just hope I can remember all the little turn offs. I know the main bits of it, but we may take the odd wrong turn
