Looking unlikely that I'll make this one. Don't wait around if I'm not there by 10:30 :-(

Thanks Tim for organising, Jim and Matt for leading and Coomber for the lift really enjoyed it even if my post baby fitness is shocking!

Great to see you chaps and nice to meet you Matt. Unsure on haldon but will be at another ride soon!

The route if anyone wants to see...

EDIT - bum, just realised the profile bit underneath included my trip there and back, the loop was actually just over 12 miles.

Flippin' heck, that's clever Matt & good photos. Thanks for turning out guys, shame the conditions were a bit claggier in parts than when I did the recce ride on Friday.
Stu, my bike isn't a Diamond Back unless you know different - I've seen an identical frame badged as a Claude Butler so it's prob. just some generic thing - believe it's Tange MTB tubing though & well worth the £4 I paid down the recycling ctre!
Let us know about that bike jumble Matt!

Tim, the Forest of Dean national series ride on 12th Oct is a change of venue which is why I hadn't spotted it. Have signed up as was hoping to get to FoD this year & the national ride in 2011 was brilliant.
Would have to miss the 13th Oct Haldon ride though.
