Good God.

I feel genuinely awful that some of you travelled for that, 24hrs earlier and we'd have had a great day out in the hills rather than an hour long fight for survival.

I was suitably impressed that the only guy not running thumbshifters was the one with no gears anyway. Not a suspension fork in sight and lots of cantilever brakes. Proper retro chaps.

Time for a 'West Mids Hardcore' banner for the magnificent seven I think :)

Foul weather but a fun hour none the less :D

Lots of thumbies and one modern S/S which took the theme of getting rid of all that is useful on a bike one step further by loosing its chain :roll: ;)

I thought I would post here, as it might prompt anyone who'd rather forget this ride into joining me next sunday for an even better one!!

If it would stop raining it might be good!!

New thread here for next sundays ride if anyone is interested.
