It wasn't a requirement to buy the worst bike you could, that particular award possibly went to Dave, and I admire his dedication to the cause, the bike simply had to cost £25 or under.

Of course, young Spike could use his for two events, thereby halving the initial cost. Whether he would actually want to endure a second ride on the same bike is another matter.

I don't think the cobra would make another trip around any trail centre without some serious work. A nice Saracen would be good for the next time.

Off to the shed to wash and fettle. If anybody has any anodised blueness......... Seat Clamp? Bolts? End plugs? :wink:

I think this should become an annual event. It means I can keep up at least once a year! :facepalm:

I agree with annually, and I reckon a few more in other parts of the country. (I just want an excuse to buy more bikes)

That'll be the air and general jumping you were doing.

I am looking for a suitable charity for the Focus.
