Brilliant ride yesterday, if there were such a thing then velocitizen would get rider of the ride for managing to get round on slicks!
Well done on the super quick turn around on the video, it looks superb.

Can't wait for the next outing :D

now that was good!!! my technical ability was introduced to new heights!
i cannot believe the speed at which this lot simply blasted away with little regard for boulders and adverse terrain, respect 8)
the views are amazing there,you dont see too much as you need all your witts here.plenty of stops though to take it in and allow me to catch up.
i was chuffed to see good blokes and stallar bikes in one beautiful place.
thanks to 'reanimation' for probably coming off the gas a bit to keep me company. absolute 10/10 for organisation, teamwork, friendliness.
we ARE retrobike. :)

Great pictures Woody. You've captured my 'pointing out the next climb on the distant horizon' pose pretty well. :D

Any more pictures chaps? I'm sure I saw more than two cameras...

Yep, great pictures Paul & Woody. Here's my contribution, I was too knackered most of the time to get my camera out, so only have a few.
