pic 55 - great shot of ma 'tache blowing in the breeze :lol:

I posted in the other thread but again - big thanks to all for organising a great ride; really welcoming bunch for my first RB meet, cracking singletrack and what a selection of bikes :shock:

Lessons learnt - need shorter stem, Marin was overkill (and overheavy) for Thetford and must get FITTER!!!!!

Apoligies to REKIBorter for my friends impromptu, endo resulting calamity - I can't take him anyhere :wink:

A Big thanks goes out to Si (Dr S) for the lift down,, and picking me up at silly o clock in the morning (4.30am... jeez :roll: :lol: )

Great to be out on the bike again and was nice to see some of the old iron (and plastic :lol: ) being used and enjoyed as it should be.. :)
