Just in, bike still filthy in the car but humming with good memories from a smashing day out.

Many thanks to all who came, especially those who travelled a long way.

More later but until then, post up your photos and thoughts.

Another great ride chaps - thanks for organising. Appreciated touches like the signing on sheets, labels and stickers. Good to meet old friends and find new people for a chat on the way round.

Enjoyed the route and have to confess to a childish delight going over the rollers at the end!

Thanks to Jan for the sausage rolls,savouries and that fabulous chocolate brownie.

Oh and I even went home with a " Karma saddle" that looks just the right size.

What more could I ask?

Bike is hosed off, awaiting more detailed attention ......and spurred on to more bike wickedness by some of you have contacted the guy selling the little GT frame .....I know..... I swore the next bike would only be a zaskar or alittle alpinestars .......

just got in, i will post pics tomorrow as me and adam (pure7-89) are going out for a curry! :D

what i will say though is what an awesome day! :D having never ridden there before i didn't know exactly what to expect and i was pleasantly surprised by the trails, a mix of a bit of everything, fire roads, singletrack, rocks, climbs, descents, mud, mud and some mud! :D with all the mud i managed to get on me i have to say i feel like someone has taken an electric grinder to my butt cheeks!! :lol: :lol:


thanks for organising another great day out! :D the karma/sales table was great, i picked up a set of forks (from charlieboy88?) and a set of rims from harrycrumb, so i did quite well! :D not to mention rummaging around in Ed's sack for my special muddiest rider of the ride award!!! :lol: :lol:

was cool to see people i know and people i didn't know before today aswel and there were a couple of unexpected faces aswel, Kien for example, a rare poster on here but he's done both OWMTBC events so far.

anyway i best go, i need a shower really badly!!! :shock: :D


:D

Here are a few pics to start off with, no action shots as I was too busy concentrating on the trails to stop and take action shots!

If you recognise yourselves or your bikes let me know who's who & I'll edit the titles.

As usual folks, another great ride. Was good to see some old faces and plenty of new ones who's names I'll never remember :oops:
Also fantastic to see such a massive turn out - 40 ish ? :shock:
My bike and shoes are now back to their original white colour instead of the brown sludgy colour they came home in having removed that special mix of mud & grinding paste that they seemed to pick up today !
The main thing I will take from today I think is the resolve to attend north west events and try to win a prize now I've seen how amazing the future ones are :lol: :lol: :lol:

Really enjoyed todays ride despite my fitness (or lack of it) letting me down. Great company and some fantastic bikes.

Have uploaded some picture here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/parkpreboi ... 033287154/
