What a great ride. The Monkey trail is a lot more knackering than the FtD.

I was asked to leave the chemist on the drive home when I went in in those shorts and all the mud running down my legs and said, "I'm not well. Do you have any Imodium?"

The bike was cleaned yesterday with the crank all but falling off when I lifted it up! It was another 5 bucket effort!

Thanks to the organisers and to Spencer for the beer! I 'happened to find myself in the area' today so popped in and am looking forward to drinking my purchases:

I even managed to ride some of the rocky sections. I didn't mean to, the crappy cantilevers couldn't stop me in time to get off and walk.
Thanks again to all.

Had a good ride really enjoyed the day. It seems you all enjoyed the beer, more can be found at Church End Brewery (it even has a bar open at weekends).

See you all again FOD. There will probably be more beer!

For me the aftermath has only just finished. I found a good few grams of dust, sands and gravel in the Saracen's suddenly not turning headset.

Great ride everyone... :D

What do you mean it happened a week ago ? :shock: :shock: :shock:

Seems that working for the man has taken its toll on my sense of time. In any case it was great to catch up with a few old faces and get to know a few new ones.

Rember Ed, its a right after the level crossing :lol:

Catch you all soon in the FOD... 8)
