They were removed due to that horrible faff with a 2.5mm allen key. Just be grateful you weren't riding a Faux Chance!

Yes, that was rubbish and is being replaced, possibly today :oops: - but you were after more off me at Cannock for helping another member (who's identity I shall keep quiet to protect the innocent...).

I've driven 585miles in a terrifying car that cost £140 with passengers & overnight guests (to ease the early start), changed wheels on the M6 in the dark and rain, detoured into the darkest corners of Brum ... I could go on ... all in the name of little RB Nats stickers ... must be worth something! :wink: :lol:

EDIT
I've just remembered we brought a picnic & home-baked cookies to Cannock too - it doesn't equal the keg, obviously, but gotta be worth something. And Charlie & I did an extra lap, saved some lost non-affiliated retrobikers and I cleaned my bike (with a bucket of cold water and sponge) in the car park...

Your well in the hunt Pete and no I haven't knocked any points off you for Cannock. Think only JV and Boy'o'Boy had mechanicals at Cannock.

Anyway back on topic, FoD.

Rode in the Forest on Saturday and the conditions were nigh on perfect. We've got some new trails planned so while there will be some familiarity with previous Retrobike FoD rides there's certainly lots that will be fresh.
