...or John and Jezza go out for a ride on sunday afternoon.

After 6 months finally managed to get Jezza out for a ride. Took in a 25 mile loop out to a cafe (obviously) via some of the raddest trails in the Midlands.

that'll be the disused railway from kenilworth to Balsall Common unless I am very much mistaken :D

Good ride? Sorry couldn't make it. Garden looking good though. Woopee. :evil:

Jez looks like he needs a fag.

Hope the gnomes are all perfectly positioned :D

That particular bit was between Offchurch and Dunchurch.

It was a good ride, Jezza did well and didn't spark up once !

so I am very much mistaken. arse!

This is the only gnome we have at the moment, not sure whether it should be by the front door, or on end of driveway. Might get stolen there though.

Yes you're right! Has to be the reason for the beer gut AND the poor performance too :)

Apparantly I did 30 according to Jon boy (had to ride to his house and back). It was all reasonably off road. Felt like I'd done 4300 tho by the time I freewheeled into my driveway tho. Bah!

I literally threw the Hei hei into the garage and collapsed on my doorstep. What a puff.
