Thanks everyone for turning up to the third Sherwood Pines blast today and making it such a great days riding.

Bike of the Ride was Kaya's Saracen Killi Flyer I think, not just because it was old and stylish but because it left the ground on the jump section!

Cheers

Mat

Great riding today and several blood injuries for me due to the very tight singletrack. Thanks for showing us around all the best bits Matt.

Thanks also to The Old Man of the Woods for building the trails.

Great day again and thanks Mat for holding-back on the through the woods stuff, you are usually like a ferret down a hole with the rest if us emerging onto the fire road at various points having got lost.

Some not very brilliant photos from a pretty atrocious selection. :oops:
Looks like I'm having to post these in groups of 4.
