The descent of which Rob speaks is fine. If it's a bit slippy just follow my super skilled descending example.

At least you made the corner. I went straight on into those bushes just behind you.

Not my finest moment. :oops:

6 months since registering and this is my (drum roll....) 1000th post!

This may not end well. Or at least cheaply. :-D

I see that my almost compass like directional sense is getting it's usual level of respect (although how quickly Farmer forgets, I had to nurse him round HoNC one year and in the 2007 Peaks Ride I recall having to 'motivate' him away from a quivering lower lip).

Don't hate the player, hate the game.

But I do feel we are becoming a little like the Lawnmower Man Ed.

There may be a chance for me again this year. No TT's now!

I'll join in for a RetroWalk DOWN the hills! The uphill bits are just tiring - the downhill are :evil: Well, to me at any rate. I suppose you get more cautious the older you get.

So I am VERY cautious......................................

Now, which bike? Scott or Dynatech? Rigid or only just not rigid?

It's an Odysey. I've ridden both around here in the past - and suffered on both of them! At least the minimum travel forks on the Dynatech take the sting out of bumps.
