Kudos to the organisers for making 50 odd riders not bunch up and make it feel like small groups where it was needed. Worked very well.

Also sorry to all those that had to suddenly stop and walk up the steep section just after the horses and water when my chain didn't play ball, but you all could have got back on and ridden up it ;)

It was quite nice mending my snake bite (twice :oops: , must remember to check for the other hole) and taking in the views and quiet in the Sun.

+1

Gate openers made the downhills ACE! There is quite a few in the Peaks and they do come quite often so this was very much appreciated.

So well organised too - I am sure a lot more effort than was obvious on the day went into sorting everything out and I am very thankful for it. :-D

Just brilliant:oraganisation: people: gate openers a huge thanks to everyone.

Apologies for cheating by using a 29er to win the hill climb. However, it was a huge honour and privilege to carry the monkey of Hope for the East Midlands group.

Men of the ride?
1. Mr K for knowingly riding down Bradwell bank with drop bars: Barking. I just wish I had the bottle.
2. Steve for repeatedly and determindly throwing his body to the ground in an attempt to make it match the red bits on his bike. Steve: you know you can buy red clothing?
3. Whoever it was who gallantly ground up the last hill only to be overtaken by a runner: A real show of mind over a clearly knackered body, well done.
4. The organisers. Clearly a lot of thought had gone into making it a great day for the riders AND other people on the hills.

Cheers everyone

John B

I really enjoyed the day great company and as said elsewhere hats off to all the gate openers and organisers it ran very smoothly :wink:
Mam Tor was a highlight for me and not killing myself on the decsent back to Hope was a bonus :shock:
Thanks for the most spectacular crash award I think from the scratches on my legs that there must have been a tiger sitting in the tree I landed in :roll:
I feel beat up this morning although Cider may have something to do with it :lol:
I had to chuckle when on the way home I overtook a car towing a "Pageant" no less :wink:
