quality day riding :D :D thanks very much to the ride leaders and organisers, would defo be up for riding there again.

as usual loved the banter just as much as the riding, good to see new and old faces and it was nice not to have to long a drive for a change. i think harrycrumb has the longest this time!

here's a pic i took :D

Cheers all, good ride! That place is great, and riding really well in the dry.

Thinking we may have overloaded the pub at lunchtime though...

Thanks to the leaders, good job again, tough with so many riding.

Absolutely top ride, thanks to Woodsman, TGR & Bobcatmax, and the various others supporting them (who's names will come to me later), and to everyone on the ride - it's not how far, or how fast, its just about the spirit of the ride. :D :D :D

Target is for all of them for next year! :shock:

Top day out, well organised and want to ride there again 8)

High lights for me ;

• Weather
• Lack of rim wearing mud
• Knowledge base of electronic Di2 gears
• JB666’s innuendo’s
• Speedy single track
• Dry roots :shock
• Final Prize givings

My doctored photo to celebrate Repack birthday 8) and maybe a caption for Mark Sinnett without bike :lol:

Absolutely fantastic ride today. Quite a different perspective being almost in charge of one this time :lol:

One thing i didn't do properly during my fairly rubbish speech at the end was thank Pete, so thank you Pete, couldn't have done it without you, and thank you again to Matthew and Chris, especially for the mucnhies at the end.

Apologies to everyone i didn't say hello to and introduce myself, I'll do better next time I promise.

Some top pics in your bunch Ted, and a great one from you Jonny

I managed two..

the Wolvens Pass pit stop -

and Mark's presentation at the end -

Thank you everybody for such a great day :D

Awesome day guys, apologies to those that had to wait for me and massive thanks also. In particular bobcatmax who bought up the rear and was a huge encouragement, your a gent sir and a credit to the forum, as are all the guys that were happy to aid an unfit bugger like me. I'll make sure I have something a little smaller on the front next time.

Thanks to all, good day out riding with a good mixed route nice to see some bike in the metal that I have never seen before too and the Di2 gears were something else.
