Thanks Karl and Spence for a well executed ride
Set off at 05.20 from Preston to Ludlow to pick up the mighty gate of the Emmelle Cortina, once we had un-hooked it from the gate hinges of the farm it was 08.30 and I was now heading towards the Church End Brewery, I knew I was on the right tracks when I passed Spencer cycling to the brewery from his house.
A great morning of riding followed by a lunch of one pint of ale and some flap jack, then out for a quick blast and further attempts to find the limits of the Raleigh Elix's rear mech
following a visit to Spencer's shed of many bike parts and a purchase of a four pint of "Retrobike Ale" I decided to get back on the road due to a lack of other campers, this was 19.00 and I managed to get back to Preston for 21.00.
A 15 hour plus day and well worth the trip down and nice to see evryone again, the road riding was a refreshing change to the norm
Thanks to Weeman for the 27" wheels, and Spence for the other bits
see you all at Mayhem
