Morn'in all. Here's those photo's of Sunday as promised ( including beaker's crash! )
Looks like I'm only 3ft tall :roll: in the group line ups.... fixing that seatpin/ saddle at every stop. I'll have to lay off the pies for the next ride! :lol:
Speedy recovery beaker.... as speedy as the approach to the bombhole. :wink:

Chin up, last time i ballsed up the approach to a bombhole i spent a week in Hospital with a punctured lung followed by another 2 weeks sat at home :D

The best part was the lung felt 'itchy' and it made me cough, this compounded the agony of the ribs i also broke :lol:

I wish there was a photo of that one :shock:

The broken collar bone club is quite exclusive!

Only the best riders with the most hardcore crashes are allowed to join, and judging by the photo I'll let you in! :lol:

Hope it heals soon mate. Thank christ you were wearing a skid lid :shock:

Thanks everyone for a great day's riding. Shame about the condition of the black route, but the red route made up for that and its nowhere near as muddy as two weeks ago.

Best wishes to Beaker for a speedy recovery.
