Rob you legend
Lovely day out in the mud and sunshine
Great bunch of guys as usual ,well done newbies good effort
That climb up onto the Mynd was almost rideable...just need to get some more practice with the new Sidis
Loved Johns heckling of the fell runners...they did seem too serious
Then dropping down into the valley there was that wicked rocky road ,could have done with a few more bits of marshmallow mind or Mynd...then speeding down the hill to open gates with Phil I became acutely aware of mismatching speed with terrain trying to keep up that bit was a highlight...made me feel 20 years younger cheers buddy.
Loved the Pub ....the comment as we were all sat waiting for our grub "it's like the last supper"
John does have a halo sure but there the similarity ends
Matt as Judas
Matt and Darren two very funny fellas I loved all the banter .Sorry about holding you all up with Puncture No 1 as we left.
Then that epic but very rideable climb back up onto the Mynd was as I described it to Elpedro 'at least it's merciful'
Then as we left from the groupshot I hit a rock on the way down to the road and had puncture No 2 which provided my West Midlands chums with more pisstaking opportunity ....thanks for the tube Daj you guys are brill.
Then the Drop down Minton Batch ...absolutely brilliant I was nervous about my ability but it was great and an enjoyable road section back into Church Stretton I had a chuckle with Ian who had misheard me talking to Rob about my Carbon soul....very dark
And we were back in the carpark before we knew it quaffing Spencers excellent ale and rooting around in our pop up carboot sale.
