Well, what a brilliant ride, especially after thinking it wouldn't actually go ahead!
So, a few highlights for me:
Opening the curtains this morning at 8.30am to be greated by 6" of snow
Sign on to the site expecting to see a load of 'not going to make it' posts, but after a flury of texts it would appear that us Retrobiker's are a mad lot.....so we all still decide to ride!
Deciding to take the Avalanche out (no pun intended!), mainly influenced by it's disc brakes; and that my RTS is painfully clean at the moment
Yep, I'm a tart!
Waiting at the village hall for half an hour for Andy B to arrive
Starting the ride, and not actually being able to see the trails due to the snow
Being soaked to the skin within 5 minutes
SPESHMIKE having the first 'off' of the day, about 10mins into the ride
Bombing down the first downhill section; bounce, bounce, off
No actually being able to see what your riding over/through/on
Blasting the woods in the snow; loved it
Andy B being the second retrorider to 'fall'. Funny, given it was falling off a wooden bridge into a ditch, that we'd just commented on how slippy it was
The trails changing mid-ride as the snow thawed, providing different trails to ride back along
Getting home to Mrs GT's pasta, apple cake and tiffin, with plenty of tea and coffee
A great ride, great company, great company. Hope to do it again, and with better weather maybe ride the second trail
