GPS track said 12 miles.. but there are gaps where the signal dropped out in parts of the woods, so guess around 15-16 miles. It's more of a 'Zig-zag than a loop. I think Salvage tech reset his computer at the start of the ride to measure the distance.

However far we rode or not it's a great 'loop'. Can't wait to ride it in the dry.

Anyway up for the weekend 17th/18th May?

Sorry to shatter your illusions, but my comp recorded 21 miles. And that included the mile this side of the station you lot didn't do.

So, it was 20 miles. And that comp is reliable. James's was recording the same too.

In Spain you have to push yourself till your really scared( running with bulls etc) I made out it was a reaction to that drop off.
