well, what a day..

absolutely gutted at not being able to ride, especially after putting quite a bit into organising it all

first of all a massive thank you to Pete, who was ride leader and to all the guys who helped to waypoint and sweep - Sophie, Tad, kingroon, Splatter Paint, redhotchilli, bat40a6, godders and drystonepaul

and thank you to all of you who turned up and made it worthwhile putting all that effort in

some quick shots that I managed to get

more later, hope everyone has got home safely....Max

mechanical of the ride gate shocker :lol: and within 1/2 mile of the finish too :roll: and in front of a suitably smug bent stay Univega rider :(

Many thanks to Max and Pete for another great ride! Really a great area to ride.

Respect to Spencer for riding the PM part after a couple of pints after almost dying when his blood alcohol dipped below 40% in the morning (must have been that kebab soaking it up).

Some great bikes on show as always.

Thank you to Max for organising the ride and Pete for leading the hoard! I enjoyed doing the marking as I got to see loads of cool old kit being ridden. As the guys on modern bikes said at White Lightening, have we ridden through a worm hole and ended up in the 90's?!

The food at the pub was really good, I'd go there a again. I've ordered a set of headset spanners, the Fire Mountain's headset hasn't EVER been apart so I need to get all that sandy crap out of it...
