Hi there all, looking forward to seeing you all again after 12 months, although...

"- can JV hang on to his anal crown for another year?" - i'm not sure I want to wear that crown Neil!

P.s can anyone lend the worst equipped retrobiker ever an old helmet for the day?
as per disclaimer..

Thinking of putting some tat in the car in case anyone wants swops or even purchase. May well stick all sorts in particularly the awkward/expensive to post stuff like wheels and forks.

PM me if you have any specific requests and I'll see what can unearth (although I really should be focusing on having a rideable bike)

Cant make it on Sat- due to work :(

I was off work on Tuesday so did a loop around Edale- going UP Jacobs Ladder(pushing raining), through Coldwell Clough then the Roych, then round and about and finishing off down Chapel Gate :shock:

I had a couple of offs mainly from going too slow up hill, one slightly faster down Chapels Gate :? Had a superb time... though at various times I was thinking -sell all my bikes and get an FS and other times I was thinking sell all my bikes and get a set of golf clubs!

Think y'all will be going throughsome of the same bits so have included some pics-

BTW...Not a peaks expert at all, but despite about 30+mins hard rain at the start of the ride, the vast majority of the loop I took was well drained. I would err towards big tyres to soak up the very rocky descents :)
