Hey Old Ned,

are you glad we persuaded you to stay and ride then?

Thanks for all the encouragement en route.

I outwitted myself trying to keep up with Ned on the first hill! :lol: He had rhythm and was just cruising up the hill.

Muchos respect. 8)

Cruising!!!! :shock: :shock:

I had my eyeballs wrapped round my stem, my lungs were ablaze and my legs just about to explode! And this was only the first climb. I think you will find that my performance tailed off somewhat after then. I reckon that out of the 20 miles or so I must have walked 5 - including going down :oops: :oops:

Nevertheless, thanks for the kind comments fellas. You should have seen me when I was in my prime - whenever that was :?

Careful, all this talk of 'cruising' and 'whipping' might make people think I'm some sort of deviant.

:twisted: :wink:

Somebody mentioned 'training' - wazzat then??

Here's a shot of me recuperating at home afterwards.

Old Ned reckons he walked a mile or so downhill! I know I did about that on me chin and another two on me arse! I like to think I got the biggest howl of approval from the collective vultures at the bottom of that hill as I dissapeared painfully into that bramble patch! I'm still getting them out now.
