Started very wet, got a bit sunny, ended up wet and cold! Windy throughout! :lol: Bumped into a fellow Retrobiker - hello! Went down Jacob's Ladder - only put my foot down twice :D The Fuquay was absolutely spot on. May even sell all my other frames now :shock:

Looks good! :) on your own?

Not ridden in the peaks for way too long now after missing the retro ride. Need to go back a ride some proper exposed trails instead of scalextric trail centres. Fun, but lack a bit of real worldness.

Suspension too (so to speak..) - bit of change for you! ;)

Went with a mate on his non-retro steed (hence not in photos!!). Did some of the route we did on the Retrobike Peak ride last year.

The cafe at Edale's been spruced up a bit :shock:

Yes - suspension. Have to say it felt very good. Not going more than 2" though.........

Andy - ride in the Peak some time mate?

I should really ride in the Peak District, High Peak is only a few miles away. Looks like fun :D
