That wasn't a ditch, it was a man eating bush, with a hidden hole in the base of it. I didn't know where was up and where was down!!! :lol:

I couldn't move! I was practically upside down, with the bush attached to my camelbak, and my feet stuck in my bike. I would've been there for days if i was by myself!! :oops: Thanks for dragging me out man. :lol:

At least slow speed crashes don't hurt so much.

I've just hauled my sorry sick arse to the computer and read through this post ride thread – I wish I'd made it to this one, looks like you all had a real blast. Good turnout too, some new names and a few from the first SW rideout.

Lovin' the pics, good show Mr Hoarder. Though it sounds like you decided it was safer to sit in the undergrowth than ride parts of the route.

Rest assured boys I won't be missing another one of these.
