What a day! Big thanks to Sheldon and his 'team' and Daj for setting it all up. Perfect weather, dry trails and a nice pint, what more could you ask for? Oh the company wasn't bad either :wink: I am now going to soak my aching bones in the bath. It didn't feel like 17 miles, but it does now.

At least you made it :oops:

I'm so sorry guys – once again the legendary Crayons sense of direction let me down. I was in Gloucester by 9:30, but something went spectacularly wrong with my sat nav (I forgot to bring it) and the roadmap may as well have been in french for all the use I could make of it :twisted: Needless to say I never found the visitors centre – not even sure I found the right town to be honest – though I did find some forest (which I'm assuming was Dean) and got a couple of hours riding in. Damned if I was going to drive that far and not spin my wheels – t'was lovely and warm though

I hope you weren't waiting around for me :roll:

Next time we plan one of these rides, can I follow someone who knows where they're going please :lol:

What a top ride , To summarize the ride :)

• Weather Hot and Sunny
• Bikes , Plenty of old un’s
• Route – Spectacular
• Mud, some but not too much
• Pub, Lovely food and beer, great scenery :wink:
• Best retro ride yet

Must say a big thanks to Daj for organising and to Del and Sheldon for the routes. Was good to see all there and cant wait to do this again.

Perfect !

Here are some of my pics, I have some identical to others posted as we only had a chance to take pics when stopped so wont post those.

Pretty much already covered and superlatives often used too readily but fantastic day out, company and route. Great to see some people returning plus so many new faces, genuinely something for everyone.

Seriously, does it get an better than dry but not too dry trails, warm but not too warm weather, altitude changes but not too much, friendly but not too friendly company etc? Simply, no.

As posted above, particular thanks to Sheldon, Del and Dave for making it happen, already looking forward to the next one.
