Right then! first things first
anyone who was thinking of coming should have ridden today, singletrack heaven!!!!
thanks to everyone for guiding me and matt, awsome day, amazing trails, and top guys (as usual i've noticed on retro rides)
i set off at about 7.20am from my place, picked up king salsa aka matt 10 miles away at his place and headed for the motorway, 3 and a bit hours later with a quick call to rekiborter(chris) we find the guys sat outside the tea rooms in the carpark, hands are shaken and the conversation turns quickly to bikes!
then the riding starts, endless singletrack that goes on forever!!! you could ride in there for days, no real hills just constant flowing singletrack!!
i found myself smiling the whole ride.
i did discover one thing though, my aluminiumO rides like it has trotters instead of tyres!!!
don't get me wrong, the bike does everything it is supposed to and is functionally perfect but even though everything is as it should be the handling is slightly off, think it is the head angle.
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life.
