who is that ugly git on the left??!!!
atleast my bike was retro style!! being steel and having the classic paint!!
first of all thanks to kirbdug for organizing us into a ride up at afan. i have ridden there several times before and don't really need an excuse for jumping into the car for a ride here, but this was the first time we would be camping, but it was also a test for the tent etc ready for use at mayhem next month.
anyhoo, me and matt (king salsa) left his place at about 8am saturday and drove direct to afan, no stopping so when we got there we headed straight for the cafe for munchies, and wow what awsome munchies!! we met up with jango, recognized him from the thetford meet a few weeks back and then lollipops turned up followed shortly by grannygrinder.
as we walked out of the cafe we bumped right into kirbdug, and do you know what the first thing i thought was? bugger, these guys look fit!!
i was right aswel, they all just span up the first climb like it wasn't there!! they are used to climbs in torbay, we aren't!! but it wasn't that hard, just fresh legs from the car then straight into a climb isn't ideal!!
as the ride went on the rain started, initially it wasn't bad but then it stopped, then started again and then was chucking it down!!
legs got tired and we eventually got back to the start, bikes were cleaned at the jetwash, got chnged and built the tent at which point kirbdug got out the preezzies!! beer and gt85!! this guy is a true gent!!
after our tent was built we headed to the cafe once again for munchies, we all sat about the table stuffing our faces with lasagne, that hit the spot! aswel as the cake, the crisps, the mars bar, the tea etc!!
(well i am a growing lad!)
we all sacked back to the tents, we were woken up at about 130am by some numpties on the otherside of the hedge who were having an alcolhol fuelled argument, utter knobs but a funny moment happened among it when one of them said in a very girly way "i just want to tell you how i feel!" the next morning (today) we sussed out which group of guys it was and noticed a couple of black eyes!! but they seemed happy enough so maybe they hugged it out or spooned eachother to be friends again!!
all in all a good weekend, and once again met some deacent guys, which seems to be a recurring theme of any retrobike meet!
after looking in skyline cycles we decided to sack it, the rain was due in again and we thought we'd didn't want to get the wet shoes on again to ride so we came home, it's alright though, we both have tomorrow off aswel!!
here's some pics and i'll do a link to facebook for the rest
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life.
