This is probably going to be the shortest Aftermath Thread in the sites history! :lol:

Well, the ride was originally planned as involving 6 maybe 8 people.......but turned out to be only 3. Me, my old work colleague Simon and Awkward Kid (aka Oliver).

The day started with, as of Friday, 4 riders planned, but I got a call at 9.45am from LGF (aka Mark) advising he'd only just got up...... :lol:

So, the 3 of us battled on riding a Pace, Stumpjumper and my modern mate on a Scott Scale.

The weather was breezy, overcast but stayed dry. Trails were a little damp but nothing too bad. We kicked off at 10.30, Oliver peeled off home at just after 12pm and Simon and I carried on until 1.45pm......but stopped briefly to fix a puncture each.....how nice of the farmer to do a spot of hedge trimming :roll:

Well, thats it......as the only banter would be me and Oliver I think once he's posted his pic this thread will close.....so until the next one, goodbye!

PS: For those that didnt make it, the tiffin and apple pies that Kirsten made especially for today are lovely :wink:

The day was good, even though there were 2 too many sets of disc brakes and FAR too much suspension travel for my liking! :wink:

Next rideout Dave, I'll plan for a Sunday.

As for you LGF, I am disappointed. This ride was planned following your request. You should be ashamed of yourself! :lol: :wink:

Cheeky git!

Started at Branston then out to Mere, Bracebridge Heath, Waddington, around the edge of Lincoln, Canwick, Heighington and back to Branston.

So no, nowhere near Beirut this week.
