So, if you read my thread here you'll know what this is about: http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... highlight=
This is where it all started (for me at least )
My first ever mountain bike ride was at Farleton Fell in Cumbria in 1991 on a neon-pink second hand Diamond Back Topanga I bought from a friend - it was my first mountain bike. I have re-created the bike which I took on that ride, using some of the original bits.
The plan is to ride the bike for its maiden voyage at Farleton on Sunday May 23rd (day before my birthday
Sadly local routemeister Mark (Sinnett177) can't make it - however he is laying on a good route for us which I shall attempt to follow
I'm hoping that a special guest may be appearing in the shape of the person who sold me that bike nearly 20 years ago and was with me on that seminal ride - my mate Neil
who may be back from Antarctica in time
So, who fancies a bit of Cumbrian landscape? Route details to be confirmed, but will hopefully start at Holme (at the foot of Farleton Fell) and end by descending the front face.
More details to follow.
