Thanks to everyone who turned out for this and a huge thanks to Chris for giving us such an excellent route with a perfectly timed lunch stop.
The wind caused some interesting moments and must have a added a few miles onto already tired legs.
I thought the riders who hadnt ridden for a long time did fantastically well and Adam now wants to try and make all the bigger rides.
No decent pics from me I'm afraid so I'll look forward to seeing yours.

Marc the red Marin belongs to Jason a friend of Longuns, he was given the bike after his mate had finished using it as a commuter I believe and has a fairly fresh powder coat. I think Jason said it started life as a Bear Valley and now its his every day bike as he a has a Lapierre for the really rough stuff.
Amusing thing was he was never that far behind us on the offroad sections despite being on pretty skinny slicks :lol:
