Great ride , great weather and great company , tough going but worth it , big thanks to Chris and anyone else involved in organising it , it's really good to see some youngsters getting involved in retrobike with great enthusiasm . Well done to all of you but slow down a bit please and let us oldies keep up , got to admit to feeling my age a bit toward the end of it yesterday after being blown away on the hills by someone 1/2 my age on a Raleigh Activator! , just proves the point that it's not about the bike though.
Looking forward to the next one .
Matthew

We all had a look at that red turbo saddle too Chris :lol:

Shame you couldn't ride but I can assure you it wasn't quite as dry as it looked, quite heavy going in places and the last 3 or 4 miles were very wet and muddy indeed.

Everyone stayed on though despite the slippery conditions (apart from Dans comedy dismount which I may have been a factor in :oops:) and we had no major mechanicals just a couple of punctures.

I missed the first climb on Strava but it looks as if the elevation gain was just over 2200 feet and there were 18 pretty weary legs by the end!

Ummm, I have some nice cuts and bruises, though I'm not sure slippiness was the issue. :lol:

Yeah, I'm all good thanks, the bruises are already fading away and I have some classic "chainring stripes" :)

It's a shame Ben didn't get it on camera, it would have made it feel more worthwhile.

Far more importantly, zero damage was done to the Zaskar.
