all the coast bits were whitby as far as I've been made aware, the house/back garden in DIRT is Pete Tomkins house as far as I know... other place's I'm going to speak to Jim about =D





Robin Hoods Bay area i was always led to believe, which is obviously right near Whitby, but narrows it down a little bit for you!

And yes it was Pete Tomkins house (aka mr crud) and he was the one driving the crud truck in the vid iirc!

Bike is looking awesome, i adore the video dirt and i think im now going to watch it sunday morning before i go out on the scunny ride with the boys from here lol!

We go past Mr Crud's house (old house ?) something like that, on our Ravenscar Railway ride (though cancelled this year but here's last years viewtopic.php?p=1375424#1375424 )

He's now running Sensible Products LTD and you can easily find his details with that info if you desired.

Yeah the hat is awesome, as is the pin badge and the blue z card.

I'm not gonna lie. I did cry like a little girl when I opened it and read the letter.
