Didn't think anyone was mad enough to want to go out last Sunday, but as i had posted it, i went to the start, at the appointed time. It was very wet, but warm. Bobcatmax turned up, on his bargain GT LTS, and with his partner as well, so, we had a riot
I had a great deal of fun meeting them, showing them a lot of trails that they had never imagined would be only 3 miles from their front door
It was very muddy, and i did things on a bike i had never done before:- sideways, nearly backwards, stayed on in mud(!?).
We had some atmospheric views, both forward, and back, and some good beer and banter.
Didn't take many pics, as a) didn't want to get the camera wet, and b) it just seemed to interfere with the flow of the ride.

Didn't go that way then....
Doesn't look that wet does it. Well it was. BobCatMax adjusting his partner Heidi, and his GT, looking west along the A280, Long Furlong road.
Decisions, decisions,decisions...we went left.
Obligatory first pub (Worlds End, Patching) pic. BobCatMax, trying to remain incognito, Heidi, his partner, and me.
Nice little trail on route
Hope to meet some more of you on other rides.
