NWA: Hayfield in the High Peak, Derbyshire ~ Saturday 26th March 2011 - AFTERMATH

A great day's riding had by all yesterday.

Image
Sinnett steers his Ti-Mega down the first descent

Image
mrlee test's the handling of his Altus A10 equipped Trek

Image
Regrouping at the top of the second big climb, mrlee tweaks his brakes just a little

Image
The second rock strewn and rut infested descent. A real test of bike handling, nerve and wrist strength.

Image
HarryCrumb enjoys another long and loose descent

Image
Steely determination for the last of four big climbs on the 16 mile route

Image
Sizing up the moorland singletrack before the final excellent descent

Image
mrlee sheepishly tries to conceal another mechanical

Image
After 33 years, the Brooks finally breaks

I'll add some more words when I get a moment.

A tough day in the saddle but really enjoyed it. Great to meet up with everyone and get my arms turned to jelly by the downhills. I was concerned by the amount of climbing on the route, but I should'nt have worried as the strong wind was the biggest test. Stiff legs today.

Great photos Lee.

Shame about the Brooks but I'm sure you'll successfully repair it.
