Cheers for a grand day out everyone, thoroughly enjoyed it and I thought Rich did a great job of leading.

I'll get a few pics up shortly but a takeaway is calling right now.

Thanks rich(giant-one) I enjoyed myself. Some beauty descents and enjoyable climbs.

also beavis and brocklanders for the hospitaility, although Ed was ill and unable to partake in the ride, cheers!

i made it 21 miles on my unside-down computer E6.0Z was rounded up :lol: of good rolling stone tracks with some road sections which, does help relax your body.
i'm glad i made it. i was getting real down and fed up with the crap temperatures and the rain so, was pleased to break out of that depression!

The discs from a raleigh extreme would have made for an interesting ride on some exposed tracks as the wind was fairly strong, good fun all the same.

i love canals with all the lovely flat-ness

Image

i love roads for the lovely smooth-ness

Image
Image

hang on! where does that go? mainly up :wink:


Image

Kenaltobelli found that climb quite easy..


Image

Beavis with a better than good pine mountain.


Image

panaracer 'cutting edge' performance.

Image

more...

thanks, hope to see you all soon.

marc.

A big thankyou to all that came, old faces, a pleasure as always and nice to meet some new ones too. :D

Fell asleep upright on the sofa with my 5 month old daughter sat on my lap only to wake up when she decided my nose looked rather tasty :roll: :D

Very tired legs at work this morning with very little chance of rest. :(

Really sorry I couldn't ride but was good to catch up with everyone at the start and mid ride chip stop. You picked the right day because it's chucking down in Skipton today!

Few extra off road sections to be added next year so hope to see you all back in 'The Gateway to the Dales'. :D
