I had fun, wrists suffered on the downhill with me only having a few offroad rides in since breaking my wrist....mainly been on soft or paved routes.

Nice to have the bike back in one piece and still clean, just dusty of the dry conditions 8)

Looks like a good day. Sad I missed it now, and in an ironic twist she announced at noon that she was heading to the borders to see her Mum.

I could have managed the best of both worlds.

Top day, I forgot how much fun Glentress can be. Great day, top company and good laugh as usual. Cooll photos Saltyman, looking forward for more.
PS, your bike tyres on picture should be compared with Velo's tyres, contrast would be even more shocking :lol:
