Cracking ride today, really good turnout and the weather was perfect. Boy O Boys new tractor - SS 29er in Austin Maxi Beige - turned a few heads as did Lou74's Totally F*cked Funk. Good to see some new faces :D Riding a rigid SS is knackering but fun, tomorrow my knees will remind me of the suffering again. The Monkey of Hope made an appearance before his return trip home next weekend.

Bring on the tractors!

Average Mark - I have your top again! Will bring it to D2d

crackin' ride and there was dust :shock: ......lots of it 8) let's hope we're as lucky for D2D :roll:

Bit of an eccentric turnout of bikes today, tractors and single speeds making up about half the bikes it seemed..............and then there was the Funk :shock: .........love it 8) that bike has more history plastered all over it than an entire BOTM field :lol:

Excellent ride as usual, the sand made things interesting especially on the corners. Roll on the D2D.

Alright all.

A great day's tractor'in and furrow'in by all. Loads of fun on the tractor 29er... let's hope the conditions are as good for d2d!... see you all there!

Lewis's 'totally f*cked funk' is definately one of those bikes where Patina is everything. Great history.... including repairs and headtube modifications!..Never seen a headset do that before! Definately a favourite with the EARB massive.

Here's some pics.....
