A great turnout thanks for attending. Many pictures were taken and I’ve displayed a few below, sure many more will be posted up by one of the several photographers on the day. More of mine (62 in total) can be found by following this link to flickr:

And some not so good:

The first North West and North Wales Bike of The Ride 2010 (BoTR 2010) was chosen by the youngest rider on the ride and my did that young fella choose well, my Raleigh Dyna-Tech! Sadly the evil DSP power washed the sticker off later in the day :evil:

Hope you all had a great day, hope to see you all again very soon.

Brilliant day.
My awesome lack of fitness reared it's ugly head in the afternoon but it didn't spoil a great time.
Great Group, nice to see more faces/names.
Great Bikes.
Great surroundings.

Thanks to all.

Just got through the door. Shower and food needed badly!
Very enjoyable day with great company and even the weather gods were kind. Huge thanks to the NWAs for having us Yorkies along and a big big thanks to Mark and Paul for the slick organization- very proffesional and loved the infectious enthusiasm. Glad to meet some new faces although I'm rubbish with names- I will know you by bike next time :lol:

Right then, where's the curry menu gone?

Cheers

Great big thank you to everyone for making the effort to come along and share in a very successful ride. Thoroughly enjoyed meeting lots of new and not so new faces.
Apologies for holding everyone up with the one and only puncture, but no apologies whatsoever for cleaning Mark's Dyna-Tech for him. :wink:

And now for some pictures... lots of pictures:

Had a fantastic day with a fantastic group of people.
Will def have the 1990 Ridgeback 603 GS up and running on the next ride and leave the big rig at home.

Great day, great people, great bikes.

Look forward to the pics.
