Excellent but absolutely tiring day. A day of warm sunshine, big hills, punctures and a hundred gates. Words and pictures aplenty to follow.

Thanks to all that came along. As always its you guys that make the meets what they are!

Although i loved every minute of it, my aching legs, raw shoulders and sunbunt face wish I'd been stuck behind a computor all day too. Ace day but I'm paying for it now. Shattered.

Had a great day of retro riding today and also got meet many new faces from the NE scene.

Shame we had to split as the downhill you missed was excellent and we reckon that we only just missed you back at the car park.

The great descents and technical climbs were my personal highlights, but the tunnelling was pretty unique also.

Biggest disappointment must be the lack of retro machinery being ridden and the large quantity of suspension on show!
