Got home today after making a long weekend of it. Thoroughly enjoyed the ride on Sunday, but only on reflection after I'd finished I was one of the smiling over-50s and just to make a challenge of it riding a ss along the 55km route. Spent a fair bit of time walking towards the end (along with a lot of others!). It's a beautiful area, Ruthin was very welcoming and I'll be back to visit and ride again.
Ruthin MTB Marathon
Had great fun doing my first ELBNO and the full course, made even more fun out on new SS...
Rugby Club showers with lashings of hot water was welcome after 7.5 hrs in the mud
Shame the pasta party was only for those doing the Sunday ride.. Was told by caterers they'd be serving after the ELBNO, which wasn't the case
Great event, great atmosphere.
A big thank you to all involved and looking forward to next year.
Perhaps it will be a bit drier.
Also, the pics from the official website are brill, just ordered mine !!
See you next year !
Yes, a big thank you to everyone involved, organisers & helpers etc. You all did a brilliant job.
