Big Bike Bash, if you're not there…..
Has Juan done the washing up and gone to bed yet??
I doubt it. Playing with water appears to be his preferred choice. Earlier this evening Juan was repeatedly squirting RudeBoy from a great distance, with the biggest water pistole I have ever seen ….. much to the annoyance of the little mouthy cockney sparrow.Posted 8 years ago

It's been a bloody good weekend, nice to put some faces to names.
The beer tents already open, its where i'm posting from.
Thanks Nick/Rich and everyone else who's helped make it a cracker.
'Mummy that mans got pink gloves!' I thinks this is Juan, at least thats what I heard folk shouting.
Some BBB pics, got back last night!
My man about to race.
Liked this bit of the course, good fun!
Thanks to all who organised BBB we had a great time and thanks to WCA for remembering Joels autism and having a little chill out bit for him, lovely. Joel had an amazing time and I have never (honest) ever seen him so happy or relaxed.Posted 8 years ago
I have to agree, we (Thinking for Tuesday) all had a great time and really enjoyed playing last night. I haven't been to a mountain biking event with such a good atmosphere since the Malverns in 1993 or whenever it was!Posted 8 years ago
I am looking forward to next year's BBB already. Next year I'm definitely staying over, bringing my bike, racing and trying all the beers.
Well done and thanks to all involved.
WCA has said it's a one off, yes, but I think there's a good chance of a repeat because it is going so well. There's a lot of happy faces about…..
WCA and Soma Rich have put an unbelieveable amount of work into this. They've lived on site since Wednesday and they are both knackered but happy. The prize pool is incredible too.
The man with the pink gloves is indeed JuanPosted 8 years ago
Yes I was wearing pink gloves, yes I did the most amazing superman on an Isla bike scooter for the bike limbo, yes I add the best time at a bike event ever, yes I did borrowed someonelses's kid to fail at the tag along race, yes I did the jump lake and it was awesome, yes the track stand was a very good idea, yes the bands were amazing, yes squirting on rude boy was such a relief (if someone sees him ask him about his night), yes I have add many faces to my 'let take a very gay picture just the two of us' photo collection, yes the knock down race was interesting, yes the BBB was a marvelous AND YES WE NEED A BLOODY BBB2 next year.

We had a truly great time as well.
A great XC course for the large folk and loads of fun races for the little dudes.
Awesome support from the sponsors and the thousands of ponds worth of prizes they donated.
Well done WCA and all the team.
Bring on BBB2.Posted 8 years ago

Likewise for me Juan – and not least when I discovered that you and me were born in the same town ! 😯
And, you know the street in which I spent the early days of my life ………. we're like brothers/two peas in a pod we are ! 8) …… although maybe separated by a few decades 🙄
I'm lovin that pic of WCA (flat tyre/beer) ….. classic ! 😀Posted 8 years agoClinkSubscriber
Brilliant event – lovely relaxed atmosphere and great beer (particularly the cheap stuff being sold off at the end which I'm drinking now 😀 ). Great for families. The tag-a-longs/trailer races with kids was the best idea for a race I've seen. There has got to be a BBB2!Posted 8 years agostumpy_danMember

echo those above, a really good 'fun' event my kids thought it was ace, we made use of the free climbing and tree rope access course and the pedalo's (sp?) a really good atmosphere and also good to put a few faces to names and of course get to be in juan's 'gay just the two of us' photo album.

well done all those involved..!!

I only had one drink all weekend other than a sampler of each ale before it went on sale. At the end I belive Nick said to people it was free beer, so I asked for donations, and people were generous so thanks.Posted 8 years ago
I think there was a about 20 pints left the I had to throw away to take the emptys back, so not bad at all.
