    Can’t remember all of the dates, but I certainly remember the bikes.

    Jumpers in the park, small boys as goal-posts – wasn’t it? Mmmm:

    ’92 Something from a catalogue that looked like a mountain bike but clearly wasn’t one – it was all I could afford, and I was happy. It weighed as much as a car, and didn’t last very long at all.

    GT Tequesta – The ride was as hard as nails, and it made my arms and legs burn. Fell off it a lot, and fell in love with it and mountain biking.

    Cannondale Super V 900 – Fell off and took a lot of skin off the very first time I rode it because I was too impatient to swap the toe clips it came with for my SPDs. I had fun putting a lot of miles on this. 80mm of travel – who could need more? 😉 It flew down hills – and nearly killed me climbing them (bounce, bounce, bounce). I have very fond memories of riding the South Downs Way for the first time on it and screaming down Butser Hill.

    ’97 Kona Kilauea with Pace RC35 fork.
    Took it to the Brecon Beacons for the first proper ride and was completely blown away. Never should have let this one go … a wonderful bike.

    <10 year gap – went raving then dabbled with kayaking>

    2007 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Comp. Liked it, but it never really gripped me. I wasn’t riding big enough terrain to justify full suss.

    2010 Kona Haole (road bike). Much more fun than I thought it would be. Rode through the winter for the first time (I am a lightweight) and got fit for the spring this year.

    2011 (Just 3 weeks ago) Cotic Soul built by my local bikeshop Cycledealia – absolutely amazing, I love it, this this was just what I was looking for. Unfortunately I had a really silly low speed fall on just my second ride and broke my arm. Three weeks more of wearing the cast to go – I am climbing the walls waiting to ride it again! Soon come …. 🙄
