Hit The North 3 – Picture Links
There are lots of people wanting to find themselves in pictures from Saturday’s event at the moment. Please post any links to pictures (flckr accounts etc)in this thread but nothing else, otherwise there will still be the need to trawl through loads of posts to find the info!
Moderators – as there wont be many posts the thread will quickly fall away – any chance of making it a sticky for a few days?
Anyway, here are a few links that I have pulled together…
My own blog from yesterday is here:Posted 6 years ago
the switchbacky things in the woods.
your words below! 😆
He’d love it.
Leave the car in Philips Park and ride down through the old car park into Waterdale. Mail me (in profile) and i’ll send you a map. The flat trails are all finished, the singletrack with the berms and jumps is a work in progress and doesn’t link up properly yet.
There are no way markers, but the site is small and open enough to explore without getting lost.Posted 6 years ago
The problem with them is that they are about as far away from the main field as it gets so photographers don’t tend to see them.
I knew where they were and thought they’d be great for taking photos but as you say, they are right at the end of the course. I didn’t make it all the way there at the summer event, not really feasible in a 2 hour event.
edit – still looking for somewhere to host mine since fotopic died and my flickr account is full. Will add a link when they’re up.Posted 6 years ago
Finally found somewhere to host the pics!
I got a bit click happy and took 1089 photos in 2 hours on Saturday, totalling almost 30gb – of those, 771 are reasonable quality. Compare that to HTN2.0 when I took fewer than 400 photos in an 8 hour event…
I’ve resized the images to fit in a 600*600 square, perfect for facebook and so on: feel free to save a copy locally and add it to your facebook account, use it as a profile pic etc. WOuld be nice if you leave a comment with a link then I know how my pics are being used.
If you really like the picture, I’ll be able to send out full resolution images (3000*4000, should print fine at A3 size) but will ask you to make a donation to the charity of your choice. A couple that I’ve chosen to support recently are these: you may wish to choose one of them, perhaps.
I’m not going to ask for receipts or anything, just going to leave it to your conscience to donate what you feel the pics (and the participation in the event) are worth, especially given the fact that Mark’s efforts are worthy of sponsorship in any case!
Well done to all who rode and those who put a lot of effort into making things happen smoothly.Posted 6 years ago
Loads of shortcuts being taken on that bend too I notice. I will install spikes and razor wire next time.
Noooooo! that was the “race” line, you would not believe how much mincing there was round there. I reckon about 10, maybe 15% of people rode the steeper bit. Quite a few looked, then said “no”. Some people even pushed round the “proper” line.Posted 6 years ago
