    After all the high altitude stuff of the last few weeks we’re back in Preswtich for some low level trail centre “Turning and Burning”.

    and, reintroducing Rule #2

    Nobody gets dropped.

    Sounds good!

    I think the key to ensuring that nobody gets dropped is to start on time and ensure that the planned route will fit within the time window making sufficient allowances for everyone to get through pinch points etc!

    Having said that, im confident that your plans will be of military precision!

    Just washed my bike down from Monday night and im wondering if a ranger from the West Pennine Moors would like to come and collect some very fertile material that is now heaped on my lawn!

    Good shout about Rule No 2 as well 🙂

    I’m in if my bike is back from hospital in time.

    😮 did someone get dropped last week?

    Cheers Derek

    Did anyone get dropped? Well … me. But to be honest, we staggered back like a bunch of bloody refugees, trudging through a war zone! I’m still traumatised. When we got out of the pub, I sat and cried. It may require counselling 😀

    Take two of these and you’ll feel better in the morning.

    Mmmmmmmmmm sausage rolls……

    I think a greggs sausage roll inspired graphic may be more appropriate than the need for speed one!

    Good photoshopping though Binners! Quiet at work at the moment??

    I had to look twice too Craig but on reflection I’m now fairly certain that its not binners, just a web image of Homer Simpson 😉

    Who’s playing out then?

    There has just been a brief rain shower and the air has “that spring smell” about it. The wife has asked me to liberate some wild garlic if we can find any as she wants to grow some in the garden.

    Should be a good one.

    I’m still at work.

    However the bike is in the car so I will be there.

    Dammit! Just realised. I’ve only gone and left my flip flops at home.

    Myself and Paul with the Beard will be there.

    Me +1… (Ste and he has no beard).

    I am just doing the pub tonight, and not with you. Does that count?

    Good run last night fellas (under the circumstances!).

    Never seen so many punctures, battery failures or frogs on one ride.

    A frog ate my battery. Then the other one too. 😳

    Frogs are bastards.

    Just spent half an hour trying to eliminate the troublesome play in my front wheel. Now sorted. It would appear that the bolt wasn’t seated properly and literally I could have lost my front wheel at any point which could have had disastrous consequences.

    You sure a rog didn’t undo it?

    Frogs are bastatds. As already stated.

    If you were as OCD as me or Derek there would be no chance of that occurring. I’m not saying my bike isn’t potentially lethal, it’s just that when it kills me, everything will be aesthetically aligned
