    everyone that attended  or supported and gave up their time to help me get this event done! Probably aged a few more years over the weekend but to see the grins on everyones faces was immense, struck lucky again with the weather as it peed it down last night!

    Big thanks to Little Rippers,  Sender Ramps,Kendal Mountain Rescue Wheelbase,Stooge Cycles Ghyllside Cycles Bombtrack Alpkit  Liteville UK Pipedream Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery Friday Street Rock Band and Cranked Magazine.

    A few pics to give you a taste of the event

    Thanks for a fantastic weekend Rich, I had a squint around the campsite for a bit of litter, but didn’t find much, I think its a testament to a great bunch of folk turning up, it will sell out next year for sure.

    Gavgas it sold out this year at 160 tickets but looking at the site we could get 200 on.

    All costs covered and Cancer Research and Kendal Mountain Rescue going a fair few ££££££

    Looks like a great event. I think I need to move north, not much chance of something like this happening in Kent.

    I could only make it to the Saturday but it looked like everyone was having a finetime. Thanks Rich and family for putting on another excellent event – you must have called in a lot of favours as the site looked great with loads going on. Thanks also to the guys at Sonder/Alpkit for all their excellent advice and for lending me a Transmitter to demo when my rear mech died on the way onto site!… wasn’t intending to buy a new bike this year but it was a hoot to ride so I’m now saving up😀. Nice to meet Tom riding the Surly on the way back from Kentmere – good luck with setting up your event!.

    Ooh, I think I met those two young ladies (with the ice creams) on Sunday, on the Three Rivers Descent (Kentmere). Brilliant riders already!

    The little one (now age 6) explained the line to me . . .
