right, I am back, but didn't take any pics myself.
Cracking weekend I will let other tell the tale but a couple of highlights:
Went to plan more or less.
40+ bikes, 50 or so people. Fantastic People kept joining and leaving the ride at various points but always 35+. It was an awesome sight looking back down the passes to see 1-2miles of bikes snaking up the hill. Truly memorable.
Crossing and leaving the island. 2 dropped on the way over, 3 on the way back and GSA seriously cross-rutted but not dropped. Oh there was also a dropped bike in the mountains at the foot of Wrynose pass. I won't spill the beans on who - they can tell their opwn tales, but one person manged to fall off twice!!!
I think I have seen most mega- hangovers now too. Again they can tell their own stories (if they can remember).
Finally the weather - thank you God
