Sunday 7th

Mark Sweeting arranged this local ride and ended up covering a somewhat unusual 50-odd miles!

While the sheer distance was out of the ordinary, it wasn't as much of a surprise as who he had out with him on this one - none other than the one-and-only Speedian, Ian Anderson! My old pal hasn't been on a MAC ride for about 3 years now and as far as I can see from Mark's pics he still has to pedal his bike, so at least he's still a proper biker!

Also out today was Ian's partner Sharon who I think accompanies him everywhere, plus the Scarlet Pimpernell otherwise known as Mark Ramsey. It seems that most of the weekend rides we've had for the last age and a half were on days when Mark had to work, so he's been going solo quite a lot. As well as these three our old mate Paul Houghton also tagged along for this one. Glad I wasn't there with my "29 mile arse" issue, it would probably have struck me twice!

Actually I'm not glad, I would have enjoyed riding with Ian again. Sometime, maybe.

Some big tyres there but not a fat or daft bike in sight - proper MTBing.
