Hit the North Preview ride

img_3726

Loads turned up. As usual we met in the local car park and did a lap with various riders who have either entered, thinking of entering or just out for the hell of it. In contrast to past previews (where we’ve done them to get some more punters), we’re already full up this time. Still, folk want to know what the hell they’ve let themselves in for so it’s a useful and fun couple of hours.

The now-traditional shenagans took place. Mechanicals, long waits for following groups, people getting left at the traffic lights 10 yards from the start, etc. We had coffee and cake this time though – we had a small Critical Mass outside Costa Coffee πŸ˜‰

  1. Double gutted! Not only did I miss the entry for the event but had to miss the preview ride too due to illness 😦

  2. When are you free Al? If you can make it over one weekend I’m sure I could show you a lap.
    Or….you could really earn some karma and bring a crew of marshals on the day πŸ˜‰

  3. I think the route’s really good. Tougher than I was expecting. I’ve now got a SLX Shadow rear mech on order so hopefully no more mechanicals from me!! Roll on the next preview ride πŸ˜€
