    Did the loop today, from the dog n partridge, great having a nice bit of grub post ride :)

    Set off at 9 in the rain, only saw 2 other riders until the last bit when we had a look at the new skills section.
    Its running nice, even in the wet its so grippy. Had a look at the slab, seeing as had no knee pads etc. decided against it, thats my excuse anyway....
    Did hully gully twice, love it.

    Have a good day tomorrow guys :)

    Bumped into Ed oxley, think im going to have to try one of his courses, fancy the jumps for dads.
  • we meeting at the abbey park hospital then? for 8am is that the plan still?
  • yeah dude thats still the plan
