A big well done to everyone who came along today.
That was probably the muddiest Ride It there’s ever been, not that I think anyone thought any different!!!
It even defeated Mike, who was clearing the course, and only managed the short. I’ve never seen the boy so tired
What a ride, Well done Ride It! team, it may have been muddy, Raining, very wet and did I say Muddy.
However the route was great (Fully rideable) and well organsed as normal.
Again Well done.
You look like I felt at the end of that You know it’s bad when you’re having to cycle down hill as the mechanical bits are full of mud and stopping the bike working. Muddy hell. I managed to get around the long course but it took far longer than I intended. I only do it for the cake.
It was an absolute mudbath!! My first ever ‘Ride-it’ and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great facilities and organisation, I’ll definitely be attending more. Fingers crossed for some sunshine next time though:-)
I spoke to the caretaker before I left tonight, he had to clear the showers out with a shovel!!!!
Mark, glad you enjoyed it, see you at a sunnier event
Jason, we got through about 40 fruit cakes, 450 pieces of flapjack, 200 bananas and over 700 SIS bars and gels this weekend, Seems a lot of other riders are a bit partial to cake as well
Roll on the summer ( when I don’t have to punish the washing machine with about 5kgs of muddy ankle straps ( will have to sneak these in past the girlfriend – she’ll freak if she sees them))
That was my first RideIt. we did the short course. The event was absolutely fab and I had a great time.
The organisation was spot on.
Thanks so much- you will definitely see me again!
Oh – great cake too!!
Thanks – that cake took a lot of researching, good to hear it was worth it
Wow – thanks for the fantastic ride – 1st Ride It ride I have done and have already put dates in my diary for the next ones.
Love the mud (and cow poop) – great track, great people – I was one of those who tried out some fantastic Gore ware and have already been out and got myself the soft shell jacket .
See u on the next ride
Cheers Angie, see you soon.
