Just returned from an excellent two days of riding in a remarkably dry Welsh landscape - for those who are familiar with Wales, you'll apprecaite how rare two consecutive dry days are. The event was organised by my other half (the misinformed refer to her as my "better" half), Ela aka Pumpy. She did a recce run a week ago & confirmed that it was suitable for GS's etc. We met up in Rhayader (map to follow) after riding up from Oxford. Everyone else was camping with Pumpy & myself taking the soft option of a local B&B, a decision we don't regret, it's just that we could have chosen a better place to stay. I'll leave the route explanation to Pumpy later as I did not take a map or GPS, being content to follow the others. My few photos are here: http://possu.smugmug.com/gallery/2745346#145864982 Couple of favourites: Pumpy having dropped her GS after failing to ensure adequate sidestand clearance Dr Rich & his "farkled up" 12GS taking a breather: Hopefully this will work out. I took a few short movies on my digicam & uploaded them on to YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ohY5uHKYE8Y http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48GkVvudnxY http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQvENtqhLIg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z2BnDjODcSY http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90DY3cXln9U http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SblSchffsec http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkbeB3KQW-Y Saturday's riding was great but was eclipsed by Sunday's Strata Florida ride. It was a shame that Dr Rich had already gone home as he alone would have provided hours of amusement on Sunday's ride. Big thankyou to Pumpy, Dr Rich & Rocks for arranging it all and to everyone who attended - same again later in the year. Would appreciate someone confirming that the YouTube videos are viewable, I'm a bit of a YouTube n00b - thanks.
