Had a good ride today the route certainly wore the newness off the Beta, There were two groups of 8 but two of our group failed to show due to a busted wheel on their trailer which had them stranded on the M4. Some of the lanes were tough for our group but i'm sure the other group got around no problem. It was 122 miles from door to door for me and i was out 10 hours no wonder i feel pooped.
Just a few photos and videos taken of a couple of the lanes we didn't stop much and when we did photos were the last thing on our minds
This was our band of merry men you can see flat Holm and Steep Holm in the distance just off Cardiff bay, The weather stayed good all day
Some kind of hold up ahead
This was it one of many obstacles to negotiate throughout the day
A lot of the lanes were like this which were easy going
and the rest were like this which is quite a steep and rocky
Alan this is your old CCM
Further up the hill
The Beta at the bottom waiting patiently for it's turn
There was lots of waiting, being the tail ender meant i couldn't see what was going on and just had to wait there was a big rock in the way on this one there seemed to be big rocks in the way all day though.
The guy in front of me here called it a day after this lane he had had his fill and headed home
Shortly after something spooked the Beta and it tried to escape up a tree
Not to self let the bike go don't try and hold onto it
Last of the videos this is called pumphouse lane its got a bit rougher since the last time i done it, I dropped the Beta on this one, I got up the hard bit went to put my foot down and i couldn't reach the floor and over it went, sure was easy to pick up though.
More of Alans old bike being punished
And this was the best effort of the day he was on a CRF250 rally
It was a tough day with a good bunch of lads all willing to help each other along
Last photo for you Pete just before i washed it. i do wash them i just don't do a very good job
