Boxing Day Bash

We decided to go on a wee cycle with some people who really know what they are doing.

Team Fyrish

These guys have a winning reputation just look what they achieved last year.
Quads@ 10 Under the Ben '08
Quads@ Dawn Raid '08
Quads@ 10 at Kirroughtree '08
Quads@ 10 More in Moray '08
Quite stunning.

Gordy Mac has written a wee bit about the cycle which I will link to. Save to say that there was an abundance of skill on show, none of it coming from me !

I did have an early (sideways) dismount and a couple of walks.
I also had a problem with my chain when one of the links was badly twisted. Gordy rescued me with a new one. We made it to the top for cookies cake and whisky.

The descent was different too with a range of terra or should that be terror to deal with.
I had my usual puncture and David gave me his pump when my old one disintegrated before our eyes.

I was having an interesting day which was capped off by a stunning "somersault and roll down the hill" crash on Fridge Ridge.

What a great day out. Many thanks to Fyrishbikes and all the best for 2009.
