Would just like to apologise to Sulaco 250 KTM & Sulaco+1 400 KTM for switching days to Saturday and not being able to make the ride. Hope you have a good day Sunday.

Riders for Saturday were:
NDC. 990 KTM
Sparkton 950 KTM
Campagman KTM 400
nibby 950 KTM

Started out from Monyash about 9.30am heading up north on a few easy lanes.
Well I say easy, they are when all the ruts are not full of water. Highstool lane was easy but Slough Lane had deep water filled ruts. We did find a pub but was a bit to early for it to be open.




Well off we went to find a few more lanes.






Time for a brew in Hope. Calling at the cafe in Hope village, parked our bikes out side the cafe and finding them still there when we came out. We were lucky. Later on in the day we met 2 lads on Yams that had been in the same cafe just after we had been there and when they came out one of the bikes had been nicked. We sat outside, but if we had gone inside and eaten, one of our bikes could of gone.

Well on to pindale. Down then up.



This is what sparktonsbrake leaver looks like after hitting a rock up Pindale.


Thats the way, bend the brake leaver with a bar.


Perhaps not


From this point on sparkton was faster than all of us going down hill

Roych Clough










Time to turn back down south, and call in at Macclesfield Forest (Posh Nosh) for a brew before heading to Clough Brook ( Nibby got a bit wet ) Vid to follow.
Then off to Sparbent and the Three Shires Heads ( Both Ways ) my arms had given up by now and I just opened the throttle and hung on







Well thats that. Hope everyone had a good day's riding. I will post some vids up through the week ( Sorry Nibby ) I'm still laughing

Many thanks guy's for coming and keeping me company.
Till next time.
Cheers Nick

Nick, great day yesterday, cheers.

Next time I will turn around and wash the other side

Look forward to seeing the other footage? Did the one I took of you coming down Roych turn out?

Oh and I'm just a bit pleased you made that call to ride yesterday and not today!!
