1) as you saw... no snow in town :laugh:
2) once up on the fell .. suddenly thought Oh s***t and no were to turn round
3) not easy to stay relaxed for the conditions with you checks clenched :whistle:
4) only came off because of a pot hole (you hit what you look at :pinch: )

Got in same situation a couple of weeks later with the IAM group over in Bowland. Stayed on the bike that time :woohoo:

Come and enjoy the dales. I will be thinking of you whilst at friends with a couple of bevvies :evil:

Looking forward to it. Eric, can you have your phone on in case I cant see you guys in settle?
Maybe a bit wet and windy but not cold. I`ll have my winter layers on anyway and I`ve got new toasty grips fitted.
Just got in from downstairs- cleaned chain, tightened and oiled. Packed tool-bag. Checked oil and gave a squirt of acf here and there.
Now having a whiskey and coke for tomorrows fuel :)

Oh yeah, something to add....
Last sunday I lost the body of my Blackburn mountain bike pump on the rocky section of Rivington track (north end of Georges Lane). I`ve had it for 9 years and although it was grumpy at times, it`s never failed to inflate a tyre at the side of the road. I would feel awful going trailriding without an airpump so picked up a new pump from halfords. I bought the one Specialone has recommended in another current thread (thanks, specialone). Dual action, multivalve, valve lock, pressure guage, ally body and all that. Fits nicley in the tool-bag. Halfords are having a sale on pumps ending tomorrow if anyones interested.
cheers,
chris
