The GT got its first proper ride as a mountain bike today when I met up with Chris and his scout group for a ride around the red route at Sherwood Forest. I also got to try out my new Thule roofbars on my little Hyundai i10.

Tandem safely loaded on Mart's car for a ridiculously early start to Manchester to start our 64 mile ride to Blackpool. Sunday morning as well. Good grief. Two pork pies and a pack of sausages hidden in the pannier where Mart can't find them.
The start was at some sort of football pitch that I'd never heard of before and people were talking with strange and worrying accents.
It looked like we wouldn't be cycling alone.
