I've not posted any photo's on here before but I decided to try and take a couple during my ride on Sunday morning as the weather was so good, and here are just a few.

Being local to Dalby I usually head straight there, but I decided to ride some natural stuff around Langdale End and Darncombe. There was nothing exactly technical to ride, but armed with a map and my new GPS I found a few nice routes with a few more to go back and explore further. Smile



Not a cloud in the sky




This had a nice fast run into the ford but was slippy on the way out!





Another ford which got a lot deeper in the middle than I had realised!



As I was taking this picture, a biker came from the opposite direction and carried his bike over using the stepping stones. Straight through the drink for me Very Happy



Hope you like Very Happy

Cheers bud.

Rather different conditions today less than a week later - a foot of snow in Dalby.

Thanks mate. It's a 2008. Got it from new and loved it since. Not sure exactly how many miles but a good couple of thousand at least. I'm going to be trying to add a bit if colour to it with gear/brake cables, grips etc.

How long have you had yours? You enjoying it?

Thanks for all the comments on my bike and pics Very Happy

Hi Flimbo,

Bought it late 08,Its a 09 model but its got a 2010 front end as i cracked the frame under the top tube.Westbrook cycles and Cannondale were excellent in replacing the frame Smile .I've done about 4 1/2k on it from trail centres to moorland and the Lakes.Best bike i've had Wink
