Sorry for the silence

But wedding planning has been No. 1 on the list for a few weeks now and with the big day about a week away don't expect much from me for the next month :( Just booked a cottage in Scotland with what looks like loads of great riding, beeches and distilleries on the door step. Plus we will have another 8days to tour around if we want and probably visit some of the 7Stanes trails and other great places north of the border.

OK, over and out for now

Been back a while

But only just got round to posting anything. I have some photos on the Picasa slide show below, more (and better) photos can be found on Sheldon's Flikr account.

The trip was everything a road-trip should be; long miles, weird people, bad food and good beer. Throw in some gorgeous weather and we had it made. From a kit point of view everything worked 100% although if I did it again I would ditch a lot of the snacks and hot drinks (plenty of pubs, cafes and shops along the way) The coffee mug/press while pretty good would be swaped for a towel. The best bit of kit had to be the bungee net as you could use it to dry your shorts, carry jaffa cakes and catch a lift from other riders :)
