Brockenhurst Blast – 18 October 2013

All-day remote start rides always give one that little sense of childhood adventure. And what better way to revert to childhood memories than to start it all with a hot brew made on a Camping Gaz stove. Neil had kindly set up all this logistics and what a surprise to find out that his wife Elaine had baked a delicious apple cake specially for us. Yummy!  Barry then expertly led us on a 40 miler through the New Forest maze of trails, complete with a welcoming lunch break at the Red Shoot pub in Ringwood.  Hearing the thup-thup of a double  puncture was not enough to deflate Peter’s morale, but it was all hands on deck to fix this as the weather was closing in at end of day. A great day out on the MTB and so a big thank you Barry for organising this!
