    UK pics with El Salt

    Haven't posted much here recently. Just thought I'd share a couple of pics of some UK riding, a few weeks back.

    The first is with my el Salt and the second is my mate Timo on his Santa Cruz.

    Just thought most of the UK riding pics on here are quite jumpy. We have some cracking riding terrain here!

    Apols for the quality - taken with my phone.

    Forgot to mention its the Peak District, the UK's first national park. Its in England and between Sheffield and Manchester.

    Oh and I'm not the Michellin man, it was pretty windy!

    It seems Timo is the "roll in the mud" type

    Cool pics, thanks for sharing.

    Mr Pink - Aye, I do. Usually around Coniston/Walna Scar/Grizedale Forest. I get over to the Howgills a little too, lucky if see another bike around those parts. Grew up next to the peaks - used to get up there as a 14 year old on my alpine stars.

    4" rockers/Rev air U turn/Rp3/Juicy carbon/XO twist/Thompson/truvative bars & crank/Xo & X9 mechs/Hope Xc on 717. Great UK bike for the longer rides.

    Not as bad as I thought really. Only on the rare dusty days does it not get a proper clean down after each ride though.

    Justa - Long story! A conversation I think I had on STW with you? I'm in the Peaks most weekends. You're around Derby aren't you? I think we said we should get out for a ride a while back.
