he fabricates poor excuses until we all nag him at which point he caves to peer pressure and comes anyway.

Cheaper for me to catch the train and then contribute to petrol. Not sure if I can go though, hopefully I'll be concerned with building a press for boards :) I also came off my longboard bombing it at ~1.5 mph today and split open my chin so I'll have stitches which aren't ideal for going boarding. Still waiting for my brakes to get finished too, argh.

You mean the same 'Lucky' Azzpad that you were wearing when your wheel fell off at high speed last year?!

Well that was fun! We clocked up 12km of riding thru 1140m descent in 26hours, including 2 night rides, and we found an awesome new run 'The pendulum' with 6 switchback corners.....:D

Words, pics and video footage to follow soon...

Sorry I missed this one, sounds good- had to get the car sorted for MOT. 2 bloody hours to change 1 bulb, gaaaaaaaaaaa

Made up for it by hiking Cairngorm with Allan and MJ. Forgot my boots and had to ride in skate shoes, which sucked. The track is ridiculous fun though, that rocked.
Old enough to know better, been there done that...
