Just got back from my first ride tonight. Was really really really good funn. Bombed round town for a bit then hit up a carpark at the new homebase to chill and get our skids and track-stands on Lock. Then a bit more bombing around! Big Shout out to Ross and Ryan who were really welcoming and gave some really sound advice. Got some photos which I’m gonna post up when I get them developed! Same time next week?
