40 riders signed up for the inaugural Mach’ n Back and 35 turned up to take part. The weather also decided to come along and join the party … the rain, high winds and outright miserable weather of the past few weeks gave way to cold, frosty and sunny, that’s right sunny!

With no fixed start time there was plenty of time to drink tea, eat toast and generally faff about … everyone (alright, nearly everyone) had a pretty good idea what lay in front of them with regard to mileage and terrain.

Just as the forecast predicted it’ll be another cold night tonight, minus figures will certainly be making their presence felt … anyone taking the gamble of a summer sleeping bag may only just survive to regret it. We’ll see what tomorrow brings!
