I was told by ex-army that not being 5 min early is being late, but being 4 hours early is overdoing it. Squiz and Aron were on autopilot and thought that the ride started at 10 am. But hey, the weather was glorious and the certainly did not miss out. The rest of us turned up in Speculation car park, as agreed, at 2 pm. I have not been on the Verderer’s for a year now. I would not call it blue any more. It shows a lot of wear and tear and sports some new tricky steps and guess what, potholes. Still we made the loop without any falls. Others were not so lucky. On the last down hill bit, we were waved down by some one from the forestry commission and asked to walk past paramedics and a casualty. A young lady had an unlucky fall. When Aron and I passed they were putting a neck brace on her. Daniel was asked to guide the ambulance to the casualty but they had then to attend a little girl who, at the beginning of the Verderer’s , had collided with a tree. Most of us had enough after one loop. Daniel and Leon did the Freeminer trail and William and I did the Family trail as a warm down. Thanks to everyone for coming and for making it such a pleasant ride. See you all soon.
