Thanks all. In retrospect nearly 2.5 hours of stopping feels excessive, but we weren't there for the FKT...
@Retro_bastard yep we got lucky on so many fronts. Weather, trains, no mechanicals, no crashes etc. We daren't do the ride again for wont of tempting fate
@yetidamo yup, it was him on road pedals. You can take the roadie off road but you can't make him drink, etc
@Glws yeah with NLD last weekend it's been a good fortnight of gravel! Were you with the PNS crew there?
