Happy new year!

Yup thats another done n dusted yeehaa!
I hope you got all the nice stuff you wanted, including a big belly.
I got some cool stuff and when my computer is working properly again you shall see it here first.
Me n the 3b crew did loads of good boating and biking over the festive holidays including a very wet n muddy ride at Abbey Ford north shore in Okehampton check Jims blog for some more pics. a few nice runs on the Upper Dart and lots of playboating on the Loop and Flower pots.
Playboating, it's the new creeking.
A long cross country ride that i was tricked into is the Nutcracker, a nice 10 plus miler in the very steep valley of Lustleigh Cleave near Bovey Tracey on the eastern edge of Dartmoor."a really good descent, in the top ten in the country" i was assured,"just a bit peddley".... all %^&$£%$*in peddley if you ask me.
Any way it is a nice if up hill ride with a great technical descent. Very steep with lots of large bits of granite placed randomly. The end result being i bust my forks! im now £130 lighter in the pocket but i do have a set of Mazzocci Super T's that feel like new on my bike. Shame its not back yet.

Lustleigh Cleave is also home to the River Bovey, A very steep boulder section of river in a depp wooded valley, lovely i hear you cry! Well ive got news for you...
It's not.Its full of things.. mostley green and made of wood.see the pictures for more and make up your own mind.
thats all for now.
Oh and a big shout to all the cool people that made NYE very much fun. You kow who you are.
