« on: July 30, 2008, 11:32:20 AM »
Well here a few pics of my little adventure, got around 400 pics to sort through and pic some good ones out of, but here is a handful showing a few bits and bobs of the trip :)

Muahahahahha!

My friend, taken when we we're both doing around 20mph!

My catalogue pose! :D In a stream near Grassmere Youth Hostel

A little pool we had a swim in at the bottom of Scafell Pike :)

View from Scafell Pike's summit

The Motley crew at the top of Scafell Pike

Vic Farmer at the top too

Near the summit of Ben Nevis

At the summit!

Swisstool at the summit

And the Farmer again!

Champagne at the top to celebrate (with classy drink receptacles!)


I'll get some more up when i get the chance :)

Ta very muchly :) It was a Swiss heavy trip although there were two Crunches there which i have pics of as i noticed a couple of differences between them! :o

I just popped out of his slipstream to snap that pic :D We managed to hit 42mph later that day :o That was fun :D :D :D

Where you the only one who had so many tools with you ???  :D

Stunning pics.Pleased you had a great time.

....... yes i was :D Of course! My tool loadout was:
1x Swisstool
1x Crunch
1x Farmer
1x Climber
1x Generic Bike Tool
1x F1

Might have weighed a bit but all of them came in useful at one stage or another :)

Ta mate :) It is a great laugh, even if you don't actually cycle very far each day it would still be worth it just for the laughs :)

That would be a Tesco value aluminium camping mug, my mate got it for about £1.50 i think. (Tesco is a big supermarket chain in the UK)
