yes indeed there was a lot of washing and cleaning to do after this one.

Hobbling around injured in the freezing cold rain trying to pack up the campsite and wondering how to clean the muddy bike to put into the back of the car.. perhaps not the fondest moment of this weekend?

Ok weather man.. good joke.. very funny! if I'm a good boy next year can I please book in fling weather like 2011 and 2012.. they were crackers!
