IOM April 2014
Hi Mark thanks for organizing last week’s trip, Rik and I really enjoyed ourselves, I was especially pleased we had no rain.Mark B and Paul were great, looked after their group well and kept the riding flowing both days; it was a good plan to get both groups at the same lunch stop. Mark set a fast pace and I certainly got a good work out also showed my fitness is not as good as I thought! I am confident if anyone had asked Mark he would have slowed the pace, in fact he did on Sunday but still no easier to keep up for me.Thanks again to you and your team, Olly Cooke
Hi Mark. Many thanks for a brilliant weekend in the Isle of Man, well organised, catering for all ages and capabilities.I was 'Billy No Mates' having not met any of the group before, but from the off I was made welcome and we had a good laugh along the way. I've been going to the IOM for over 30 years and it was good to ride some trails I hadn't been on before.I like the 'second man waits' method of keeping together which worked well. One recommendation would be that the 'sweeper' wears a HV vest or something similar so that he can be spotted more easily when waiting.Look forward to meeting up again soon.All the best regards Bob Morgan
Hi Mark thanks for a great trip enjoyed riding somewhere different although i was out of my depth at times lol.Good bunch of lads enjoyed meeting/riding with and all came back in one piece.Thanks again hope to ride with you again soon. Rob Clarke
Hi Mark many thanks for a great weekend in the Isle of Man, well organised, and all riding levels were catered for. As I was traveling on my own I was a bit worried but once I met the other members I was soon made to feel at ease. Brilliantly organised from start to finish, Thanks again for the tow back to Ramsey…. Ian Williams
Hi Mark. See letter below to Danny, likewise a really big thank you, for your care and guidance on our trip. I have watched my video clips many times, and am embarrassed; when I hear myself bleating on that I want to go home. You encouraged me on and we ended up having a terrific day eventually.
My sentiments are also expressed to Danny that I was a bit out of my depth, but I honestly did enjoy it, and appreciate all you did. It was very well organised, and planned, and I wish you every success for the future. Many Thanks again. Best Regards Jeff Price
Hi Dan. At long last I have recovered from out Isle of Man Trip. It was fantastic if a bit tiring for me, I have decided that my Little Serro is just too small for me, perhaps not when standing, but most certainly when sitting down and legging it, my knees come up to my chin. Not ideal, as I seem to do it a lot.
I have advertised it, and am planning to buy a second hand KTM Freeride, hope fully all the bits will fit into place for me. Many Thanks for all your care and consideration, I realised that I was a bit of a liability, and quite frankly was a bit out of my depth, certainly in some of the sections.
I will return to The Isle of Man, but at a slower pace next time. Jeff Price
