Someone will probably moan that this doesn't want to make them ride.
Sometimes it's just about being outside looking at a view.

Llanberis path is grippy as hell even in the wet. It's pretty much completly straight and all the rocks are at good right angles to the track. Just try not to brake and hold on!

I really wish I'd had a decent camera with me for this one, just a phone pic unfortunately

I'm not too up on my photography but i'd have thought unless you're using filters then shooting into the sun is always going to be tricky to get a decent image.

Doug - as usual, stunning photos. The first place I'm visiting when I win the lottery tomorrow is the Basque region.

A nice view of Sète, the Mt Saint Clair and the Thau lagoon, from Aumes in the Pezenas country. Pezenas is a well known place for British people in the South of France :mrgreen:. The track

This thread has come back to life quite nicely - Loving Tomstickland's night shot, The Nant-y-aran one is nice but looks like it could have done with a pan up and right slightly to get a bit of horizon/sky in shot, and the Doethie Valley is a fantastic shot - I'd ride that trail for sure!

Richie's shots I liked initially but then they faded a little - first one I like but I think the rider needs to be sharper and better lit, the second one is a bit centred and obviously taken froma standing position by the trail, lower angle might have been nice and a bit of angle to get the direction of travel.

I hope my pictures meet the requirements for the thread.
Over the years Ive done lots of trail centres and cross country riding, but this is my one and only time to the peak district (so far) and was also the best days riding I have had yet.
