Perfect TEN
« on: April 24, 2011, 07:54 PM »
Great trip for Old Fools 10. Great weather and some great sessions with the boys! Sorry there's not a lot of action pics, but I was too busy riding!

Micklefield Skatepark, Friday April 22nd...

Had the place to ourselves...






Nice shapes here...




Ben Manual - late pic, not unclicked!




Chris Hardy nose manual



Hitcher tried a bunch of these, then proceeded to pull one to canadian out - 2nd time he's ever done it!



Other shenanigans were had before everyone headed to Leeds and met up later for curry and beers and tall tales and laughter....

Saturday Morning 23rd April....

Looks like a hot day in Leeds....


Have bike, will travel....


Parsons Cross Skatepark, Sheffield....








Dean was carving the bowled corner...


Had a great session - loads of good stuff went down, then, just as we were thinking of heading to the next stop, it stared to rain....and boy did it rain....hailstones and flash floods!

'Fools beating a hasty retreat as the fattest raindrops hit the hot concrete...


Flatcap sheltering in his car as the deluge begins...


...then the hailstones came down (after 27 degree sunshine!)....


...then the road turned into a river.....


...we tried to escape and join the others, but got turned back by the Police as the road ahead was flooded!!

After driving through floods to get to high ground and getting in touch with everyone, we all arranged to meet up at a spot near Doncaster....but the rain got there at the same time!



Figured the sun would dry out the concrete, but in the meantime, everyone sat about and had a chat and looked about for something to do...


Rope swing anyone?


Went for a wander over to the nearby track - it was a big 'un! - but in need of some attention....









Bowls were taking a while to dry...


The guys smoothed out a bit of a lip for a flyout session, me and Aileen went off to find some refreshments...


The locals looked on, bemused at the old fools and the funny things we had on our handlebars.....those will be brake levers boys!


When we got back, concrete was mainly dry and session began....


Chris Hardy was getting some good lines over the hips....


The boys got their BBQ going and me & Aileen headed back to Leeds to our hotel, another roadtrip in the bag...

Boris burns his sausages.....again...!


Marks for Old Fools? TEN out of TEN....
