Johnsy's Report

9th May 2012

“A mobile phone (also known as a cellular phone, cell phone and a hand phone) is a device that can make and receive telephone calls over a radio link whilst moving around a wide geographic area. It does so by connecting to a cellular network provided by a mobile phone operator, allowing access to the public telephone network. By contrast, a cordless telephone is used only within the short range of a single, private base station.” - Wikipedia

The handy thing about mobile phones is that they can fit into your pocket or ‘camelback’ allowing the rider to keep in contact with the main group if for whatever reason they get split up. When the said phone is left in the house then it is as much use as a chocolate fireguard.

As far as the ride went, for the most of us it went like this:

Brokeback,Garlic 2, Ruperra Fort, Lisvane Woods , a cheeky singletrack near Drop of Death before a couple of pints in the Meanllwyd. Then descending via part of Ade’s trail to the T.A. for lots of curry, chips and rice.

For Budgie and Russ it went like this:

Brokeback , Garlic 2, back to Garlic, “Anthony…Where are you? Anthony… answer your bl**dy phone“ And so on and so on. It would seem that Anthony decided to get himself lost and in true Bear Grylls style made his way to the Ruperra fort alone. However he had failed to read Wikipedia before coming out and therefore left Budgie and Russ searching the woods, getting split up and the only consultation was instead of finding ‘orrible Ant they came away with Daf who they found loitering in the forestry.

So next time take your phone with you.
