Yeah so we had an early start in South London and the weather was looking pretty grim. Not overly psyched on this we decided to take some evasive action and went south…WAY SOUTH!
We actually went a few 1000 miles south to the tropical island of Tenerife where we hooked up with Rubio and The Make’s foreign rider, Pika, who we needed to complete the team (4 UK riders + 1 foreign rider). They’ve provided us with lodgings for the trip and yep, things are looking pretty sweet indeed. The weather is currently clear blue skies overhead at about 25+ Celsius. Not bad at all. We rode some trails and then headed off into Laguna to ride some street. This is how the rest of the week should roll, just exploring the island and having a laugh along the way. Stay tuned for more and follow @theMake on Twitter for all the gossip, along with myself and Matty Lambert on Twitter for media-based tweetage – @NathanBeddows & @MattyLambert
