Had a few hours riding over Winterfold and Pitch this afternoon/tonight. Hard to beat it - trails in great condition (shame about the repairs on supernova!!), weather great, cog slipping disappeared, riding well (for me), found a more natural speed and rhythm, loads of nice folk out there, no pressure on any trails (apart from the embarrassment of watching the big party showing how the descent from Pitch down to the W'mill pub should be ridden! Will I ever be able to ride like that?).
Apart from the man-eating branch that impaled me in the T trails, all was well. Nice to escape from the crap going on in the world for a few hours. Bliss!
