I did the Blue route on BH Mon with the wife and my 8 YO Son, then when he went off to play on the fort i thought i'd nip off the Red route, Its fairly local to me and as its fairly peddaly it keeps me topped up fitness wise...........
Problem is on the first bit of track between the two metalled roads i was confronted by 3 women ! looked like Gran, Mother, Daughter combo ? Turned out to be the 3 billy goats gruff !
They refused point blank to move and obstructed my path ! i tried reasoning with them but as far as they were concerned it was a path for all ?
I then encountered numerous Dads with their sons on tiny bikes trying hard to ride the red ! ubfortunately some of the grown ups had Lycra on so i suppose the kids on to a loser with the over zelous dad !
THEN on the bit of a Berm section i was pretty much flat out when i encountered a Big Dog ! Two grown ups and a kid on a battery operated trials bike !!!!!!
None of who'm wanted to move ?
Then there were all Pikeys on cronkers cycling the wrong way road asking which was the quickest way back to Forest Town !!! WTF !
My Question is this !
Should i take up tiddlywinks to avart giving myself stomach ulcers OR Join in with majority of folk i saw on the trail yesterday and just do WTF i like Hollyhocks to every one else ?
