Finished a contract late July. Went on a long family holiday. Decided I really couldn't be bothered to work again for a bit. Until we have to start stealing and boiling the neighbours' shoes for food
Not ridden these woods for ages. Vaguely remembered some trails. Found a few more. Took this while hiding from a massive rain storm which made all the roots (of which these woods have many) slick. Fairly sure I've fallen into that hole when I first rode up here.
Been a bit of building as well I see Rode that twice - I'd just like to say again it was blooming wet - first time lack of comittment, nearly nosed it, second time it went very well until I hit a patch of mud on landing and nearly went out the front door. I didn't try it a third time!
My conclusions from this ride were a) it's good to go back and ride stuff you used too and b) I'm not desperate to find a job while the trails are not a muddy mess.
Wonder what I'll do tomorrow.... actually I know what I'll be doing and it'll involve a garden fork not a mountain bike!
