I did a quick blast round my local trails, very grey and gloomy out with a fair bit of rain - meant I had the trails to myself mainly. Only 21km or so, but a nice way to start 2014.
Who's out riding New Years Day then?
Quick and refreshing lap of Innerleithen.
By that I mean a complete slog in howling wind, sleet and low cloud.
Very pleased that we got back without incident. And quite amused to discover that my smug 'Sealskins have revolutionised my life' riding buddy's Sealskins had actually filled with water so she looked like a case of severe oedema by the time we got in. Noone actually lost and fingers or toes but it felt like a close call.
Gisburn - twas damp!
Got out for an easy (terrain-wise - the weather had other ideas) local loop. Very grey, wet and windy.
Total contrast to the same ride last year.
Post NYE party night ride out of Ambleside over to Troutbeck and down through Skelghyl woods off Jenkins Crag. it was very soggy and trails were like riverbeds
Feeling best I've felt all day!
Jenkins crag is a lovely wee bit of trail, good stuff tomaso!
