- Bit wet out [PICS]
Couldn’t face another mud bath this morning, so took the CX bike out on slicks to have a look at the flooding here (Herefordshire, River Wye). It’s epically bad.
All of that used to be a field. It’s lapping up against the road edge. Roads are mostly rivers and twice I had to turn back. The first time I attempted to ford this:
When it looked like my bottle cage was about to float off, I set a course for the shore! Didn’t make it tho and had very wet legs/feet for the last hour.
I’ve seen flooding here before but never this bad. The roads are in a shocking state as well.
It was good to get out and put some miles in, but it made me realise how long it’s going to take to dry out. More rain tomorrow 🙁Posted 4 years ago
It’s south Herefordshire between Ross on Wye and Hereford. Basically bottom of the Wye valley. That’s one of my favourite road loops – normally a 40k blast with lovely views of the river and then climbing over the tops.
Today it was a study of concentration, fording technique and mudguard envy. Glad I had the disc brakes tho!
My mate sent me a pic of a pub near him close to Leominster. Had a similar ‘lakey’ feel about it…Posted 4 years ago
