    I was reminded of this thread on my ride this evening.

    Sunshine meant I decided to ride on the road round Arthur’s Seat rather than across the track through the middle (bit busy out with walkers). Road riding on a SS MTB is a real bore.

    I later came up to a 90 degree turn through an archway (at the end of a cycle path) at walking pace, only to encounter a fair weather jogger. I stopped instantly (although I could easily have ridden round him), but he proceeded to fall over his own feet and blame me for riding too fast. Idiot.

    None of this ever happened before the clocks changed. Grr.

    First eve ride of the month last night, what a fantastic evening. Trails drier than they have been for months, and the the blast through the woods just after the sun had set was ballistic!

    I felt like i was getting eye strain riding at dusk last night- it was much better when it was properly dark, rather than ‘half-dark’

    Delighted with a bit more daylight. It was getting dark here at about 4 o’clock. Grim.
