    Some nice shots there Rich.
    As for your WW hopes, I think you’ve had ample opportunities for that over the last 2 years. Roll on the drought. 8)

    25 mile loop around south downs on sunday. all prety good, apart from West Dean estate where they are logging. Even felt brave so ran a Speedking on the rear, Vert Pro up front , 1 sketchy moment on Kingly Vale , and it was still claggy up top there as always. Amazing for March 1st, i reckon could have worn a short sleeved jersye and base layer and got away with it.

    i remember when i was a lot more in to WW kayaking i used to wish for it to rain, especially for the dart loop because thats always good with a bit of water!
    now in my predominantly mtb’n days i pray for dryness most of the time! that doesnt always work out well when i spend half the year in Wales and te other half in Devon!

    Got back about an hour ago and the bike was so clean it came in through the house (rather than side gate).

    That hasn’t happened since the cold snap just after new year.

    dartmoor was so dry it was on fire in a few spots tonight. not sure if it was controlled burning or not. i doubt it as it was pretty close to the road.

    raining hard now though.

    We saw a few burnt patches yesterday. I’m sure it’s controlled though.

    then i’m guessing it got out of hand. just up above dartmeet it was burnt all along the side of the road..

    Probably the easiest way to get rid of all the dead muttons, left behind by the snow 😯

    It’s my fault, sorry… I decided Spring had arrived and put the suspension forks back on my commuter to properly enjoy all the dry trails. Ooops…

    Don’t panic. It’s just damping down the dust, ready for the weekend 😉

    Currently an inch of snow on the ground to the south of Glasgow and snowing like mad.

    Local trails will be ridable by july !!

    Was out on them 2 weeks ago and had to hikeabike up all the hills due to slush.

    Dont think the road bike will be on for a commute tomorrow somehow.
