- Monday Morning Debrief No. 20 – Spring! What did you do?
Friday afternoon cycled up to Dartmoor straight after work…
Saturday cycled back from Dartmoor and fitted a trailgator to my daughter’s bike to give her a turbo boost up those 1 in 5 hills that frequent our locality (fine tuning/adjustment still needed)…
Sunday, dropped the kids off at a skatepark in Paignton whilst off out on some errands…Posted 4 years agoSandwichSubscriber
43-ish miles on Saturday in short sleeves. Saw loads of deer. There was dust, there was sunburn. There was also an angry pensioner on a bit of cheeky trail!! The last descent back to the Orwell shore was fab and the bluebells can’t be far off.Posted 4 years ago
Sunday a club ride around Tunstall with Nutella cake to finish (made by me). A cracking weekend and all the more enjoyable for not about to succumb to an infection like last week.ahsatSubscriber
Friday (first dry day of Lake District honeymoon), took the bikes up Helvellyn. p20 rode down all of it, even the snow patch on Lower Man – I was a bit more of a girl!
Saturday walked Red Pike, High Stile, High Crag and decided though it was bridleway, never to bring a bike up there (well the bit from Scarths Gap looked fun)
Sunday – had sore muscles, drank coffee and stroked shiny things in outdoor shops and chuckled at the people at Whinlatter Challenge in the rain! And then had the reality of coming home….! Major post wedding come down!
Now sat at my desk for the first time in 2 weeks really struggling to concentrate and refreshing my emails to see if my new bike parts have been dispatched!Posted 4 years agohoneybadgerxSubscriber
Managed to have one of my best and worst days on the bike on Sunday. Finally completed the new steed and set off for High Cup Nick from Cow Green. Cycling down to the dam I thought ‘wow, I’ve really shaken this chest infection’ five mins later I was dry retching on the first climb… given the uphill nature of the ride out, plus a headwind, plus the lung capacity of an asthmatic hamster, I managed an awesome 5kph on the outward leg. Finally arriving at the nick, was busy taking in the amazing views, and promptly decked it at 2mph whilst crossing the stream and somehow got completely drenched in about two inches of water. On the bright side I loves my new bike, just needs a rider that can keep up with it…Posted 4 years agotommyhineSubscriber
Choose an amazing weekend for my first visit to the lake district.Posted 4 years ago
Friday – Lonscale Fell on Friday afternoon was amazing fun.
Saturday – A couple of loops around Whinlatter was superb in the sun.
Sunday – A very precarious ascent of Scafell Pike on foot in shorts, almost zero visibility at the top and driving hale stones and a trail that was covered in snow made for very difficult navigation but a great challenge. I was happy to get down into some warm and dry clothes.
I shall be returning for some more natural stuff in the future.OCBMember
