    Started at Hope, went up……down….., over……, round….. , up some more and down some more! ’twas great!!!!

    Brechfa Raven and Gorlech on Saturday with elliptic. Was very filthy, battered, slightly bruised, and tired by the end – a good ride with some intense sections. Then met with more mates for a relaxed spin around Cwmcarn “twitch” trail on Sunday. I had forgotten how much fun it is, esp. the options at the top. πŸ˜€

    Am half wishing I’d taken my 18sp FS rather than the 9sp HT as I’m feeling beaten-up today. πŸ˜•

    Lap of the Dog & Monkey at Cannock at 9 am on Saturday, at warp speed to get home to make Mrs Adi66 brunch in bed.

    Met up with some old (and a few new friends) at Sherwood Pines yesterday… and I loved the new “down hill” run, especially the ride back up (I’m a bit weird like that I love going UP hills as much as I like going down them)

    Oh plus my regular 32 mile a day commute, 380 miles last week πŸ˜€

    Went for a ride in East Lothian up into the Lammermuir Hills. Found some really nice sections of singletrack trail linked together by (GASP!) dry Land Rover track.

    It was ace and a nice change from the usual waterlogged trails of the west coast. Even managed to find myself in an old Nuclear Observation Bunker and found another one yesterday much closer to home πŸ˜€

    Wasn’t intending to go out ( normal trail buddy couldn’t make it and I had no car ) but a couple of lads I know who do dh invited me to grizedale forest to do the dh black there. Really enjoyed it, even made it into the top ten on strava so well happy πŸ˜€

    First proper run-out for the new Soul build in the Dales. Only one thing needed de-snagging on my return, which is a triumph in my eyes. And who needs a granny gear anyhow?

    Had the chance of a ride around Whinlatter trails so took that, back in Kendal for 1pm felt fairly fresh gave the SO a chance to go out on her road bike but she declined so a loop around Kendal to finish off a good day!

    Aston Hill on Saturday. Quick 10 miles round Common Wood on Sunday. Low on overall mileage for the weekend, but high on fun.

    Two little exploratory pootles on Salisbury Plain for me, yesterday’s was rather foggy!

    Got a tad nervous on Saturday when I realised someone was whistling at me, turned out to be a young chap needing to borrow a pump. He said he was thinking of changing his bike cue much bikey chat. 😳

    Always good to check out new tracks. 8)

    I spent some of my ride yesterday at the very edge of the known world, just staring out at the endless ocean.

    I did a steady 31 miles on road bike saturday. Sunday was at Ladybower with the Mrs. Just walked around res’s (slippery stones). What a beautiful morning, not a breath of breeze and nice sunshine. Loads of mtb’rs about enjoying the great conditions. To make up for lack of ride I had a quick walk up steep hill from C Park (one on left after cattle grid) and a jog back down, saw a young lad with his dad riding up, the young lad very nearly cleaned it – most impressive.

    Pentlands on Saturday. 3 hours, unsure of distance. Bit boggy in places but all rideable. Much fun.

    Spent a few hours in Wharncliffe on Saturday afternoon.

    Enjoyed it, although some of the ‘walkers’ weren’t very friendly!!

    Innerleithen Enduro & XC trails on Sunday, then guided some juniors round the Pentlands on Sunday.

    Nice to get out both days.

    Did 20 miles in Swaledale that included 3000ft of climbing !
    Had a great day and was made more then welcome by the guy at Dalescyclecentre.
    Fremington Edge was a dissapointment to the end of a long ride.

    Sunday was a bimble around the bridleways of East Dartmoor, fairly successfully avoiding a preponderance of mud..

    yesterday was spent gently coaxing a very asthmatic but enthusiastic and determined Mrs Yunki around Haldon.. πŸ˜€
