- routes north of reading???
only the garmin stuff, but its really easy to get the files onto the machine, just had to save them into the new file folder of the garmin whilst it was plugged in, then disconnect it and presto they were there. cant see them on garmin connect tho but i guess i will after they have been ridden.Posted 5 years ago
well i did the route supplied by cinnamon_girl (many thanks for that 8) ) and it ended up being a truly brilliant ride. 23 ish miles in just over 3 hours, had to stop for a rather large puncture (torn sidewall that no amount of stans will fix :cry:)also had to stop to pick my lungs up… bloody hell some of those hills are steep!!! saw a few other people on the trail, mostly walkers who were mostly polite, some horse riders who were all nice and some miserable roadies, most of whom ( apart from one who i had a good chat with and a couple who said hi) ignored me completely… whats with that??
all in all a great ride in some rather nice countryside…
and now for some pics!! (which for some unexplained reason are upside down and sideways?!!!?)

Glad you enjoyed it! Please sort those pics out, I’m getting dizzy from craning my neck. 😀
My impression is that mtb’ers are not liked in the Chilts, reckon I’ve been blanked there more times than anywhere else as well as being involved in several altercations. Just keep smiling. 8)
What a pain about the tyre though. 🙁Posted 5 years agodiscoduckMember
Looks like you had the weather as well
As for being acknowledged, I wouldn’t worry. I bet you made No attempt to wear Lycra and your top was probably un coordinated with your bottoms.
Roadies hate that, and motorists, and pedestrians, speed bumps, traffic lights, Zebra crossings, instant coffee………….
That sort of thing, as CG said just smile and nodd your head NonchalantlyPosted 5 years agodiscoduckMember
Daftvader, it’s the Lycra it Chafes, makes you wince and somehow clamps your scrotum to your leg, the end result is ball ache, imagine dangling your sack above the rear tyre so it gets swept betwixt the U brake and tyre it kinda feels like that, or so I would imagine, allegedly.
This results in the Thousand mile stare, the lack of communication is all part of the “I’m racing not riding” scene,
CG apologies for my inane ramblings and the picture that you have in your head of…… Well sorry,Posted 5 years ago
