So who took advantage of this beautiful Sunday?
I was a bit gutted that I didn’t get out yesterday (Saturday). There were some nice sunny intervals, but the usual weekend errands took over and some last-minute Christmas shopping saw me stuck in traffic 🙁
Anyway, woke up this morning to blue skies and bright sunshine. Temperatures had got down to -1 overnight so there was a nice covering of frost. Managed to get a 12 mile figure-of-8 ride along local bridleways (near Pudsey, Leeds) and I’d forgotten the wonderful feeling of riding on frozen mud and firm trails (some of the muddiest sections were still soft though). Obligatory pic:

snowing heavily in the alps, so light was really flat. had a good day yesterday in the powder though. was nursing a sore neck from falling into a wee gully yesterday, so only went out for an hour or so today. tomorrow is looking better weather wise, so will probably work in the evening to make the most of the day.Posted 6 years agotwotonpredatorSubscriber
a late afternoon blast round delamere to give the new lyriks a go. in true delamere fashion it was muddy and slushy as hell. but all in a great ride.
i am now shattered and feel just like the person who drank far too much last night and slept on his mates floor, has ate hardly anything except a bit of soreen that I found in the cake tin that has been there for at least 6 weeks by my calculations. it was still squishy but tasted a bit odd!Posted 6 years agodevsMember
55km around a very snowy Moray from the coast to a forest inland. Saw the tracks of another biker but there were lots of XC skier tracks. Startled a big red deer and in its confusion it ran right along side me for 30yds or so before jumping away to the right. I was on sheet ice so couldn’t brake and was very concerned about getting a kick as it was thrashing its back end around.Posted 6 years ago
