    No en-route pics today. Went for an Essex back lanes ride on the gravel bike from Dunmow around to Halstead and back. Only one close pass in 3 1/2 hours of cycling which is an Essex record for me. Pics of the main event at Little Book Cafe.

    Can we spot what is missing from picture 2?

    Took the long way to work this morning as there was a glimpse of sun on the horizon

    I’m guessing you didn’t go down Brick Kiln Lane/Clay Lane in Stebbing or you’d have had your wheels pinched (well maybe in the ’80s)

    @reeksy I did venture along part of Brick Kiln Lane, wheels remained on the bike. It was well before primary school chucking out time though. Stebbing now looks like an expensive place to live nowadays.

    Nice evening for ride last night over the Chase.

    Not sure if this is webs or fungus or something else – looks quite eerie…

    Ain’t been up this way for a while. Set a PR though, which is a combinaton of a lighter bike and a lighter me :-)

    @sandwich – that was my primary school. I think it’s a Steiner or Montessori school now! Was a nice spot in the 80s… but if anything went missing the first place to look was the travellers down the lane…

    Just back from a week of glorious sunshine in the Lakes. I’ve never seen the trails up there so dry.

    Had a cracking ride up Lonscale Scar fell on Tuesday. It really doesn’t get much better than this…

    Dark wet morning. Got a shock when the local trail Emu (Fluffy) appeared from behind a tree in a random location and proceeded to pester me for snacks.
    Had to give the bike a hose down at work… security guy asked if I was riding so fast I had to cool the tyres down.

    Circular route from Ravenstonedale today, via Smardale and Great Asby Scar – great views in all directions!

    Shortish, but fab ride tonight in the Derbyshire Dales with a couple of mates, ending up with Hoffmeister at the local.

    Was rather impromptu too, considering I’d had a BBQ and 3 beers before setting off

    Another 2 KOM:s though…

    My first proper off road ride on an electrical bicycle.

    Still hard work but I got to ride up stuff I normally only ride down and add an extra loop.

    It was fun and that’s what it’s all about.

    Hot, hot, hot Nethy/Ryvoan loop. The sky is so blue and hills so green that the horizon looks like it’s been painted.

    Beinn a Bhuird from Invercauld today for me (booked a couple of short notice days off 😀). That was one long and hot climb. Close to 4000ft high and I was too hot in short sleeves 😀

    Great pics those @jimmy748 – reminds me of being in Molini two weeks ago.

    Used most of the long light last night in the Yat. Stunning conditions, great ride and a couple of beers on the river. Feels a long time since we were muddy and cold, shivering outside the pub!

    Brilliant ride out last night, mix of woodsy singletrack, moorland XC, and some fun enduro lines. Beers & pies on the train back.

    First time out on the hardtail since mid May.

    Early Solstice ride up to the local stone circle (Nine Ladies, Stanton Moor). Lots of hippies, psuedo hippies and a mix of people really, all seemed to be having a lovely time.

    50 mile/4000’ loop to get some venison mince on the singlespeed.

    Weather did rain and sun. 62” worked well.

    I had planned an epic ride today that was going to be all the best trails at Ballater, Aboyne and Banchory and ride between each location. The weather forecast for biblical rain put the kibosh on that so I just headed to Ballater and rode until the rain came…….it didn’t 😂.

    I rode ‘Final Destination’, ‘E.T.’, ‘Mastermind’, ‘The Green Mile’ and ‘Heartbreak Ridge’.
    41 miles and 6000ft of up, legs were shot at the end.

    Very early solstice ride. Back in the day we’d stash beers and ride till midnight. Still great fun and definitely more appropriate for a 6am start tomorrow.

    Quick, short spin out today to support the D of E students on their practice expedition. Beats being in a sweaty, hormone-fuelled classroom all day.
