    Glorious morning over The Golfie.
    Then went for lunch and Wyn Masters came and sat at our table.
    Really nice guy. Doing some pretty big training rides pre EWS. 2000 meters on his race bike then another 800 on his Ebike yesterday.😮

    Bah, can’t post the photo.

    Imagine a scenic lookout with a sign showing a labelled diagram of weathered volcanic plugs laid out before you, except there is no view, just mist.

    That is my entire week.

    Excursion to bag a couple of North Dales summits I’ve not ridden before. Some great riding and plenty of suffering too.

    Couldn’t find this thread earlier in the weeks. I was at Grizedale Forest on Tuesday. Great lap.

    Back in the Italy office this week, and more after work rides on my new forks, it’s no harder to pedal up, but coming back down is in a different league.

    Then a few runs on the local trails this avo on trail bikes trying to get Mrsstu’s suspension dialled in on her new bike.

    Having ruined myself on Sunday by doing my first full distance triathlon, I decided a “recovery” ride on the SS was the best plan Monday …

    Weather is so good, its compulsory to get out, despite my 54 year old body really needing a rest …

    Different and smaller mountain today after work, less interesting downhill but nice views, followed by Beer & Ice Cream then the final 5 miles back to the hotel, quick shower then more beer and a protein recharge.

    Hour local this evening, rediscovered a trail I’d not ridden for ages and had forgotten how good it is.

    Messing around in local woods. Grew up in the desert and still cannot get over how green this country is.

    Evening loop up and over Wardlaw Hill to test the fix (speed sensor) on the GF’s bike. This is just what I got the eeb for – exploring onto the tops on the feintest of quad track that would have involved well over an hour hike over heather and boggy ground.

    This thread is great! Theres some cracking images! Isn’t this time of year bloody brilliant? 😀

    I woke up early this morning and it was gloriously sunny so I took the hardtail for a quick ten mile loop down the valley. It was perfect! Lovely views out over a hazy Manchester from Holcombe Hill

    40 miler around the local moors, hunting for cool breezes. Need a lie down now.

    First full day in Torbole on Lake Garda. Tried to book a guide but no one seems to be doing it so decided on an early morning shuttle up to the top to do 601 trail from top to bottom which we were told is probably the most technical trail in the area.
    Shuttle dropped us off and we had a 400m vertical climb for 2 miles. At the top we had a 2000m drop over 9 miles which was as technical as anything I’ve done before. The rocks, boulders and drops never let up. Had to walk in a couple of places. The last mile we did in a thunderstorm.
    Finished shattered but elated. Probably bit of more than I could chew.
