- Today's Ride
Just thought I’d romanticise a bit about this mornings ride. Nothing particularly gnarly, not a big mountain or anything like that. Just a solid 21 miles on my local stuff, around 700m of climbing.
But what a day. I’ve been off the bike for ten days or so due to sinusitis and other things, so was desperate to get out. The trails were pretty much dry, even a bit of dust at some points. I rode pretty well in my opinion and cleaned one particular climb that has a steep bank cruelly halfway up that I haven’t got up clean since last year due to the rain and mud. Ripped a few corners without fear of the bike sliding out at the critical moment.
Saw loads of jays, and a couple of buzzards into the bargain. Even the dog walkers seemed in a reasonable mood.
Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate a slide around in the mud, but the novelty was starting to wear off. Roll on spring.Posted 4 years agotizzzzleMember
Surrey Hills. Surprising quiet but trails were running like it was summer! Great ride this morning. New trail on Leith good fun but will definitely be the downfall of a few of the weekend warrior mud guard and fluorescent lycra crowd. The steep droppy bits creep up on you blind.Posted 4 years ago
Suffice to say didn’t get even one nod or ‘good morning’ from the sour faced roadies ubiquitous to that particular part of Surrey 🙄
