Eleven Dorset Rough Riders at Badbury Rings (Wimborne)
The rings looked mystical today. Ground still wet with dew.
Not quite rideable.
Wide blue yonder.
Only one puncture today despite the newly cut hedges.
Towards Tollard Royal
Mixed views about the Larmer Tree folly. Marmite.
Grassy climb out from Cashmoor
Welcome shade at Harley Gap. Getting hot now.

Couldn’t do a ride without a stop at Gabby’s

Is rough rider slang for cider in the Dorset like what it is in Devon..?
my day went :
2.5 stone Yunki Jr in the baby seat.. some nice disused railway action.. a bit of riverside singletrack and a little pootle round the woods..Posted 6 years ago
followed by swings in the park.. (swing obsession) which led to tears at hometime..
Followed by a puncture.. and a knackered spare tube.. got home two hours later than expected eventually (with another flat and knackered hub).. 😀PeterPoddyMember
No hills no rocks, no fun
That is such a shonky, blinkered attitude. Riding bikes if fun. It doesn’t matter where, how or when. It’s about being outside, with some mates, in some beautiful, peaceful countryside in fantastic weather.
Every year I try to do a ride like this in Autumn. It’s what gets me through the winter: Spending a whole day, doing a lot of miles and just being outside in nice weather. One STWer calls it “Taking the bike for a walk” and that’s it in a nutshell.
Every ride has it’s place, Alps, trail centres, bridleways….
It looks fantastic to me!Posted 6 years ago
