    Unbelievable weather,I’m jealous. When it eventually stopped raining up here managed to get a couple of very damp and very muddy hours in…almost wearing out both sets of sintered brake pads in the process.Muddy kit clogging up the washer as I write

    Also had a wonderful day in Dartmoor too. Beautiful weather, beautiful scenery as always. Absolutely slaughtered ourselves though, I can hardly move at the moment.

    Also on Dartmoor today, well bivvy last night, then riding in shortsleeves at 7.30am this morning. Now its beer time.

    Great weather but the trails look far too extreme to me.

    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.

    Pony treking on bicycles!!, thanks for that TJ.

    I’m just jealous peeing it down all day in Newcastle.

    Only little hills today. Just wanted to do some fast dusty trails before it all turns to porridge…

    Leigh to Northwich along the canal for me and the wife. Back home by road and rained all the way home to.
    But a very good bike ride.

    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..
    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).. 😀

    I’m a jealous northerner as it was moderately cloudy today, but hay at least we have hills 🙂

    Meantime about 150 miles further north, getting a little bit further away from the flat earth society and still no rain ! Not til tonight anyway………

    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!
