- what did you do in the sun today?
Went for a short but fun mtb ride in the Peak District with my other half. We had a few goes at The Beast at Hope Cross, as my aim is to be able to ride the whole thing on my hard tail. Just need a bit more practise. After 4 attempts at one hard bit under the stern eye of my OH, I cleared it and whooped like a monkey! Could’ve stayed all day but didn’t have time. Spent the afternoon gardening with my 8 year old son, making the most of him wanting to help!Posted 4 years agomindmap3Member
56 miles on the road bike today….and I’ve now got some shit tan lines! I’ve officially got a roadie tan! Enjoyed it though, the roads round here were pretty quiet which was nice.
I was going to go out on the MTB but decided that most of the places I ride would be heaving. I also need/want to get fitter so thought a descent (by my standards) rude in the road bike would be beneficial.Posted 4 years agoStefMcDefSubscriber
Five-mile morning walk with the dugs on the Hamstead estate near Newtown Creek on the Isle of Wight, in an atmospheric sea mist which the sun burned away while I was out. A truly lovely part of the world. Strangely harmonious musical accompaniment provided by ships sounding foghorns of various pitch out in the Solent.
Working since I got back though. 😥Posted 4 years agochivesMember
Left the house (coastal West Dorset) at 6am, spent two hours riding in thick fog before the sun broke through near Blagdon Hill, had a tool around the Quantocks before riding home. 91 miles door to door, bit toasted but had a great time. They have dust on the Quantocks, real crumbly dust! So not quite a coast to coast (& back) but not far off.
