They’re getting shorter…

A 1 hour ride? It hardly seemed worth it as I set off from the car (after delivering Matt his tea) at Rivington. Luckily, Rivi is quite a lot of fun and you can get a decent blast from the trails round there if you’ve an hour to spare, so after riding past the scary fallen tree I threw myself up a few climbs and chased everyone I saw down (including the roadie riding up the road from Belmont, raar) until it started to get dark. An enjoyable blast that loosened my headset a bit.

Yes, I paused briefly to take a picture, though the camera wouldn’t focus due to having so little battery power it just died straight after taking that pic, so there’s a lot of photoshop filtering going on…still, you get the idea – countryside, sunset, nice bike and so on.

Hopefully the driver’s seat of the berlingo has dried out now; I forgot to take a change of clothes, so i had to drive home sat in what felt like a puddle (of WATER, before you start…from the earlier RAIN, jeez).
