50 miler over to Beeston Castle, nasty headwind on the return, plus my usual coffee stop closed due to Covid (not even takeaway) meant I had to resort to Costa in Chester frown

This is at the top of Borras Head near Wrexham (Peckforton Hills in the distance, which is where I was headed....)



The road down to Holt properly flooded after yesterday’s rain.

Took a spin out to Salisbury today


Got a bit soaked when passing through Fovant.

A bit of a different way home, instead of taking the A30 the whole way again.



All told, a little bit of an ode to my ride a year ago...

A wet and muddy ride out to the Surrey Hills yesterday morning. This is at the top of Barrys and the keen eyed among you will notice the lack of a chain. Yup, caught the rear mech on a branch on Yoghurt Pots and it sheared off my mech hanger! Very annoying! It's very weird freewheeling a trail, especially one like Barrys. New hanger ordered and will be back out next weekend!

For the 1st time ever, Dubai closed a 7km section of the the main road towards Abu Dhabi (infront of the Burj Khalifa) in both directions for fun ride this morning. The event eventually started at 05:30 (should have been 04:30) with 3 exotic Dubai police cars leading the way. Did 4 laps of the 14km course and thought it would be rude not to follow the police at the start.

Awesome! Closed roads and police escorts are fun!

What’s the trail conditions like in Clumber at the moment? Can’t decide road or CX bike tomorrow.

They were Ok this morning but we've had a bit of rain this afternoon, it does drain well there though. Quite a lot of leaf fall though which can be a bit dicey in places.

Ta, I’ll see which way wind is blowing in the morning and head into it.

I've been stuck in a classroom all week for a professional course, which means I've not been cycling Tue or Thu, as I usually would.
Yesterday, it was -4 at home. I didn't go cycling in that; roads were very icy.

It's weird that, having only been back on my bike for 4 months, I miss it when I can't go out. frown

Gym today then: indoor cycling.
(It's not the same, despite other "scenery" around.... wink )
