|A bit nasty out|
It was a great day to be out. I had the trails all to myself and the thick mist made for a very peaceful, isolated feeling; much needed after a hectic week. Still, there's only so much fun to be had riding 100km through muddy trails in the wind and rain. Scrub that, who am I kidding, I had a great day! In fact I've pencilled in the same tomorrow, but heading out in another direction.
|Fantastic swoopy trails dropping through the trees, extra exciting when covered in a layer of greasy mud|
and with every corner or drop scattered with wet roots. It's not all SDW around here!
There's not much more to say about the ride, although the waeather did lend the day a certain feeling of "epicness", but you don't see a lot when the view is a bit like this, even when up on top of a wind swept Chanctonbury Ring:
|Lots of mist on Chanctonbury Ring, but I didn't see any gorillas|
|I didn't help the fast summer tyres live up to their name in the mud,|
still, it made the singletrack a blast and more than a little exciting!
|This was clean when I started my ride :-(|
|Left, drop, swoop right drop left, & then grin like a small child. Repeat.|
And this is what my day looks like on Google Earth:
