Glentress today. Inspired by the outing with Velo and Radek a few weeks ago, I did the black to the Radio Mast then down the red, back up to the top car park then finally down the blue.
Helped a couple of chaps (why oh why is it never damsels?) fix their chain - they were wowed by the brilliance of a new-fangled powerlink from my camelbak. Got a puncture right at the end of the ride, so that wasn't too bad, walked the final 5 minutes down to the bottom rather than fix it.
The Racing Ralph / Bonty XR on the Mary are just right for the majority of Glentress, roll really easy but still have plenty of grip on the hardpack. A really good ride, I dropped my seatpost at the top of Spooky for the first time in ages... it really does help encourage you to move around a lot more. Brilliant.
Oh aye, the loos/shower block have gone, replaced with 5 porta-loos off to the side. This might mean the new center is close to getting opened, although it didn't look it from the road.
