As no riding tomorrow and this afternoon 'domesticated' it had to be an early start. So at Cannock for 8.00 and a couple of laps of Follow the Dog. They have been doing some trail re-laying and it seemed less harsh than I remembered it.
The front tyre seems to be slipping on the rim so maybe this Panaracer is going the way of the rear one...or the rim's spreading :?

Damn! Regular group rides have spoiled me!

I can't find the motivation to go out and cycle on my own this weekend...In the old days I would have ploughed a lonely furrow...now I'm even offering to do DIY rather than face the cold wind and rain!


It's true - I have 2 hours to myself just now and can't be bothered to go out on my own!! :shock:

Here I am listening to the footie instead...

Believe me, if there had been the slightest hint of rain this morning I would have stayed under the covers. :oops:

Really enjoyed Cannock, but the surface of a lot of the stages is rounded pebbles which when damp are as bad as roots and I was extremely cautious ( SLOW ), but it was so quiet I didn't hold anyone up or get passed. We really must organise a ride that covers the whole Chase rather than just the centre.
So many rides to fit in... can't be bad :P

Andy (Gump) knows Cannock like Matt knows the Pines. He'd be up for it I'm sure :wink:

Maybe it should be posted in the rides section if Gump is willing to lead.

I have his mobile number - I can contact direct - he's not been on much lately. Will do when I get back off holiday.

I'd love to know Cannock better. I'd be up for that.
