Went out last night for a couple of hours, trail finding over the tops of the Carneddau. Wet cold and muddy, feet frozen solid. But a lovely ride in a clear and starry night.

Riding through the Winter is hopefully going to serve me well come Springtime. 8)

I did another 20 miles round Windsor Great Park last night, stopped by a warden for tresspassing who then said we looked like nice fella's so we can do what we want (?)
Temperature drop really hit home last night, my feet were still like two lumps of ice when I eventually got to bed

On Monday I rode from Rowberrow over the top of the Mendips towards Burrington via Black Down and the trig point at Beacon Batch, then back and then generally all over the place around there including the trig point again. It was a lovely sunny day, not to cold and the trails were pretty much all dry. I saw some people walking, I saw some people painting, I saw three moutainbikers, one in the distance and I spoke to the other two and showed them some trails. I also saw 3 squirrels, loads of pheasants, lots of trees and rocks and stones and some mud. I was out for around 3 hours and did maybe 15 to 20 miles. I was on my SS and I just rode along enjoying the peace and quiet.

Not been out this week yet.
Last week I needed to visit my son in hospital, the trouble was all of my tools are in the UK and the only round rear wheel I had here in Germany was a single speed. Good job it is flat here.

Did about 15 miles today with a couple of mates. One has just picked up a mid 90's diamond back. Did more chatting than riding but sometimes its better that way
