Knew that snow would be here soon, so got out on the bike for a couple of hours yesterday afternoon, while I still can....

It's funny to compare riding this route in the summer, when my brain was boiling in the 28 degree heat, with riding it in late autumn when you can ride and ride without danger of overheating. And of course, the scenery has changed character...

Not long after I'd taken that last photo, I was zipping down a track when I heard what sounded like a drummer hitting a loud "cymbal crash" -- but that noise was quickly followed by a "floppety-cloppety-floppety-cloppety" noise coming from the rear tyre and a bumpy ride for my backside. 45psi to zero in less than a second... :roll:

Thankfully, Slindon village was a short walk away which gave me somewhere to replace the rear inner tube before carefully limping home with the new tube slightly bulging out of the gash in my rear tyre. :shock:

Here it is after some of the air has been let out....

Friday, a happy but cold 2 hours single tracking at Whiteways. Can't tell you how far because it was so cold the battery on my speedo failed!

Middle of Eartham Woods near Slindon the place is called Sixways because 6 bridleways meet and cross there.
