Paying Pip a visit, he couldn't resist a few shots - and I'm stoked he did!

She's sporting new boots for the season ahead after I got through the pair of NOS Smoke and Dart's last year. Proof, if ever you need it that old rubber doesn't stand the test of time if you're riding (relatively) hard. I finally fitted ceramic pads so curious to see if they make any difference.

Hurry up spring!

Great seeing the two together. Really lovely!

The ‘new’ green Z2s really make a striking appearance.
Hope you had a great time

Coldest morning for some time means only one choice of bike to ride :wink:

New boots and new pads have made a notable difference. Thumbs up all round!

Beautiful - Hot to trot :wink:

Did you see tintin40's post on Today's Ride with the trail closed? I saw Crown Estate on the sign; I take it that's Lookout / Swinley Forest.

I did, and no surprise really. This is when our local trails really come into play :D

Don't let the mud, grey skies or lights fool you :lol: :facepalm: it's British Summer Time! After yesterdays hail the trails were a little more sticky but still really great. These daily early morning blasts instead of the tarmac commute are spot on and just the tonic.

This is the William Willet sundial memorial, the "creator" of BST.
