Thank you, have you still got your Triumph?

What a nice day today, sunny and mild. Shame i had to wait for a delivery for a friend who was at work. Thankfully the delivery arrived mid afternoon so i went out for a quick ride around some woods. The trail there was gloopy and slightly uphill, so the summer tyres made for an interesting spin.

The woods, though short and with all the roots well camouflaged with leaf cover, were great fun and as i hadnt done a lot of miles before reaching them it was a great blast :) even with my gears ghost shifting all the way home i had a great little ride.

Warm with a not to cold cool breeze

Great day for riding, not so for sitting looking out the window, so i chose the former and went for a quick ride around the block.

LOTS of walkers/families/dogs out today, no suprise really, though i did suprise a few of them from behind.

Felt good once out so extended the block a bit, really nice ride.

Cold but sunny today.

With such a beautiful morning and the roads still damp i decided to go for a ride on the mtb instead of mc today. It was cold but not really any wind so riding was just about perfect, and stopping in the sun now and again was quite warm.

I did a longer loop today which included the 5 pits trail, old railway tracks but with plenty of ups and downs to break the monotony, and also means you cover a lot of ground and can connect some nice riding spots. The way i rode the loop meant a loooong slog up to Hardwick hall, just seen on the last few pics. I only live a mile or so from there but its hard earnt.

A great day and ride.

Great views again Mark.

It was chilly first thing here, but by midday we reached almost 12 deg here in West Berkshire.

I did a loop of Greenham Common today and stopped for a couple of pictures in Sandleford Woods, which look lovely in the Autumn colours.

It was still a little soggy under tyre after all the rain on Saturday, which sometimes caught me out with the fall of leaves hiding the mushy bits!

There was a proper chill in the air this morning with a severe frost first thing. By the time I got up to Crookham and Greenham however, it had warmed up to 9 deg C :) .

We had a lot of rain here at the weekend, so it was very gloopy under a fresh leaf fall in the wooded sections. Once I was out on the open common though, the gravel tracks made the going easier.

I bumped into a gaggle of cyclists, and one of the guys who was probably late 40's was on a 2001 Kona Nunu. He referred to it as really old, and wondered what he had said to make me laugh. I rattled off a few of my bikes, including my 1993 Kilauea with P2s - I had to explain what fully rigid meant.

Mild today

In contrast to al's sunny pics i was hoping to wake to snow today, but it has turned a bit milder.

Had a nice ride out through Gara woods, over the road from Sherwood Pines back entrance car park, doesnt see much use apart from locals really so didnt see a single person, apart from a couple of die hard anglers down at the lakes. Some nice little trails with a bit of everything thrown in. Stopped at Parliment Oak for a minute with great views of Pines in the distance.

A great ride which was fun, wet and slippy, especially with summer tyres still on :)
