Today's ride, in memory of Pat.

Very hot today.

Rode out to and up Silverhill, great views and is meant to be the highest point in Nottinghamshire. More importantly it has a long fire/gravel road descent, about 1 and a half miles long. Not as extreme as Pats stomping ground but being Saturday there were lots of people there to dodge, and i made a point not to touch my brakes all the way down :)

One for Pat.

Out along quiet roads until the bridle way beckoned. Little used back way up to a winding climb through woodland to the ancient fort.

Only to be met by lots of inquisitive boys, keen to check out my ride. Rather than make a fuss a little fence hopping was required. And still they came.......

Skirted the fort and was pleased to find possibly the best kept footpath. I’ve played on worse fairways.

A day late due to family commitments but thirty-odd miles today on my trusty Palisades Trail, thinking of Pat's wonderful photos and ride reports frequently. Lots of good things have come from Marin County.

Not a ride as such, but a trip out to a local classic car show. Having met Pat at his house I knew he liked his classic cars - so every time I saw something interesting with four wheels I'd tag him on my Facebook. Pretty much every car I posted he'd either owned or driven at some point. That extended to motorbikes too of course - for the last few years I'd send him over a copy of the TT programme so he could follow it on whatever obscure digital stream he could find. So today I was thinking about Pat as I wandered the rows of cherished classics and what he would have said to the photos I would have sent him.
