Friday night ride
Managed to get a pass out for a Friday night (which is a change to taking the kids to swimming lessons).
A team of three of us - Ade, Stu and myself had planned to meet at the car park at Sherwood Pines but when I got there first, I found out the car park closed at 8 p.m. which was of no use whatsoever as we would have lost an hour on the bikes of a two and half hour blast. Why FC do you do this??
Plan B swung in to operation and re-rendezvous'd at the Dog & Duck round the corner which meant a closer refreshment point at the end of the ride!
Highlights of the night were:
- Using the Satmap Active 10 units in anger which meant we could blast anywhere without fear of getting lost although Ade's gps skills defnitely need refreshing!
- Finding the bike park and trying to act like 13 year olds and catch some air - failed miserably! None of us had the bottle to even try the medium section!
- The excellent weather and the pint at the end!
