|At the end wet and very muddy|
What goes up must come down and oooohhhh boy did it come down. A very very fast rocky decent which saw the riders flying down some fantastic single track over loose rocks which made it an adrenaline pumping decent. Once down, back up we went onto the moors. Tim decided he was head over heals,. literally, about the mud. His front wheel went into a very very deep rut and all we saw was feet sticking up. Luckily he was ok but shortly after the dreaded P***ture happened on his bike. A quick feed and inner tube change and we were back on the way being blown every which way but straight.
Another couple of amazing descents (one of which threw a rock into my shin which hurt a lot) and a lot more uphill and we were back at the car park. Stats for this ride:
- 14.63 miles;
- Average Speed 8.08mph (not bad considering the wind);
- Fastest Speed 31.46mph (told you they were fast rocky decents);
- Total Climb 1,899 feet
