Got home tonight and added the guards to my bike, the rear attaches via a rubber backed nylon strap that locks around the seatpost. The front fits on the usual crud catcher bosses.
So, down to the ride.. I hoped that I’d be able to climb the hill in 15 minutes tonight, but reality called and it took me 20 minutes, but with 2 stops, one of which was 5 minutes as I felt incredibly nauseous. With incredibly leaden legs, I continued beyond the ruins of the Moorcock Inn and up towards the turning for Ding Quarry.
I decided to turn round and change my route to drop down via Greenbooth Reservoir, down Woodhouse Lane and back across the fields towards home.
unfortunately, being a pillock, I forgot to click on the start button on my Nokia Sportstracker App.
