First proper ride with the new forks fitted, new brake pads and new lights. My initial plan was to just do my normal loop across to Greenbooth Reservoir and down Woodhouse Lane.
But my legs felt really good, so I carried on up the hill, further up…
UNTIL I GOT TO THE SODDING TOP!!!!
ALL THE WAY TO DING
IN ONE GO
No mechanicals, no falls, no legs like lead, no heavily laboured breathing.
Just nice spinning, clean crisp shifts and a very happy me!
I got all the way to Ding Quarry and the plan was to do a loop through the wind farm, but the weather closed in and I decided it was best to turn round and have a right good blast down the hill.
The cobbles seemed to all get ironed out as my bike floated over them..

Oh, and the lights fucking ROCK!!!
