I just popped out for a quick 10.15 mile ride to get a couple of miles in before the weekends Hit The North event. New wheels are fitted and working very well with a quite pleasant noise from the freehub. Just loud enough to be heard, not loud enough to do an impression of a chainsaw/Hope Hub.
I tried out the path that drops down into the woods right behind my house for the first time today, lots of very narrow singletrack and exposed roots. Most of it I managed to ride, with only about half a dozen dabs/get off and carries to contend with. After that I went onto Shawclough road down towards the infirmary before riding down Clement RRRRRRRRRRRRRoyd street God I hate cobbles!
Just the usual Bury Road/Jowkin Lane loop
GPS crashed after 1.6 miles so don’t have anything accurate to report on but i’ll get the routes uploaded later.
