One thing Drumlanrig last weekend showed me is that my weakest area is riding singletrack. Especially the muddy, rooty stuff. It is just so different to my local riding. So I decided to use the fact I was going to Wales (more about that in another post) to ride some of the purpose built singletrack. So on friday I headed off to Penmachno - there had recently been a second loop added. I headed up the trail about 10 minutes after a group of lads, catching them afrer 2.5 miles. Soon I was at the switchback climb I remembered being so hard last time. But today it seemed fine. Then I split to the right to do loop two which has some stunning views. I decided that when I got to the split again I would re-ride loop 2. Only I ended up back on loop 1 without realising. On a nice bit of singletrack i went flying, I have some lovely bruises to show for it.
On getting back to the car I decided to go around again, slightly slower this time but no falls.
