Headed out to meet Vikki in the afternoon, I couldn't face the crowds that would be there if I rode during the day. Think it was a good choice as Vikki said it was packed around upper barn on her way over. I already knew it was windy after being blown around on the way over but we still headed up Winter Hill via Matchmore Lane. It wasn't too bad on winter hill, I mean it was very windy but the fact that the bog that is the diversion round the mast made up for that. Then I set off down, only I had to pedal to move at 4 mph. It takes a lot of skill to ride the descent that slowly!!! I was trying to pedal faster.
After that it was back over to Rivi via the cheeky path and the Belmont Old road, down by the horse farm, which I think might be Jon's 100yards?, then we split and I headed home. Taking in lots of steps both up and down. A nice ride even with the wind.
