I headed out towards ramsbottom today, via Entwistle. On my way round the reservoir I was practically in the water at points where it had come over the path, I missed getting my camera out for the ducks swimming across. At that point I realised I had no chance of keeping my feet dry! I continued trying a new path to the Strawbury duck - a muddy hike! Then over the firing range and up to Peel tower, no I didn't make it but I didn't really try as my left grip had come loose and I didn't want to pull it off trying to wrestle the bike up there. At the top I stopped and had my lunch - its ages since I've though to bring sandwiches with me on a ride. I got a bit cold sat there so I think its the end of picnics its definetly getting into winter! After that a little explore around ramsbottom and then home. Just before I got to my house a man says to me, "Did you realise you are very muddy?" well I had guessed!!!
