Lots of talking to them and they kindly moved for me, before closing ranks again only moving when Jon and Ali asked nicely! After that it was over onto Great Hill, the first part was climbable, with the odd comedy moment due to it being a little boggy. But before long we were reduced to walking as we lost the path! But we got to the top of Great Hill and enjoyed some of Jon's biscuits before heading down the slabs in the direction of Winter Hill. This was nice and rideable but soon the slabs ran out and we entered bog central, all of us ended up lay in it at some point - Ali says she didn't but she got stuck more than either of us!
First it was my turn, Ali left me there while she took a picture!
Then Jon ended up in the bog. After a while it became obvious that Ali had some secret powers as she floated along the top, at this point Jon decided to try and catch her putting loads of power down and flying over his handlebars, it was a good impression of superman and I'm sure he was glad he landed in a bog as it is a little softer!
After that we dropped down the cheeky trail to belmont to some nice pub grub before spinning home on the road. (Thanks Jon for pushing me when I spun out!)
