Today I headed out a little later than planned but said to Ali I would be doing three hours again, she is happy with this as she doesn't want to be home all day on her own while she is ill. I had a vague plan in my head that I would head over to Healey Nab and look at the new trail (I'd heard some of it was rideable) on the way there I did a new trail near me that will be a challenge to get up on the singlespeed but something to aim for. Then once at Rivington I headed down the ICR, stopping 3 times - not good I've been clearing it consistantly recently! Then over to the Nab, headed off onto the new stuff but once again couldn't ride and kept stopping. Could see parts I couldn't work out how to link up and then I ended up out of the Nab and on the outskirts of Chorley. Back in and I followed a track out, which became a bog. Before eventually finding my way back to somewhere I knew. A quick call to Ali - who just laughed - and it was as quick as I could home via Asda.
Great day out there, I was in 3/4 lengths and just a light base layer and jersey. Oh and reminder to self do not leave it so long before pumping up air pressure in the forks!
