A text yesterday led to a change of plans for today and I headed out for my first club ride. The plan was to meet in Horwich for 9:30am and ride for about 3 hours. I knew the latest I could get home was 12noon and that was pushing it as I had an afternoon meeting. I headed over via the climb from Barrow Bridge being suprised that my legs didn't feel too bad and was 2nd there. It wasn't long before their was five of us there ready to go. Off onto the trails round Rivington and over towards the nab. I was just about keeping up with the boys and having fun. Over to White Coppice and the new bridleway was noted - a muddy mess at the moment. Once here I started struggling to stay near them on the hills. Over into Tockholes woods and I realised the time so it was a sprint home from me, shame my legs had fallen off! Going to play with the brakes this week they really should work better than they do!
28miles before lunch and nice and muddy perfect start to the day.
