We set off and found the basin which was the start of the canal, the plan at this point was to ride it all the way into Manchester and then see how we got on with riding back. Just as we passed the sign telling us we were in Hebden Bridge when Hannah called out that she had a puncture. She fixed it and we were on our way...not for long though as it went flat again. This time we checked carefully and only found one place that might be a thorn, not that it was sharp, so we put some magic ducktape on. This time it stayed up....till just before summit, yes another puncture! We decided to ride as far as summit and then head back to Hebden Bridge for food.
We bumped into Emma at Hebden Bridge and then had some lovely burgers for lunch. Then back to Sowerby Bridge for another hot chocolate before I got the train back to Rochdale.
So 67miles, 30 of them was very muddy!
