So winter started in earnest yesterday with a cold day and the odd bit of ice. Today it had warmed back up again and I was out to meet the girls in Belmont for a night ride. I really didn't want to go and was feeling completely anti-social but since I was leading there was no choice. For once I left on time and they didn't pass me on my way there! Only four of us in total and we set on up the road, the off-road path would have been a boggy mess. Along Belmont Old Road and down the ICR, back up the Pike, off the back, winter hill and back down the Belmont descent to the pub.
A quick drink and we headed home. Great ride and while out the grumpy feeling went, back again now but hopefully it'll go overnight!
