Cannock Chase – 26th February
I met up with two guys from work. One, who I don’t really know has obviously been ridimg for a while, the other, Dan, has just got into it. He’d done the Dog last week, and really wanted to ride the Monkey………..
It wasn’t the fastest lap of the Monkey I’ve done for sure, but fair play to Dan, even though he’s carrying a bit of weight and was quite obviously totally knackered he kept going and didn’t start moaning. Not that he would have got much sympathy!
There were short breaks at the top of each climb, and when we got to the top of Lower Cliff the Tangtastics were handed out. While we were eating them a robin turned up and kept running along the log with Lower Cliff cut into it.
We got back to the car park, they packed up and I headed off to do a lap of the Dog, plus a quick hop over the railway to ride Lower Cliff again.
