“I’m Liking My Machete” – 22nd September
The original plan was to get up, sort my stuff out and head up to the Peak District with the DayOne to ride some of the railway trails and roads. And possibly book a night at Hartington Hall YHA (£5.50/night with membership discount!) But a very late night, and equally late lie in, meant the plans went out the window.
Sat eating breakfast (at 10:30) I looked at the GT forum, and there was a post from Lump “Short Notice Pools Loop” leaving from his place at 12… bingo! That’ll do nicely!
So with ChrisD we headed out to ride the Pools Loop. Great weather and company made for a really good spin out.
Lump unveiled his new weapon in the ongoing war against nettles and brambles….. I have to say, it suits him!
Back home via Albany Cycles to pick up the rear wheel for the Superfly, then out on the Kawasaki for a 50 mile blast round the roads North of Coventry…. A superb 24 hours, “Life is good!”
