No car? er…no problem. I ‘spose.

up to Ramsbottom for the start of a 30-odd miler with Phil. No car since Deb extended her maternity and she nicked mine. So an extra 20 miles there and back to the house.

Nice and dry, along the old railway and the canal, then over Bacup from Rammy. Then back along the canal and the old railway. 7 hours altogether. Felt good. The first time I felt good since Sleepless.

The old FSR is just brilliant on rides like this. Good on the arse, and fast as fook.
