I rode up to Winter Hill earlier on the cross bike, up to Horwich through the badlands and up the tarmac climb, with the intention of riding down to Belmont Road on the “San Marino” downhill on the other side. I got stopped at the mast by some security blokes who wouldn’t let me go any further. Something to do with guys working near the top of the mast – I couldn’t see anyone though. I decided they must be covering up a UFO landing or something so turned around and rode back down the tarmac.
Then I went for a zip around some woods near Nob End.
