68 miles, 2883 metres ascent.
I met up with Phil yesterday to ride the MTL. I’ve been planning to ride the loop from the house for some time now, estimating it would be around 70 miles, mostly offroad.
Not much to say about the ride really, it was warm, it got dark, we had one puncture between us, I lent my phone to a young lad who’d taco’d his front wheel near Hebden Bridge (and had no credit to ring his dad) and there were some notable differences in the food we had both packed. I had energy drink and gels, Phil had bananas and cheese butties. I wish I’d thought of taking cheese butties.
I’m planning on doing this soon. Cheese butties are essential for a long day on bikes!
You ended up in the woods then?
I made it up to Lee Quarry today with Martin – Managed to do a spectacular dismount off a double into a forward roll into a ditch. Its BLACK init?
I did stop in the woods to collect berries and Buckfast 😉
There’s some lovely wild garlic down there at the mo…great with chicken.
