Got out yesterday for my first ride off-road in ages. Went down to Glentress with Fat Al, AndyJ and JJ. Remembered how unfit I am at the moment. Took my cross bike down so between the 4 of us we had 2 full suspension 26″ (Santa Cruz and Giant) one 29er single speed front suspension (Fisher Rig?) and my cross bike (rigid with 700x38s).
Bit weird but it was fun. Probably not the best bike choice from me but it gave me a pretty good excuse for riding like a doofus.
This was kinda in memory of our riding buddy Phil who passed away 3 years ago. We stopped at his bench for a while on the way up and admired the view. Wish I’d taken a camera with me.
Anyway, here’s to you Phil.
