Pic isn't representative of the whole ride unfortunately! Route:
-to Didsbury down Barlow Moor Road
-to Fallowfield up Wilmslow rd
-to town along the bike route behind Rusholme
-to Jackson's Boat on the Mersey, via the path at the end of the tram track (pictured)
-home along the Mersey path
Flooded and windy were the themes today. (That's the road under all that water).
The grrl's crank fell off (or at least became very fucking loose). She's denying the last person to touch it was the LBS but I'm pretty sure they installed a replacement BB for her because I couldn't be arsed with it.
Did the Edinburgh Alpkit winter gravel ride today. A nice dusting of snow/ice going through the Pentlands.
Had to walk down the final hill of the day because it turns out my brake pads were worn to the point of non-existence. Oops.
Have to regrow some motivation to get out on the ice cold Scottish gravel myself after the week away.
My body hates me but I managed to get 80k and 1000m vert out of it on Sunday, plus a nice view.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
