Mudlover earned his nick name by taking us for a muddy blast around Leckhampton on a slightly rainy evening ride. Felt real good, and the day after and am still smiling. Thought it would be good to bung the route on the Website. No incidents, except that we honed our mudplugging skills generally and technical climbing skills up Sandy Lane. Paul’s gonna have to have a major overhaul of his front suspension as it was self locking, my chain got stuck between the middle and top chainring, which was a first for me, and near the end mudlover got a slow puncture which meant we had to race back, which was also fun. I was surprised to have a bit of mud on me after the ride, but I put that down to following the leader. 😉 Thanks for the ride Mudlover and all!
