Here’s Ross showing us how to ride one of the narrow “bridges” he found on some singletrack, which was completely new to the rest of us, in Delamere Forest. Seven of us enjoyed the sunshine (until it disappeared) with the driest conditions so far this year. Lunch at the cafe, followed by a climb of Pale Heights to warm up again, then back into the forest for more fun.
New member Dave had no problem keeping up, he’s obviously pretty good at the technical stuff. Andy was looking the part wearing his new lycra bottoms. In fact I’m worried that we are passing on too much information to these newcommers – Andy goes twice as fast up the hills now he’s got some spd pedals. And he was the only one apart from Ross to ride over the log bridge. The great thing about these rides in Delamere is that you can do as much, or as little, as you like. It’s never far back to the car park, or back home. Ross led Gareth and me back to Northwich via Crowton and Dutton Locks on the Weaver Way for a relaxing change.
