Well, new tyres fiitted, had to get out today.

Took a cycle track in North wales from Gaerwen to Malltraeth/Newborough woods, and back, not sure the distance but two hours riding approx 14 - 16 MPH.

Some great scenery, Mettalica, and a good sweat, what more can you ask for?

    I went out on Sat pm. Rode 9 miles to Follow The Dog, rode it, then rode back the long way. Most excellent.

    I had a great blast yesterday for a number of reasons......

    1. I was supposed to go to b&q for some outdoor undercoat for the new fence in the front garden.
    2. Got a phone call from one of the boyos at about 9.30 when the missus was still asleep asking if I was coming to glentress.
    3. Made bacon rolls and tea for me and the wifey (already in riding gear by this point)...woke her up with the breakfast and told her i was going cycling. Top result as she was still half asleep with a big smiley bacon roll face and just said hope you have a good time!
    4. Rode the SXC route at glentress which took in some of the off-the-beaten-track trails and I thought one in particular that I had never found before was the best trail at glentress!
    5. Really felt like I was stomping it down......showing good improvment after my holiday in Fort Bill!
    6. Got home to a nice dinner all cooked, then a couple of glasses of single malt before bed.

    Superb!

    This sounds like the quote "Ask forgivness, not permission" from one of the forum invigilators here I think, great quote

    Sounds like a good day.
