Friday, two and a half hours, on my best bike in glorious sunshine. Saturday, three hours on my best bike, glorious sunshine. And, dry trails! Didn’t even need to wash my bike. Combine this with a super riding partner (Carla), a few apre-ride beers, and fish an’ chips, and you have a perfect weekend. Perfect for me anyway.Sunday we were up early, and drove over to Ludlow to help out at the final round of the Pearce Cycles/Specialized Downhill series. It was a great day, and some bloke called Steve Peat showed up and gave everyone a master-class in downhill racing.
