Scree slope Sunday!

Baz sets off on the maiden voyage down the scree slope.

Halfway down and sliding..........

Nearly right down and still sliding!

Clive makes it to the bottom as well.

After a disastrous start to today's ride when I suffered even more punctures and looked as if I'd have to cut short and head home, my rear tyre eventually stayed hard and we managed a 27 miler in cold wet conditions.
The highlight was after struggling along a very muddy Black Hill track, Baz announced he was going to attempt the scree descent which we've eyed up for quite some time now.  It's a tricky run into it and it might take a try or two till we get the start of it right but the descent itself is exhilarating as you have to hang right over the back of the bike as you come down. All three of us made it down unscathed with Clive in particular conquering his vertigo to loud cheers from Baz and me! Off now to fix more punctures........................
