The first steep ascent successfully completed!
Still going strong it's beginning to get dark and the temperature's down to -5C!
Dougie's son Marc, who's on his Easter school holidays, joined us on our Wednesday night ride with the intention (I thought) of going as far as he could then turning round and heading home. In the event he went right round the Winter Loop with us, never complained once, which is more than can be said of the rest of us sometimes, and succeeded in skimming over frozen snow a helluva lot easier than I did at times! I'm positive we could get him hooked on the mountain biking with a few more outings though his dad wasn't too impressed with me suggesting a dropper seatpost would be a great birthday/Christmas present.
