Halloween night ride at Glentress
Okay so it wasn't really Halloween till Thursday night but last night we opted for Glentress in the darkness, at least it would have been if we hadn't had lights! We parked in the car park next to the Tweed in Peebles and used the track along the side of the river to Glentress as a warm up before tackling the climbs. It's been some time since I've done Glentress and it's amazing just how different everything seems in the dark even with a good set of lights. This could become a monthly event down there, its totally different doing a trail centre to the more natural stuff we usually do in the Pentland Hills. No records set by me, I think I'm beginning to qualify for Captain Slow when riding at night!
