The approach to the gate is all important!
Front wheel up, now to change weight to get the back up!
Successfully done! Now for the tricky little climb!
Last nights ride wasn't the warmest this year but at least it was dry.
Dougie was a bit miffed that I hadn't put the pictures on the blog of him doing , the first for us anyway, the climb up through Black Springs gate which he duly acclomplished last week! To be fair it's a tricky ride into it coming along the side of the reservoir but do it he did! What's really annoying is the fact that last night Neil did it as well and more or less in slow motion into the bargain!
A good 25 miler last night with the weather reasonable for a change!
