Simon and Lee head out early yesterday with the mountain bikes up to Hamsterley Forest in County Durham. It was a 26k ride with LOTS of gruelling uphill sections (the first 2k was ALL uphill) but had more than enough awesome downhill sections and a LOT of highly technical bits to boot. Despite being a significantly shorter ride than Dalby, it certainly beat Simon almost as much 🙂
It was a good day out where we took it a bit easier given it was just the two of us, but we still felt absolutely BEAT come the return to the car. 🙂
Simon to Emily with her new roof rack for the bikes – incredibly having the bikes up top destroys fuel economy – down to around 42mpg from probably about 56 to 58mpg that it would have been without the bikes on top.
