i never thought i'd here myself say it, but how happy were me and the pooch to see the temperature rise, the rain fall, and the frozen ice melt way!
on sunday we tripped (or should i say slipped) around the macc forest/goyt valley area for three hours. it tough going at the best of times but there was so much of our route that was unrunnable because of sheets of ice that had formed downs the paths/gulleys and even on the grass moor itself. it's the first time i've seen so many bikers pushing their bikes. like all outings it was fun in one way or another but its nice to know that for however long before the next freeze we can run without the threat of a hospital pass thanks to the ice.
