Worth the effort…

I was supposed to ride with big Mr Makin last night, but the M6 was closed, so every road in the vicinity was full of people trying to find a way round it. At about 16:00 hours we had a biblical deluge of rain and it all started to look a bit unlikely.

I set off anyway and took the most circuitous route I could think of, avoiding main roads as much as possible. Got there in reasonable time, with very little traffic issues, considering the total gridlock that I found whenever I had to cross a main route and was pleased to discover, not only was it not raining – the trails were pretty damn buff.

An hours spin and a welcome pint in the Fishpool afterwards – it’s good to make the effort now and again…
