still feeling the effects of my cold and decidedly under par riding wise but Matt fancied a ride after a long day at work so hit the woods for an evening pootle round, trails are dry again and we rode a few of the usual trails generally feeling better about it the further we pedaled, the up through the woodyard we attempted the tricky rooty climb, keeping wide left which has the best line, i cleared it but as matt folowed he stalled on a root, the front wheel lfted and he forgot that he should have stepped to the right….he stepped to the left which is just a void and a 3-4ft drop into a stream bed!, because of the dry conditions this is now just a bog, a bog containing a horrible stinky gloop which covered his left side, so bad even flies were avoiding him! ride cut short to get him fumigated
