it’s amazing what guys who can’t get out at the weekend to ride will get up to when unleashed in the week after thay have put the kids (and partners) to bed, the puppy is case in point. the dark really doesn’t seem to phase hime, he’ll throw himself down blind drops, wheelie into dark singletrack he’s never seen before and get air over doubles that are only lit by bar lights. thus has a knock on effect as the enthusiasm is infectious, especially for Ben who is going bigger and more “rad” all the time. so jumps, singletrack, sprinting up hills and the obligatory beer, i swear these night rides are even more tiring than a long daylight ride, my legs certainly ached more the next day than they did after the 40+ mile off road ride from last weekend. but blimey, it’s good fun!
ride 148
15 miles
total 2840
