“Lets ride tomorrow?” ….”Ok, Ae,?”……..”Fine! See you there!”
It was raining, but then thats not entirely unusual! But! I was going, regardless. As we drove to Ae Forest, the windscreen wipers worked relentlessly to clear the water. Spray from vehicles on the road hampered visibility and made the trip a little tiresome.
But we got there, and after a quick change of clothes, and with Gracie all dressed up, Lynne arrived with Craig! A few minutes later we were off along the trail!
Sorry for the rain spots on the camera lens, but it was a bit damp! The idea was to follow the “7 Stanes Route”, one of the MTB rides across the forest, and end up back at the car.
The most of the ride was on open tracks and renewed surfaces. But not to worry, as it turned out the whole ride passed in a flash, all three hours of it! Twelve miles, a nice little starter, for the next long ride.
The three hour ride really did pass in a flash, seems that we need to do longer distances! Ae forest was really magnificent today, wet yes, but fantastic!
