Now before I get into this, lets just say, we dont mention the rain? OK?.............................
Sunday, arrived, shed its cloudy start and become a really beautiful day! So I, and a good friend managed to extricate ourselves from the bondage of winter, and ride out towards Burnswark Hill. As you can see from the distinctly inadequate photo, its a rather unimposing hill.
But! It has a secret history! On either side of this hill are , Roman Forts, and a Parade ground. Plus what we believe to be positions for Ballista. Sort of an old Training ground!
Anyway, it was muddy, cold and really miserable! But we got out, and did around ten miles. Roll on Summer! My bones wont take much more wet!
