The reason I got involved in mountain biking was because of the social side of the sport, and this year I seem to be getting back to that. It’s just about going out to put a smile on my face and catch up with friends.
I wasn’t chasing times with my Garmin.
I wasn’t bothered about missing a few features along the way.
And making room for this epic milkshake in the cafe at Llandegla afterwards … Ha!
It just had to be done. End of…ha!
Spending so much time on the road can’t be doing me that bad either, because my climbing ability hasn’t completely disappeared! (Yet!)
