Where did you ride today?

Got a general MTB question that doesn't fit anywhere else? Here's the place.

I just did 25km or so on my local trails. I'm getting faster on them.

Messed about at Cannock, did a lap and half of the XC, dicked about on a couple of sections for a while, then did some hills for the sake of it, then just pedalled around randomly to put some more distance in and kill time.

All in all very good fun.

Scarborough to Whitby and back down the old cinder path, a good 50 mile round trip, first time down there so didn't know what to expect. Good day out with work mates!

I did a fantastic little ride this morning through a couple of glens next to my house. Only 6 miles or so, and nothing particularly rad. Just....nice. As it happens, they go pretty much from my front door to the office. WIN!

22 miles on the road bike around some country lanes, as the mtb is in for repair. 14 months since I rode the road bike last. I forgot how smooth my Shimano 105 is! It was lovely but I still prefer MTBing

What a day, suns out, not to hot, not to cold and the trails are dry. A couple of hours free to get out in the Chilterns around Wendover.

Snuck an extra 12 km onto my ride to work today, taking in the Minley Torq 12:12 racecourse on the way in. Happy, happy days.

I got in 10-12 laps of the bike park - probably my last ride there for the season (might squeeze in a couple of hours this weekend). Fun although I ended up riding with a slow friend which limited my speed and fun and then I got a puncture from not listening to my own advice.

Just a local loop today, bumped into another rider while i was out who showed me some cool singletrack that I had been looking for after spotting on strava. Overall a pretty good ride :)

Marin Trail yesterday.

Highlight of the afternoon was a very, and I mean very, attractive police officer (she was lovely) advising people not to leave any valuables in the car as there had been a recent spate of thefts.

Trail wasn't bad either!

Ride home was nice too. Wall to wall sunshine. Turned a dull day into a 50km beauty.

Lap of the dog at dawn, followed by 7 hours of 'systems thinking' immersion. Oh the joy.
