    This is interesting, not that I can do it , but from being 12 ( over 50 years ago ) I lived in Failsworth , then Fitton Hill , Werneth and Chadderton , ( live near London now ) which route will you take ?
    But of nostalgia on my part , been a while since I was back there ,

    Yes yes ok so my inner ring had been cx hammered prior to todays steep hill outing and wasn't up to it anymore. Its a new one for me.

    Would have been another three climbs on there if my chainring hadn't bailed.

    My bike is spotless now, paid particular attention to the drivetrain which is now grit free :okay:. Also did jnrs bike and found a few loose spokes so will need to attend to that at some point. Now watching the CX racing and wishing it was me!

    Wondering what bike Nikki Brammeier is riding? Can't get a clear look at it but looks a bit GT'ish

    It was a good ride today, enjoyed hammering the Grade on the rougher off road stuff.

    Brammier was on a boardman I think.
