    2000+ ft of climbing is pretty impressive!

    We have friends in Ilkley...

    I have taken the mountain bike up there in the past, but tbh we haven't seen them for ages. We kind of lost touch; I think we both moved house at the same time...

    Hard work today because it was windy. Damp and grey, too; we could do with a bit of sunny weather! It didn't help that I rang my dad just before I went, and he told me he couldn't see my number because the sun was reflecting off his phone... :angry:

    31 miles today, it was dry to start with so took a bike without mudguards, 5 miles in it poured down, my ride included a lot of narrow lanes often frequented by agricultural vehicles, the roads were filthy, bike filthy and I'm filthy but I loved it!

    This week I did my first proper singlespeed rides for ages!

    Tuesday I did 22 miles starting with a pretty sharp climb up a local hill called Brimscombe Hill; I had to stop for a quick break twice which shows how unfit I am.

    Today I did my local short route but in reverse; 13 miles and 1000ft of climbing. The reverse route avoids a narrow, busy stretch which is no fun when you're trying to monster it out in one gear. I'm proud to say I did the whole ride seated without having to stand on the pedals, so maybe the rest day did me good.

    It's nice to be doing singlespeed again and I'm looking forward to getting my Lee Cooper project up and running for the spring: https://www.cyclechat.net/threads/another-project.229718/
