A great day!

Route                                                        Distance,  Time,  Week Total, Total
Home – Montgomery Hill – Irby – Heswall   31.4       4hrs       40.5           97.3
Landican – Port Sunlight – Bebington – Eastham – Hooton - Caldy
Blue sky, light winds, 8’c.  You could almost mistake today for a summers day and in fact I finished the ride with a sun tanned face!!  This was a FUN FUN FUN ride today and confirmed the fact that I much prefer off road riding, sploshing through muddy puddles and scrambling for grip on claggy tracks to road riding!! 
A lot of ground was covered and I have to say it’s a pleasure to ride during the week – the people you meet are so polite and friendly and will happily exchange a greeting with you!!  One gentleman even held a gate open which meant I didn’t even have to get off my bike at the bottom of a super cool whizzy section!!
Mention must be made of the little buttie shop in Eastham that made me a delicious cup of coffee at midday – much appreciated to warm the slightly frozen, muddy and wet bits of me!!
And now a confession – I had to walk up part of the Caldy Hill section about a mile from home – my little leggies had decided enough was enough!  But apart from that todays ride felt great!
