Summer has arrived. I took the old Shogun Trailbreaker bike on a 15 mile circuit from home to Halfacre Lane in Thelwall and back, on a beautifully sunny afternoon, returning through Lymm, beside the Bridgewater Canal.
I’m still using this old steel bike for flat trips such as this, but the new bike, ‘Stumpy’ will get its first outing soon.
A reminder to anyone who fancies a bit of exercise on Sunday 9 October: the Calderdale Mountain Bike Marathon – a challenge, not a race – will accept postal entries until after the weekend. Otherwise you can enter on the day.
It’s great fun! A superb route.
