Wednesday 5 February 2020 - Fat Bikers at Larose Forest

Just for a change, Sue and I hired some bikes and joined Ken, David, Chris and Peter for a jaunt on two wheels around the 'single track' routes in this forest, about a 45 minute drive from home.

Great fun - 17.8 km of it, taking two hours. That is, once the hand warmers had kicked in as far as the fingertips on a sunny minus 9°C day. Just a couple of other mountain bikers on the trails, plus some dog sleds on trails wider than ours, on which we had to be careful as our wide handlebars only just fitted inside the trees. In fact, Peter bashed his shoulder on one of these trees and retired at half time.

Back home via a pub lunch at the Étienne Brûlé Micro Brewery in Embrun.
