Bike: Commencal Meta 5.5
Distance: 26.2 miles
Time: 2hrs 40mins

There was a small part of me dreading this ride, the first decent mountain bike ride I have had in almost 6 weeks, I knew the lungs would scream, I knew the legs would scream and I knew a small part of me would be screaming, however all in all it was a perfect ride.

Darn cold today again, getting used to this freezing weather, the new thermal knee warmers are perfect, the thermal socks are not, the only downside to the ride was the 40 minutes it took for feeling to come back into my feet after the long ride back down from the forest.

The ride itself was great, ok my fitness has lost quite a bit, it’ll come back though just takes time and plenty of riding but what today did was complete stoke my mountain bike fire again, I am just itching to get out riding again.  The trails were in perfect nick today, some scamblers have been through and actually helped the trail by taking off the top moss layer so each trail just rode really sweet.

Great days ride, followed by curry and beer, what could be better!
