First MTB ride of the year

First bike ride of the year today!

Me and my mate John did around 20 miles around my local trails and hills in Wiltshire. It was pretty muddy in places but it didn’t rain and now still hasn’t rained for around 2 days… It won’t last.

I live near Calne in Wiltshire England and its not exactly mountainous around here but there are plenty of long climbs.

Today was the second time I went out using my SPD pedals and shoes and though it still doesn’t feel like the most natural way to ride I am slowly getting used to it. No offs but some sketchy riding on slippy surfaced certainly threatened to put me off the bike a few times. Not taking any chances while ‘clipped-in’ at the moment…
