Friday Ride

My main concerns with riding are about my knee holding out. I twisted it a few weeks ago when riding on roads (a woman nearly reversed into me, I jumped myself and bike out of the way) and it's hurt the last few weekends.

I went out to Delamere Forest this weekend with friends. Cycled fire roads and a lot of singletrack through the trees, impressively I was the only one of the group who could ride up the hills and managed a fairly impressive 8% climb without stopping breathing at any point.

Only did around 5 miles though as Andrew managed to come off down a hideous bit of trail known as No Brains (as in only ridden by those with no brains) and landed on his shoulder. Despite the very inclement weather (temp of 5C with windchill bringining it down to around -2C at times), ridiculous amount of wind and then sleet and hail. Lovely.

Had planned to ride part of the Mary Townley loop tomorrow but due to snow and Andrew's shoulder have had to cancel. BooHoo.

The jumping my bike is a trick called an endo, I had no idea I knew how to do it but I guess I have muscle memory or something that knew how to do it when I was in danger.
