Well not quite, this is the view from the top of another track we couldn’t get up. Giving a total of three dead ends climbs for the day, I did expect a little more organisation from Nick. I certainly didn’t expect us to get lost!
But before that sounds like a complaint, I should point out that Nick was so charming about it in his eccentric way that no one minded at all. The guys and girls here this weekend are all looking for adventure, and what bigger adventure is there than getting lost? It certainly guarantees seeing something you’ve never seen before!
At the top of one gnarly climb I got a round of applause from Mark and James. This came with the accompanying comment “You’re either very good, very brave or very stupid!”. What can I say?
The VFRs certainly aren’t off road bikes, but it’s pretty impressive what they can still do. Normal roads eventually returned though, and with the bikes back in their element the rest of the ride was an absolute pleasure (and relief!).
