Club MTB Ride - Jan 2015

Report by Andy Rice

London Colney: Twelve hardy souls braved the sleet and snow for a 21 mile loop of the bridleways south of London Colney.  Given the time of year and the recent weather the ground under wheel was remarkably good.  However, there were some particularly muddy bits that proved quite challenging resulting in muddy feet for some and a full body plant for one of the team!  A couple of mechanicals lost us a bit of time resulting in us getting to Colney Street just as the worst of the snow hit us.  At this juncture there was a mini mutiny and half the team set off home on the road leaving just six of us to complete the full circuit.  Thanks to Mountain Bike Secretary Andy Whitaker for putting together a varied and interesting route.
