29/04/16 FRISTON 2B Friday night ride report

Only two of us again this week , we set up with the 3C riders until the Cardiac hill assent when they left me behind, I can’t follow as they are much fitter than me! 🙂  I was leading our 2b from the back as Elisabeth is a much better climber than me.  The weather was ideal for forest cycling and the trails on the west side of cardiac were amaizinly dry in comparison to my last forest rides two weeks ago.  The only muddy part was the top section of the bomb crater run. We did 10.3 miles in 1h 32 moving time, reached a max speed of 25.3 and average 6.8mph.  Spending a couple of hours cycling in Forest on forest on a sunny Friday night is certainly a good way to wind down to start your weekend, so I would strongly recommend it. We are looking for more riders, the 2B is a good way of experiencing many of the Friston forest trails and the ride can always been adjusted to the new riders abilities.  There is a big hill to go up, but this can be broken into segments with stops as required, and the downhill trails can be done to your own speed level. 3/4 of the ride is now done in daylight, and you can experience some lovely forest sunsets. I did another short video – from a different angle this time, as the camera was chest mounted . I will be uploading a short film later on. If you are interested in riding with us, drop me an email.
