Ive never owned a bike before. My dad had witnessed an accident involving a child and a bike, so we were never allowed one as kids. So, at the ripe old age of almost 52, I decided that I should remedy this. So here she is!
Its in an area that I know really well, but Ive never been on the trail and I discovered places that I never knew existed. To my horror, I discovered a tunnel! And a particularly nasty one too, it has a twist in it so you can't see the end. But it made me cycle faster!
Every place looked different from the old railway track - here we found the river Don in its early stage running through.
The area is so much bigger and wilder than I thought,
We found crags covered with flowering heather.
In the distance is Wortley Top Forge - to my great shame another place on my doorstep that I have never visited. I have put this on my "list" now!
I really enjoyed the ride - it was very easy going on my legs. But oh!! my derriere!!!!
