It was a miserable Wednesday, and the only thing to brighten it up was to take a spin. Seeing as it was a solo spin I figured I’d take it easy and bring a couple of old cameras to record a short video from different angles (getting bored of GoPro POV)
The trail was more slippery than usual. The rains have washed a lot of mud away exposing sharp rock. After about 10km I decided the safest option going forward, was to actually return to the van, and go home. Pushing on was only going to risk injury.
The following week I recce’d another area. Seeing as the terrain wasn’t going to be as rough, I took the xTrainer this time. It’s a decent 80km loop that doesn’t cross the same ground twice, and is faster and more free flowing than last weeks ride. More of a trail ride terrain than an enduro.
