    Default Went for a little ride

    I decided to go for a ride on my bike a couple of months ago, I'd not been for quite a while but decided to see how far I could get

    I chose a canal run (Leed/Liverpool) as I wanted to check out a camping spot for if I decided to ride the whole length at some point.

    There were some good views along the way:

    Riding over the M65
    Attachment 43653

    Old coke ovens
    Attachment 43654

    My camping spot (just happened to be exactly 25 Miles into the ride)
    Attachment 43649

    Racing a heron
    Attachment 43650

    Leeds/Liverpool half way marker
    Attachment 43652

    Riding back I was riding against the wind and after 40 miles my legs starting to ache so much I called for a lift

    I managed to do another 7 miles before calling it a day and got a lift home. Next time I think I'll do a few smaller runs first.

    I've only posted this now as I thought I'd lost my photos when I upgraded the OS on my iphone, but I managed to retrieve them yesterday using ssh.

    Did you take a picnic with you or did you ride into 2 back packers ?

    Can't go out without the following:

    Spares, tools, waterproofs, lights... and yes a picnic, it's no fun without one (and the extra weight helps the legs, or in this case didn't)
