Andy Smith takes a corner in Calverton Woods

Early on the sun made a rare appearence but at this time of year it doesn't hang about long so light wasn't really good for photography most of the ride. The trails were fairly damp in places making the going slightly harder work than it has been recently but most of the good singletrack was still relatively fast.

This was the first time since the solstice that I noticed the days were getting longer. Maybe because of the very nice sunset while we were still in the woods. Unfortunately towards the end of the ride we lost "Why Aye" Chris and Andy Smith who was staying back to shepard him. We were out for about two and a half hours total before retiring to the pub. Everyone was commenting what a good ride it was as we enjoyed a pint.
