After six weeks of roasting hot weather and beautiful sunny skies my summer holidays finally started. Guess what happened to the weather?
A bit of rain wasn't going to stop me, so off I went in the car with the LHT in the back. I parked up above Elmscleugh and then climbed up through the mist into Monynut forest.
It's as well he's still young as he didn't seem very pleased to see me come pedaling out of the mist.
The trails through the woods are probably better suited to something more mountain bike shaped but I was enjoying splashing through the streams and the hard climbing up the tracks. When I got to the point that I couldn't get any wetter I went back to the car and then drove over to the Whiteadder Reservoir for another very wet pedal.
Coffee under the shelter of the trees and then back around the reservoir to the car to head home.
But, the best is yet to come! I made a wee film. Its a bit dark, but so was the sky.
