Last Sunday (8th January) I rerode the longish local on- and off-road ride through Bolam, Bishop Auckland, Middridge and Aycliffe which I first did a while ago. It was a great ride again; muddy in places, but not massively so, untill I made the mistake of riding the bridleway around the old Fujitsu factory which has 14" deep puddles in places and was boggin'.
- Distance: 30ish miles
- Surface: Mixed on- and off-road
- Time: 3 hours 45 minutes (a good 30 minutes of which were probably the bit round Fujitsu...)
- Weather: Cool, but dry
- Bike: Inbred, with 2.1″ knobbly tyres
