Mountain Biking

Luke has been desperate to do some proper mountain biking so we set off this morning to Chipping to do a route that Mark did with the Scouts a couple of years ago.

We had quite a climb on the road to begin with but we were soon up on the tops in the sunshine. It was very cold again but when you were in the sun it was surprisingly warm. There was a lot of ice on the tracks which Luke enjoyed riding through and he was way out in front for most of the ride. William was at a friend's so missed out on this ride. I'm not the most confident mountain biker so Mark stayed at the back to keep an eye on me and tell me where I was going wrong! Apparently I was using my brakes too much and need to stand up more on my pedals. Luke thinks I just need more practice!
