It does fade quick... more quickly the older you get too :-)

about 7:30 depart ?   

Route, Up Rivelin, Up byway to Stannington, top of Stannington hill, singletrack down to Storrs, up the hill to Storrs, down nice footpath to the old works in valley, past the spooky(!) works, back up the road to Loxley golf coarse, nice singletrack through the golf coarse, Loxely common rocky descent, play on Jump at bottom, back in to valley..about 12 miles and 2000' climbing... all  If its dry. (plus add any bits anyone else knows)

You know....I really need to get myself sorted and start doing some riding through the winter. Had a pretty sparse summer by normal standards and fitness and mental well being have really suffered.

Gonna have to start a lights thread I think. My Knights just don't cut it anymore - I want some that are going to burn car drivers eyeballs out.

Flat out until you see God. Count to three. Then brake.
