Random musings about mountain bikes…

Exmoor Adventure

Just had a great week in Exmoor riding my bike with my friends.

Weather awesome, trails great.  It was just amazing.

As always used the Vertebrate Publishing guide books by Nick Cotton.  They had some great routes in them and made the most out of the area.  The only point I can comment on is the ascent stated in the book is generally not accurate and was always more in real life.

I did not expect the steepness of the hills in the area and can say that it is probably the hardest weeks riding I have ever done.  The Sunday when we took in Porlock, Minehead and back over Dunkery Beacon was probably the hardest days riding ever and finished me off…

As always took a few pictures of the trip, see below:

Great views out from Withypool...

Phil R on the Moors...

Stu on Tarr Steps.

I decided not to ride the steps!

Following the river to Withypool.

Great days riding.

Phil loving the Exmoor bridges...

Another day, another hill...

Sometimes the trail wasn't so obvious.

Stu - Calm and composed.

Plenty of river crossing to cool the feet...

Lynmouth Front... Nice ride to a view...

What a great week!!!!!
