    Naturally no bias against other users AT ALL

    drove road remains - as ever - closed

    I've noticed a lot more bikes (eduros) using it over last year or so though (illegal obviously) and there appears to be a pack of arses on enduro bikes ripping round the MTB trails in Boltby wood...again entirely illegally.

    Maybe that's what we're coming to

    Meanwhile on Rudland Rigg we are well informed


    Love the use of 'track' implying perhaps its not really a road at all and fact its through a SSSI really, grouse moor surely...lets do a raptor count (shouldn't tar all with same brush I suppose)

    Bit rough on VStrom, particularly the approach from Bransdale

    Lovely engine but no GS, miss that 21" front but some new springing all round could help I suppose.

    First ride on that this year...spending too long on two feet these days

    Is that near West Witton JB? If so my favourite fell race is nearby...and...at last its 'on' there's one bit of lane there I don't think I've ridden (only run )

    Should look at getting Serow sorted and go out for a play...mind GSPD is sat there too, that'll be kiss of death to the weather

    Once more (moor?) unto the lanes - a spin out to collect my Hogg Lite Boots from Altberg....some 15 months delayed by COVID sadly. Bit of a saga, but credit to them for running the business in a COVID safe manner, look forward to getting them worn in and years of faithful service.

    Having finally got new boots headed round a bit of dales before heading for home to try and cheat incoming forecast but decided to sidetrack onto Grewelthorpe Moor for a 'quick' lane

    A mass of Lapwings (chewits) and Curlews around this year, more than seen for years. Spotted a chick running across lane - ground nesting birds with no nest really so parents on 'watching brief'

    Note on parent Wall behind.

    Sound of the moors at this time of year and beautiful to see, just be cautious were you stand or ride (then there's the adders too )

    Onto the moor, and obvious road as council has kindly erected gate signs on the moor side, wise investment maybe a few blind off-roaders hereabouts

    As is the way with the big shooting estates the roads are often re-stoned which can make things tricky on what is really a fairly large ponderous off road machine especially two-up

    Bev dismounts on tricky sections, voluntarily rather than 'thrown'

    However...some times it just gets a bit too tricky.

    Not a great rider when it comes to sand, or loose stones. Stick knobbly loose stones on sandy base and a sweat ensues.

    If doesn't always go well

    No damage of any consequence fortunately, scratches on pannier and hand guard.

    If we hadn't been in COVID rimes we'd be off doing something more taxing so would expect the odd 'down' so no point getting too upset...it's what it was bought for, but not happy about it none the less. Decided maybe return rather than continue the several miles left on this trail - could be better, could be worse. The Wee is a great bike but, like all, has it's limit...the limit in this case (as ever) me could claim the lack of 21" front or TKC 70s...but it me

    Turned round a returned carefully

    Naturally the track looks easy peasy in the pictuers.

    Got back just as rain started, got changed and off to a traditional damp BBQ for the evening.

    Lovely day again

    Serow would have got straight through here with no mincing, but PD would struggle near as much I guess...rider the limitation
