Yesterday evening’s ride set off at 6.15pm from the car park at J E James Cycles Chesterfield store which is only a mile, all downhill from my house, which is quite handy 🙂
It was a 30 mile circular route that took in Chesterfield, Bolsover, Clowne, Barlborough, Eckington, Staveley and Brimington.
At the Carr Lane summit near Bolsover we could see the rain falling in the distance, but we thought we’d get away with it as we were heading in the opposite direction, but by the time we got to Barlborough it was either raining or we were getting wet from surface water.
Rain in summer is OK, as it’s quite cooling but not cold enough to be a discomfort. The worst part is having to clean the bike later 🙁
