Twice, in fact. Monday there and back and then again today. Well, the weather was so good this morning it’d have been rude not to.
It’s a lovely ride in along the riverbank, although I do have to lug the big green bike up the blue footbridge while Bowland Stone, I think it is, faff over repairing their towpath wall. They should get their finger out, that side is a prettier ride by far.
Today’s achievements were making it to the 2nd-highest point (inbound) and the highest point (outbound) without stopping. We’re not talking Mt Ventoux here, just a little variation from ‘flat as a pancake’ where I leave the riverbank and cut inland. You would be amazed how much of Bristol is pretty flat once you get down near the river. Or anywhere that isn’t Park Street or Constitution Hill, really. Look at this nice wide, flat road for example.
Or this one.
I know, I know, I should be posting lovely sunny pics of the towpath in May not pictures of grubby back streets in February. I’ll have to save that for another day.
