Snow Ride


With less than a week to the start of the Strathpuffer I thought I had better get used to riding on and in the snow again. As who knows what the weather will be like in Strathpeffer next Saturday? So whilst the country grinds to a slow halt, I was out playing in the trees. Making fresh tracks everywhere I went, not another soul in site, just me, the bike and snow! Bliss..!


Paths and trails that I would normally fly along, were buried under a blanket of snow. Trails are blocked by trees waited down by snow. My tyres crunch through the snow. I duck and dive through this new familiar, yet strange world, following animal tracks, listening to the birds, today I don’t want the trail to end…
