Introduction

A short but hilly and muddy little ride to the south of the river Calder.

Conditions

Mud, mud glorious mud

Narrative

A rainy evening, with standing water, and muddy in huge quantities everywhere.

We didn't really have a specific route in mind, but we just blundered around some of my favourite bit, until we got fed up of the weather.

We did see how other riders sporting rather interesting home made lights. At first all I saw were lights up ahead, which made think we'd blundered into some irrate farmer, upset at people riding across his land at night, but instead it was the helmet mounted light made from halogen downlighters and plumbing supplies!
